Jimmy Kimmel Live: Matthew McConaughey, Sofia Vergara, Julia Roberts read mean tweets


Once again, the sheer awfulness of humanity of Twitter took center stage on Jimmy Kimmel Live. The late night host’s running gig Celebrities Read Mean Tweets was as usual a hit last night. Don’t believe me? See for yourself.

Let’s start with the tweeters. It’s interesting to me how many people use Twitter like a dirty Facebook. The thoughts spewing from their crookedly typing fingers aren’t any less dumb than what they post on Facebook. It all just comes with that special spice of vehement contempt for anyone making more money than said tweeters. This time, the celebrities ranged from Julia Roberts to Game of Thrones’ Kit Harrington.

I’m also struck by the weird observations people make. One of my favorite quotes from the video: Emma Stone looks like she smells like cat piss. I don’t know why, but that one cracks me up. At least, in that case, some tweeter actually combined legit humor with their venom. Maybe that should be a new rule. If you’re going to randomly bash someone for weird, intangible things, at least make it funny for the rest of us.
