Celebrities Read Nasty Tweets Directed At Them (VIDEO)
Twitter users are notorious for letting lose and tweeting somewhat inappropriate and just plain mean tweets when they talk about celebrities, and Jimmy Kimmel is all too aware of such actions. So he decided to show people what these tweets sound like by having celebrities read tweets directed at them during a special segment on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Tuesday. Here are some of the actual tweets read by the celebrities which they mentioned, including Danny McBride, James Van Der Beek, Katy Perry, Zooey Deschanel, Kristen Stewart and Justin Bieber.
Here’s one of the actual tweets.

Worth noting: @The_McCabe, who posted the comment about Perry, was receiving death threats and was heckled by some of Perry’s more passionate fans. He seemed to be a good sport about the whole situation, and even changed his Twitter avatar to a screenshot of Perry reading his tweet.
So @katyperry Hopefully that will stop the death threats ;-D wouldn’t want an army of screaming women with blue hair attacking me x
