Kanye West to appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live after 'rap feud'

LOS ANGELES (AP) - ABC says Kanye West is appearing on Jimmy Kimmel's late-night show, less than two weeks after the pair got into what Kimmel called a "rap feud."

The musician will be a guest Wednesday on "Jimmy Kimmel Live," the network said Tuesday.

In late September, Kimmel's show aired a skit that mocked a West radio interview by having a child re-create it. West responded with an irate phone call to Kimmel and a series of Twitter messages that labeled the comedian out of line and unfunny.

In preparation for the show, ABC is urging fans to show their support for either side on social media. On Twitter you can use the hashtags #Kimmel, #JKL, #NODISRESPECTTOBENAFFLECK, or #ALLDISRESPECTTOJIMMYKIMMEL to tweet at Kimmel (@JimmyKimmel) or West (@KanyeWest).

Discussing the incident on his show last month, a smiling Kimmel said he always wanted to be in a rap feud. The talk show host is known for his parodies and pranks, including a recent staged twerking accident video that became an online sensation.
