“Hey look. Ed Sheeran is still ugly”
When late night variety shows are all floating cloud-based interactive applications, when Fallon is long gone, when Miley Cyrus is hosting the Late Show, people will look back on Jimmy Kimmel’s Mean Tweets segments and recognise them somberly as the best thing that ever happened to late night television. Because nothing is funnier than seeing brutal tweets plucked from the congested swamp of Twitterland and read aloud by those ubercelebs the tweet was originally intended for. To see those nasty tweets meet their intended targets, despite all the odds. It’s a beautiful, beautiful thing.
All of Jimmy Kimmel Live’s Mean Tweets are available to stream on the show’s YouTube page.
