    Kanye West does not appreciate comedian Jay Pharoah of SNL doing an impression of him.

    Pharoah has aped Yeezy multiple times on the show, along with Yeezy's wife Kim Kardashian, and he also did his 'Ye impression at the 2014 VMAs last month, with Kardashian in the crowd. Or "krowd."

    While performing at the Made in America festival in Philly this past Labor Day weekend, West admitted that he reached out to the comedian. "I called Jay Pharoah right after the MTV Awards. I said, 'I appreciate your show, but let me tell you about my story. Let me tell you about what I went through to get to that position...' So we ain't gonna have no black comedians going onstage spoofing the people that's working hard, and helping the next man out," West said.

    Is Kanye West being too sensitive about Jay Pharoah's jokes?
