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?

Kanye is a crybaby, Jimmy is just calling him out on it. What's the big deal? Kanye throws hissy fits like a 5 year old all the time.

Irving Azoff is a pompous ass! Quite possible Kris Jenner promised him her youngest daughter for his comments.

Irving looks like the joke by backing KW. KW is a raving lunatic.

So, an old white guy takes Kanye's side and bad mouths Jimmy. Big deal. Kanye clearly acted way out of proportion to Jimmy's joke. Kanye made himself look like a total fool and Kimmel is loving it. Kris Jenner, the failed talk show host, probably called Azoff and asked him to defend Kanye. Pathetic. Kanye is becoming a bad joke and he only has himself to blame. When the elderly have to come to your defense, and you claim to be the number one rock star on the planet, you clearly aren't number one anything. More like number two.

I think Kimmel pretty much has the upper hand here. Kanye had one or two good tweets, but on the whole comes off looking like a deranged 7th grader

I think for it to be a huge celeb backing, more than 12 people have had to of heard of him. And a music guy at that? I don't think Kimmel has even heard of him, let alone give a ****. Is jimmy trying to get a record deal? No? Then go back to doing whatever it is you do.

GROW UP. You look sad and pathetic refusing to take a joke. I mean, at first I thought his dramatic, baby-with-awet-diaper response was a joke.

Of course, TMZ will try and back the Kardashian family. Sucking the Kartrashian teat, as always.
