Nick Cannon slammed Kanye West on Twitter late Wednesday for one of the rapper’s recent rants.

As Gossip Cop previously reported, West has been making a series of eyebrow-raising comments in recent weeks, and in one interview, cockily said it’s “factual” he’s a “creative genius,” and would even list it as his occupation on custom forms “except for two reasons: it takes too long to write and sometimes I spell the word genius wrong.”

Cannon, however, can think of another reason West should keep that title to himself.

“I love @KanyeWest like a brother & been one of his biggest fans & friends since day 1, but Genius is eternal patience,” tweeted the “America’s Got Talent” host.

Cannon went on, “@KanyeWest Real geniuses don’t have to tell everyone that they are a genius.”

He then added, “Maybe I should’ve just called him and told him that in private. Oops, my bad! Twitter-stream-of-consciousness LOL.”

“I just got online and saw all these @KanyeWest interviews and I was inspired to rant,” explained Cannon. “Oh well, going back to Thanksgiving. We cookin’ son!”

West has not responded — yet.
