Famous people: love to hate them, love to love them, really love to bash them on social media. But our anonymous online meanness comes at a price: it makes our favorite (and not-so-favorite) stars sad. Which is why Jimmy Kimmel Live has attempted to show us just how hurtful our nasty tweets can be. Kimmel’s popular Celebrities Read Mean Tweets series features the biggest stars reading mean tweets about themselves.
Whether it’s a disgruntled tweeter telling Chris Pratt to f*ck off or someone comparing Larry King to a goblin, the general public can be a malicious, cruel group. Sometimes the celebs deserve it (ahem, Simon Cowell and Justin Bieber); sometimes they don’t (Amy Poehler can do no wrong!). And the hate doesn’t stop with actors and actresses. NFL, NBA, and music stars get bombarded with rude tweets every day, too. But let’s face it: watching them read mean tweets aloud is pretty hilarious.
Spend some time watching all of the celebrities reading mean tweets in a row, or skip around to find the best of the worst. Here they are, all in one place.
