The pair were embroiled in what the chat show host described as his ‘first rap feud’ last month when Kimmel parodied a Radio 1 interview West gave to Zane Lowe.
‘JIMMY KIMMEL IS OUT OF LINE TO TRY AND SPOOF IN ANY WAY THE FIRST PIECE OF HONEST MEDIA IN YEARS.’ The rapper wrote on Twitter following the sketch’s transmission, the beginning of a very long and angry rant at Kimmel.
The host refused to apologise and gave a very sarcastic take-down of West’s tweets, in what was shaping up to the best celebrity feud of the year.
It seems the pair have made up however, with Kimmel posting yesterday: ‘TOMORROW NIGHT, MY GUEST WILL BE @kanyewest (for real, yes and was it all a setup, no)’.
A set-up would have been a plausible explanation, given rival show Late Night with Jimmy Kimmel recently fooled the internet with a fake ‘twerking fail’ video.
Kanye West has yet to confirm his guest appearance, but is known for his laconic approach to Twitter.
