Jimmy Kimmel unleashed another round of his “Mean Tweets” segment featuring movie stars and pop acts reciting insulting tweets written about them. Occasionally this sketch still has fresh moments and surprising reactions. More often it gives us celebrities pretending to make fun of themselves as they read benign or asinine tweets that no one would ever care about. In the past, many of these tweets have turned out to be fake, which renders the whole routine pretty pointless. But does the newest batch of mean tweets pass the smell test?
For the most part, yes. It appears the show's producers have heeded the call for authenticity since most of these tweets are legit. Here are almost 100% of the tweets featured in last night's segment.
Would you rather: listen to josh groban OR have diarhea ladled into your ear? Hard choice, amirite?

The tweets about Psy and 5 Seconds of Summer have both been deleted, but evidence of their existence is searchable. The Lady Gaga tweet also checks out. The only suspicious tweet in the mix is the one about Donald Glover, a.k.a. Childish Gambino. The tweet isn't locatable, and frankly, if you were writing a tweet about Donald Glover, wouldn't you just call him Donald Glover? My theory is that Glover or Kimmel wanted a tweet that only mentioned his rapper name, which is probably pretty hard to come by. This is a “music edition,” after all.
But let's make sure we stick to the real criticism here: Most of these tweets are OK at best. It's not hard to find the truly funny, witty jokes on Twitter. Here's hoping we get more of that soon and less of the “You're ugly” variety.
