Kanye West shouldn't check his Twitter timeline Thursday night.

Even his fans are siding with Jimmy Kimmel, who spoofed the Yeezus rapper's BBC interview on Tuesday night's episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live.

Furious about the parody that featured children reenacting a clip of the interview, West lashed out at Kimmel in a series of 10 venomous tweets that called the comedian "out of line," good sex deprived, crazy looking and not as funny as his ex Sarah Silverman.

The general consensus is that West needs to lighten up and that his rampage has encouraged more people to watch the clip he doesn't want anyone to see.

Tweets supporting West are rare.
