Mitt Romney Reads Mean Tweets Live On ‘Kimmel,’ Including A Few From Donald Trump

Jimmy Kimmel and his Mean Tweets series have shone a bitter light on the small corner of the internet that creates a large amount of abuse for celebrities. Yes, Twitter. We know Twitter can be a rough and tumble place for people in the public eye, but we also know it’s a necessary evil for most of them. Being active on social media can be scary sometimes, no matter who you are. Anyone can reach out to you and call you a jerk, or explain how much you suck in 140 characters or less. It’s these concise put downs that sting the worst. A proper word economy makes a dis hurt that much more.

For his infinitely entertaining Mean Tweets series, Kimmel has had everyone from John Cena to President Obama read haters and their remarks on Jimmy Kimmel Live. No matter who the recipient of the mean tweets are, it humanizes and usually makes us feel bad for them. (It’s actually pretty impressive).
