Kanye Scheduled to Appear on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" Wednesday

You'll want to tune in to ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday night, because Kanye West and Jimmy Kimmel will come face to face in the wake of their Twitter feud.

Two weeks ago, Kanye tweeted a string of insults directed at Kimmel, all because the late-night host mocked an interview the rapper did with the U.K.'s BBC Radio 1.  In a sketch that aired on Kimmel's program, child actors were used to play the parts of Kanye and the BBC interviewer.

Kanye wrote in all caps, "JIMMY KIMMEL, I DON'T TAKE IT AS A JOKE... YOU DON'T HAVE S*** B*** HOPPING OVER FENCES TRYING TO TAKE PICTURES OF YOUR DAUGHTER," and, "SHOULD I DO A SPOOF ABOUT YOUR FACE OR YOU F***ING BEN AFFLECK…#NODISRESPECTTOBENAFFLECK #ALLDISRESPECTTOJIMMYKIMMEL!!!!" among other things. He later deleted his tweets.

Kimmel responded with a few joking tweets. Hours later, he shared his side of the story on his show, telling his audience he thought the sketch "was pretty innocuous."

On Wednesday, the two will presumably hash out their differences.

To make room for Kanye, Jimmy Kimmel Live! has scrapped the appearances of its previously announced guests for Wednesday's show: The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete stars Ethan Dizon and Skylan Brooks , and the British rock band Arctic Monkeys .  

Jimmy Kimmel Live! airs at 11:35 p.m. Eastern time on ABC.
