Uh-oh, Kanye West is mad again. But this time the target of his wrath is more mystifying than usual: a Jimmy Kimmel sketch that doesn’t even skewer Kanye that hard.

Here’s the sketch, and I do agree with Kanye that it’s kind of lame — it’s just one of those “kids re-enact” things that have been beaten into the ground, in this case for Ye’s recent BBC interview. It’s not particularly mean though, right? It’s literally just a child saying his words. (Warning: Some of them aren’t safe for work.)

Kanye apparently disagrees.

What’s the honest media he’s referring to? Kanye’s interview? His leather jogging pants?

Kanye’s about to get not safe for work, so stop scrolling if your boss is uptight, or is Kanye West.

That seems unfair to Sarah Silverman.

Do what you must, gentlemen, as long as Ben Affleck’s name remains unsullied.

OK, that probably makes it up to Sarah.

Heh.

HA. I don’t understand this but it’s amazing.

Kimmel responded last night on the show, claiming that this is not part of the bit and that Kanye’s rage is in profound earnest. Yeah, you know he’s mad when he busts out the Spongebob memes.
