His use of hashtags was a virtuoso performance. #NODISRESPECTTOBENAFFLECK.

KANYE WEST IS very, very angry with Jimmy Kimmel.

Why? Well, it all started with this interview Kanye did with Zane Lowe, in which he talked about “leather jogging pants” and said his music was “perfect”.

Jimmy Kimmel, like the rest of the world, was a bit astounded by this. So he parodied the interview by making two children read out the transcript. Here’s what started the fight:

Kanye was very unhappy.

He then followed up with two interesting images, just to ram his point home.


And this, more baffling one:

Jimmy Kimmel, meanwhile, has been fairly measured in his response:

Although he did appeal to Kanye to stop subtweeting.

And extended the hand of friendship.

Meanwhile, the memorable hashtag #NODISRESPECTTOBENAFFLECK has become what you might call ‘a thing’.

Poor Ben Affleck.
