In support of the 2016 Grammys, Jimmy Kimmel launched Mean Tweets Music Edition #3 featuring musicians reading horrible tweets. Among the collection of artists reading the mean tweets are One Direction, Ed Sheeran, Drake, Common, Rita Ora, Josh Groban, Meghan Trainor, Ricky Martin, and James Taylor. Twitter users also found mean things to say about Little Big Town, Mumford & Sons, Kelly Clarkson, Charlie Wilson, Blake Shelton, Lionel Richie, The Killers, Demi Lovato, and Wiz Khalifa.
The latest video subjecting musicians to the harsh, unforgiving world of mean tweets follows in a long line of mean tweet reading courtesy of Jimmy Kimmel. Kimmel’s up to edition #9 of ‘Celebrities Read Mean Tweets’ and there’s even a video of President Obama reading tweets. NBA and NFL stars have also read aloud uncomplimentary tweets as have Country music stars. And Kimmel’s Mean Tweets segment has spawned spin-offs, with wrestlers, porn stars, and politicians getting in on the act through other media outlets.
