International buffoon and INFREQUENT ALL-CAPS TWITTER USER KANYE WEST is freaking out against Jimmy Kimmel right now on Twitter. Mr. Kardashian is upset about a segment from Wednesday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live (embedded below) that used child actors to spoof Kanye’s recent crazytown BBC interview.

It’s somewhat painful to read, but I’ve found my new favorite hashtag: #NODISRESPECTTOBENAFFLECK

Big-time NSFW content — updated with Kimmel’s on-air reaction — ahead.

Here’s the offending segment:

Update: KImmel addressed the feud on Thursday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, running through the tweets onscreen and saying Kayne had called him about an hour before he’d gone on air.

“He told me on the phone, and I swear to God this is true — ‘I am the most powerful voice in media. I am Pac.’ He said Pac a few times to me,” Kimmel said. “I guess he means Tupac.”

“He said, ‘You will never be able to show your face at a 14-year-old’s high school football game and be cool again.’ He really is Pac. I mean, that’s right out of the Tupac playbook, isn’t it?”

“So, I don’t know. I don’t understand it. I don’t know why he’s angry. That bit was pretty innocuous,” Kimmel continued.

But there is an upside.

“Finally, I’m in a rap feud. I always wanted to be in a rap feud,” Kimmel said. “Right now we’re at DefKanye Five. Thank you, Kanye. I appreciate it.”
