"Let me clarify the click bait", the rapper tweeted on Saturday. Kimmel asks him "Whether we like his personality or not, his actions are really what matter". Kimmel threw to commercial break, and the rapper never ended up answering the question.
He added: "The question was so important I took time to think".
The move created a bit of a media storm, and Kanye has since taken to social media to claim he was simply not given enough time to answer, and needed more time to think.

West tilted his head to think, said nothing and the show then went to break. "I got four of them" (at press time, even the analysts at the lyric site Genius hadn't touched that one yet). And that's when you get these comments that just shoot out, nearly like Tourette's'.
