As West remained silent, Kimmel took the show to a commercial.
The rapper has now disputed the claims that he was left "stumped" by Kimmel's question and said he was not given a chance to answer it.
"On Jimmy Kimmel we had a great time having a dialogue. I'm reading that I was stumped by a question. Let me clarify the click bait. I wasn't stumped. I wasn't given a chance to answer the question," he wrote.
"The question was so important I took time to think. And then I was hit with the let's go to commercial break. That interview showed strong personalities with different opinions having a civil conversation," he added.
West confirmed that there was no ill feeling about the incident.
"I was so happy when I saw Jimmy walk out in the Yeezys. That was an olive branch. He lead with love. I appreciate Jimmy and his team. You guys are Jedi's. Much love," he wrote.
