'Kids Read Mean Tweets' was created by the Canadian Safe School Network in order to relay the effect cyber bullying has on teens. Created similarly to that of the infamous Celebrities Reading Mean Tweets on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live,' students read hurtful tweets about themselves from their peers. Although the segment on Jimmy Kimmel pokes fun more at the tweets themselves this PSA shows not everyone receives the tweets in the same way.

The video has exploded on YouTube gaining 1,000,000+ views in little over a weekend. Kids Read Mean Tweets is an amazing PSA that helps bridge the gap between Hollywood's idea of comedy to the real world. Cyber bullying is becoming increasingly popular among teens as social media becomes more integrated into our lives.
