Kanye West

Huge Celeb Backing

In War with Kimmel

Kanye West
just pulled out  the big guns -- getting support from mega music mogul Irving Azoff ... who's calling Jimmy Kimmel "a joke" ... for spoofing Kanye.

Azoff stepped in the middle of the Twitter war today by posting a couple of tweets -- one informed Kimmel that "@kanyewest kicked your ass."

It's impressive backing for Kanye since celebs rarely speak out against each other ... for fear of pissing off someone they might work with in the future.

Then again ... nobody's bigger than Irving ... who, if you don't know, has managed The Eagles, Christina Aguilera, Journey, Fleetwood Mac, Morrissey -- to name a few.

Azoff added another shot at Kimmel ... basically calling him small-time.
By the way, Azoff and Kanye have a clear connection -- Irving is tight with the Kardashians. He even hosted Khloe and Lamar's wedding at his Bev Hills mansion.

Jimmy, time to get on the phone. Matt Damon?

The reason Kanye can't get into fashion is some combination of the following : his ideas suck, he's prone to reckless behavior that effects his image/brand, he's difficult to work with/for. Take your pick. Also, he acts like a child.

Irving Azoff, okay. In the end it's not Irging Azoff paying for whatevever the F this assh0le is putting out there so it's kind of moot, isn't it?

WHO cares who's "supporting" Kayne! He's a NUT CASE who needs ANGER MANAGEMENT AND MEDICATION!

The fact that Azoff is "tight" with the Kardashians just shows why kind of person he is! It's ALL about $$$$$$ and who can kiss whose ass!

Irving Azoff, huh? Was Clive Davis too busy busting someone's chops on Drake's behalf or something?

Oh please. Who cares what the old fart Ivring says. Jimmy has made fun of countless big time celebs and they didn't react the way Kanye did because they are mature and can take a joke.

so this Irving person's rant doesn't count because he's biased...big time. ***BTW Jimmy Kimmel has TONS of A list friends....and he's a good person who's doing very well for himself.

Huge celeb backing? I would hardly call one not so famous celeb a huge backing. KW is a tool douche bag and TMZ just sucks out the a s s anymore.

Irving Azoff? Really, that's your big celeb agreeing with America's #1 douchebag?
His support will resonate with the public the same way David Duke writing a restaurant review of Cantor's Deli would.
