September 30, 2013 07:32:05 GMT

Just a couple of days after late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel acknowledged that he found himself in a rap feud with G.O.O.D. Music mogul Kanye West, any trace of their online feud could no longer be seen on Twitter, as West apparently has deleted all his angry tweets against Kimmel. The rap superstar went on a Twitter rant last week after the "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" host spoofed his BBC 1 radio interview.

Aside from the Twitter messages, as Kimmel himself revealed during one of his opening monologues on his show, West had also called him personally to air his disgust over the spoof. Kimmel for his part thought there was no cause for West to raise hell over the spoof since it only made use of a couple of kids playing him and his interviewer saying the same things he said in his actual interview.
