West was very angry over a “Jimmy Kimmel Live” parody skit in which Kimmel hired a child actor to portray West in a recreation of an interview his BBC radio 1 interview and took to Twitter to express himself. Kimmel tweeted earlier:
“When you said you think you’re a genius, I think that upsets people,” Kimmel said. “But the truth is a lot of people think they’re geniuses, but nobody says it because it’s weird to say it. But it is most certainly more honest to say, ‘I am a genius.'”
“I’m totally weird and totally honest and I’m totally inappropriate sometimes, and the thing is for me not to say I’m not a genius I’d be lying to you and to myself,” West states.
He stated his views against the Hollywood Walk of Fame organization for denying his girlfriend, Kim Kardashian, a star and reflected on his recent negative interactions with paparazzi.
“The way the paparazzi talk to me and my family is disrespectful, you know what I’m saying?” said West. “We bring something of joy to the world. When people hear my music they have a good time, and I should be respected as such when I walk down the street. Don’t ask me a question about something you saw on the tabloids. Don’t try to antagonize me, because it’s not safe for you in this zoo, you know? Never think that I’m not from Chicago for one second.”
