Can you believe this is the 12th edition of Mean Tweets already? I can’t believe we’ve already reached the 11th edition — it seems like just yesterday we were introduced to this classic bit of late night television. Thankfully, it’s still as funny as ever, and last night’s segment was chock-full of top-notch burns
For Jimmy Kimmel’s 50th birthday, Jimmy Kimmel Live rounded up almost every person in Hollywood to read Mean Tweets about Kimmel himself.
As for Kimmel, he may be low-key the best late night talk show host. Fallon is an ass kissing teacher’s pet, Colbert gets too political, and Conan is essentially alien.
Kimmel, on the other hand, is outright funny, rude, and he thinks outside the box. These factors led to the creation of his uber-viral segment “Mean Tweets”, where celebrities and athletes read supposedly real mean tweets about themselves (even though everyone knows the tweets are written by Kimmel’s writing staff).
The rest of the episode itself is hilarious, so check that out below:
