Jimmy Kimmel Drops 7th Edition Of Mean Tweets
By Mick Joest 12 months ago
Mean Tweets is back and better than ever. Then again, that should be obvious. If it were worse than ever, would they really have gone on with the seventh installment? Lots of celebrities across the board contribute with some of the nastiest tweets read yet, and some of the best responses. Some of the tweets are unfair, and others, well, I can see where the tweeter was coming from.
I’m sure Don Cheadle is a fantastic man in real life. He stepped up in a big way when Terrence Howard didn’t return to Iron Man and he’s fantastic in about every other role he’s done throughout his career, but let’s be real here. Don, that hat does make it seem like you are wack as fuck. Hat selection can reveal a lot about a man and looking at yours leads me to believe that it wasn’t the first bad decision you made that day. I tried to picture you in a ball cap just now and that didn’t work either. Maybe you can be that guy who chooses not to wear hats? I’m not saying you have to but if you did maybe it would reduce the wack vibe you’re giving off.
I understand the want of celebrities to lash back at people who say mean things on Twitter, but in some ways I think these segments encourage people to say more mean things. I’m not the biggest fan of Katie Cassidy but I don’t go on and on about how she ruins the pace of Arrow...okay I do but I call her Laurel. You know what? I’m going at this all wrong, because it’s ridiculously fun to tease celebrities, so let me hit it at another angle.
Kevin Smith taught me a valuable lesson early on in my radio career. “Never fuck with the man with the microphone.”
You can poke the sleeping lion as much as you want, and it might continue to sleep, or just ignore you. Eventually it’s going to wake up and when it does look out. Celebrities are the lions with legions of fans, recognition, and tools at their disposal to all out wreck you if they wanted to. Granted most of these celebrities don’t do that because they’re nice, and because the media will make a scene of it. So be a bit nicer to celebrities and I promise I will not harass Katie Cassidy until Arrow season three premieres.
