Jimmy Kimmel inadvertently started a rap feud with Kanye West when he spoofed West’s recent BBC Radio 1 interview, re-enacting it with little kids.

The bit, which aired on Tuesday, took quotes from the interview and acted them out with child actors.

Kanye was not amused by Kimmel’s trivialization of, what he considers, one of the most important, “honest” interviews in history. Kanye’s Twitter rant against Kimmel began Thursday night, and it has yet to stop.

Kimmel responded to West’s tweets, writing a simple, “apparently @kanyewest is VERY VERY ANGRY with me…” But he quickly refrained from commenting on the subject at length on the social media website. Instead, Kimmel opted to tell his side of the story on his show, Jimmy Kimmel Live.

West attacked Kimmel via Twitter, mentioning his popular skit “I’m f—ing Ben Affleck,” and his ex-girlfriend Sarah Silverman.

As Kimmel explained on his late night show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, West called Kimmel personally to air out his grievances with the sketch and demand a public apology. Kimmel, needless to say, did not comply. However, Kimmel also refrained from attacking the self proclaimed rock star.

The feud is still going on, with many on Twitter jumping in to give their opinions, and the story has attracted so much attention that people started doubting its honesty. Kimmel recently revealed that he was the mastermind behind a massive internet prank (the Worst Twerk Fail Ever YouTube video), but he insisted on Twitter that this feud with West was not a prank.

Kimmel isn't the only one seeing the humor in this new feud. Comedy Central decided to spoof West's rants to promote new episodes of South Park.

With this feud, it seems West has, if nothing else, proven himself as a man of his word.

“People are going to look at this interview and say, ‘I don’t like Kanye. Look, he looks mad. I don’t like his teeth.’… But one thing they will do? They will play this interview in five years. They will play this interview in ten years, and say, ‘He called that, he called that, he called that,” West said during the interview.
