Jimmy Kimmel reacts after Kanye West says "we're not going to Jimmy Kimmel the situation" on TMZ Live
West was on TMZ Live Monday when he invoked Kimmel's name when Harvey Levin tried to cut to a commercial break. West was referring to his August interview with Kimmel in which the talk show host cut to a commercial break after the hip-hop mogul didn't immediately answer his question about Trump. "I honestly don't know whether to be flattered or offended by that," Kimmel said the way his name was used on TMZ Live.

Kanye West sparks outrage on TMZ Live by saying slavery was a choice for black people
TMZ's daytime show got a special guest today: Kanye West, whose decision to appear with Harvey Levin and his staff resulted in perhaps his most bizarre statement yet, sparking an immediate Twitter backlash. "When you hear about slavery for 400 years—for 400 years? That sound like a choice!" he said. "Like, you was there for 400 years, and it’s all of y’all? It’s like we’re mentally in prison. I like the word prison, because slavery goes too direct to the idea of blacks. It’s like slavery, Holocaust, Holocaust, Jews. Slavery is blacks. So prison is something that unites us as one race … the human race." Longtime TMZ staffer Van Lathan, who is black, called out West: “I think what you’re doing right now is actually the absence of thought … there is fact and real-world consequence behind everything you just said. While you are making music and being an artist … the rest of us in society have to deal with these threats to our lives.”
