One Direction, Drake, Demi Lovato + More Read ‘Mean Tweets’
The Internet’s sudden, meteoric rise has really opened the doors of communication between fan and celebrity, and with that comes unending criticism as well as unbridled hate, sometimes for the most benign reason, often lobbed without warning at any famous person with a Twitter account. But sometimes, the resulting tweets are funny, in all their over-the-top mean-spiritedness. Talk show host Jimmy Kimmel saw an opportunity for a segment somewhere within the practice of hitting celebs with rude, unprompted comments, and so "Mean Tweets" was born.
The segment sees a celebrity guest seated in front of a camera, where they then read off a mean tweet about themselves and react accordingly. This latest installment is geared only toward music artists and sees jabs at Kelly Clarkson, Demi Lovato, Little Big Town, Ricky Martin, Josh Groban and a slew of others.
