Watch Celebrities Read Mean Tweets About Themselves



Last night, “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” aired the latest entry in their ongoing video series, “Celebrities Read Mean Tweets,” wherein visiting talent are asked to read aloud some not-so-nice statements that have been posted about them on social media. The end result is both hilarious and eye-opening and you can check it out in the player below.

“People are very quick to tweet unflattering things,” the video’s official description offers by way of a thesis, “but it’s important to remember that everyone has feelings.”

Indeed, while it’s quite amusing to see how the various celebrities react to the mean-spirited jabs, the overall takeaway is a healthy reminder to think before you post.

The eighth in an ongoing series, this video features stars Gwyneth Paltrow, Lena Dunham, Gerard Butler, Ty Burrell, Bob Newhart, Britney Spears, Geena Davis, Chris Pratt, Chloe Grace Moretz, Scott Foley, Michael Chiklis, Ted Danson, John Stamos, Lisa Kudrow and Adam Sandler.
