For whatever reason, watching celebrities read mean tweets about themselves is really effing funny. Maybe it’s the absurdity of the Twitterverse and its insanely creative criticism. Maybe it’s the resilience the celebrities display as they react to tweeters’ cruel, bizarre insults. All I know is: Celebrity mean tweets never get old. And thanks to Jimmy Kimmel, the 10th installment of the hilarious series is finally here.
A few highlights from the new episode: “Why does Ryan Gosling always look like he’s trying to squeeze a fart out without it making any noise?”; “Paul Rudd is the most boring vanilla dude. You know he just sits at home with his wife having a bland spaghetti dinner talking about his day.”; and “Kate Hudson is a dead eyed trash bag that smells like low tide.” As always, the celebrities deflected the criticism masterfully. Melissa McCarthy thanked the person who called her the “Madea of white people.” Norman Reedus munched on an apple after a tweeter told him he could fit two fists and a leg in, ahem, a specific location. And Bryan Cranston did an impression of Jim Carrey impersonating Matthew McConaughey (inspired by a tweet that read, “Bryan Cranston looks like Jim Carrey impersonating Matthew McConaughey”—obviously).
Other celebs who took the hot seat include: Hugh Grant, Greg Kinnear, Chris Evans, Jane Lynch, Margot Robbie, Anthony Mackie, Judd Apatow, Olivia Wilde, Zac Efron, Wanda Sykes, Russell Crowe, and Kiefer Sutherland. Some were left speechless by the inventive insults, others laughed their way through the tweets, and some responded more hostilely (looking at you, Kiefer Sutherland).
All in all, it was another great episode of mean tweets. Nothing will ever top the time a tweeter told Drake he looked like a ferret (music edition 3, for those of you who are interested), but episode 10 was pretty solid. 10/10, if you will.
