Why is Kanye West mad at Jimmy Kimmel right now? Though good old Yeezus has become known for his angry rants and lack of self-control in heated moments, tonight Twitter fans have been getting an earful from the rapper as he repeatedly slams late night show host and comedian, Jimmy Kimmel.

The spoof skit was titled "Kimmel Kid (re)Creation." Prior to the spoof Jimmy Kimmel did a brief overview of the interview from Kanye West where the comedian says Yeezus reportedly said a lot of "really weird stuff."

Amid the crowd's laughter, Jimmy Kimmel continues to take shots at the musician, leading up to the skit "Kimmel Kid (re)Creation," acted out by children.
