Sometimes people forget that celebrities have feelings like the rest of us. So much so, that people will even go out of their way to tweet mean things towards them.
Luckily enough, many celebrities are able to take insults with a grain of salt. In fact, they’ll even play along like the good sports they are!
My personal fave here is Ray Romano. Don’t ever insult a comedian, because he/she will DEFINITELY have something smart to say back.
For many celebrities, Twitter is a place where they can connect with their fan base. But some Twitter users take it as an opportunity to post hateful comments. In his third video from his ” Celebrities read mean tweets” series, Jimmy Kimmel wants everyone out there to know that celebrities do read your nasty twitter comments, and news flash, they take offence to them to.
Much like his last video featuring Justin Bieber, Kristen Stewart and Katy Perry, Kimmel’s latest 2 and half minute video features Selena Gomez, Hayden Panettiere, and Anderson Cooper react to tweets like, “@selenagomez is on the radio right now. Is there a volume lower than mute?” and ” I’m not being mean but why does @andersoncooper remind me of dinosaurs?!?!?”
I don’t know about you, but if you find it necessary to sit behind a computer screen and dish out hateful comments, than maybe you should include your real name in the post, too!

For all those people who fervently believe celebrities are in fact robots who don’t have any feelings, Jimmy Kimmel has a message for you. Pull up your pants, do some serious self reflection and STOP bullying people on Twitter. In fact, many celebrities do read your mean tweets and are hurt by them. If you insist on trolling because it’s in your genes or something, then at least use your real name.
Over the past little while, Kimmel has been rounding up celebrities like Justin Bieber, Kristen Stewart, Snooki, Katy Perry and Zooey Deschanel, to read some of the mean tweets they received from the Twitterverse. Apparently Stewart was better as a boy and Snooki has a vagina as big as an ocean (unnecessary rumor control: neither of these are true).
Ultimately, I think it’s a good idea that Twitter and YouTube are encouraging people to buck up and use their real names so they can clean up the discourse. Here’s the test: if you wouldn’t post a comment with your real name, then it’s best no to post it at all!
