Kanye West has deleted the series of foul-mouthed Tweets he aimed at US comedian Jimmy Kimmel last week (September 27).

The rapper reacted angrily to a parody interview aired on Kimmel's TV chat show, in which he spoofed Kanye's extraordinary radio interview with BBC Radio 1. You can watch the send-up, which sees a child actor re-enact Kanye's bizarre and lengthy rant in which he proclaimed himself the "Number One rockstar on the planet", while sipping a chocolate milkshake, at the bottom of the page.

West fired off a series of Tweets in response to the interview, but has now removed all of them from his Twitter feed. The most recent message on his profile is now simply a plug for the Pusha T album 'My Name Is My Name', which West served on as an executive producer.

Originally, he had written: "JIMMY KIMMEL IS OUT OF LINE TO TRY AND SPOOF IN ANY WAY THE FIRST PIECE OF HONEST MEDIA IN YEARS." Later in his rant, which eventually ran to 10 tweets, West revealed he had called Kimmel to discuss the interview skit, writing over two tweets: "I LIKE YOU, YOU KNOW ME, I WENT TO YOUR FAMILY'S WEDDING... WHO YOU MADE IT CLEAR TO ME WASN'T YOUR FAMILY WHEN I WAS ON THEN PHONE WITH YOU 5 MINUTES AGO, YOU MANIPULATIVE MEDIA MUTHERFUCKER."

Kimmel has since discussed his angry phone call from West on an episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, telling viewers the rapper had given him two choices, the first being to "apologise publicly".

"And that was really the only choice," Kimmel continued. "The other choice he gave was 'my life … your life is going to be much better if I apologise,' and then he started tweeting today. And I don't even know if I've seen some of these because they're happening as we speak."
