Kanye West is mad. Like, really mad. Again.

Our favorite notoriously sensitive artist was none too pleased about being made fun of by Jimmy Kimmel earlier this week. So, in Kanye fashion, he took to Twitter to rant…and rant. Backstory: Kimmel hired two child actors to re-enact West’s sometimes bizarre BBC interview in which he called himself “the biggest rock star on the plant.”
