It is very common for people to write on Twitter that they think Zooey Deschanel is overrated or Matt LeBlanc is old, but the Jimmy Kimmel Live ‘Mean Tweets’ video shows celebrities’ reaction to these nasty comments. The digital age has allowed for stars to have direct access to heinous criticisms made by the average person via the Internet. This has lead to the social media-savvy late night talkshow host Jimmy Kimmel to grab some big name celebs and have them read some of the rudest anonymous tweets about themselves.
The video resonates on two levels. The first is showing just how mean the online community can be, with tweets such as, “Did you know that if you skinned Larry King & ironed out his leather, you could make enough coats to give 1 to every poor child in America?” Secondly, the highly hilarious and clearly dramatized reactions of celebrities show that they in fact can take a joke.

Some of the celebrities featured in the Jimmy Kimmel Live ‘Mean Tweets’ video are: Kristen Stewart, Danny McBride, James Van Der Beek, Katy Perry, and one of the most bashed stars online Justin Bieber. Stats for Celebs Reading Rude Responses Trending: Older & Chilly
