Celebrities reading mean tweets about themselves is the funniest thing you’ll watch today

Celebrities Read Mean Tweets

Love him or hate him, there’s no denying that Jimmy Kimmel has some pretty funny segments on his late-night show, Jimmy Kimmel Live. Among them, “Celebrities Read Mean Tweets” has to be our favorite. In this recurring segment, Kimmel invites celebrity guests to sit down in front of the camera and read various mean things that have been posted to Twitter. Of course, the subject of each mean tweet is always the celebrity who is reading it.

The results are invariably hilarious, and Kimmel recently aired the ninth installment of his “Celebrities Read Mean Tweets” series on his show.
