LOS ANGELES (AP) - Jimmy Kimmel and Kanye West either are engaged in a bitter feud or a heck of a parody.

Kimmel's monologue Thursday night was devoted to discussing what he called a "very angry phone call" he received from West about an hour and a half before taping ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live."

Kimmel said that West called to complain about a comedy bit Kimmel's show did this week in which a child re-enacted an interview by the rapper.

According to Kimmel, West told him to apologize publicly and that his life would be better if he did.

Kimmel then cited tweets posted Thursday on West's official Twitter site that forcefully take Kimmel to task, some using profanity.

Requests for comment made early Friday to representatives for Kimmel in Los Angeles and West in New York weren't immediately returned.
