Kanye-Kimmel Feud: Hollywood Sounds Off, Mocks Ben Affleck Hashtag
Kanye West's rant against Jimmy Kimmel lit up Twitter Thursday night, with the rapper and late-night host trading barbs on social media before Kimmel addressed the feud during his talk show.
But West and Kimmel weren't the only stars tweeting about the dispute. Actors, musicians, writers, producers and other entertainment-industry insiders all took to Twitter to express their thoughts about the dust-up. Even Kimmel's wife, Molly McNearney, weighed in on Friday morning.

West's #nodisrespecttobenaffleck hashtag quickly became a source of parody. Keith Olbermann added it to a tweet promoting his ESPN2 show. And screenwriter and former Lost showrunner Damon Lindelof posted a series of tweets with the Affleck hashtag, only some of which referenced the Argo director and star.
Take a look at more of Hollywood's tweets about the feud.
