Jimmy Kimmel has a HIGHlarious portion of his show, which consists of celebrities reading mean tweets written about them (stars like Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Kristen Stewart, Katy Perry, etc.). Except most of the tweets…are actually written by the writers of the show. Sadface.
It looks like the first few segments he aired did indeed consist of mostly real tweets, but after that, the amount of ‘realness’ quickly decreased. The most recent episodes contain tweets that are all totally FAKED.
This is slightly sad, because it kind of ruins the entire point of the segment, but we will admit that it doesn’t stop the HIGHlarity!! Meaning that we will still watch celebrities reading mean things about themselves aloud even knowing it's all totes made up.
And hey, it’s not like those tweets couldn’t exist! As Jimmy points out, people tweet mean stuff about celebs ALL THE TIME.
Maybe it hurts the stars' feelings less to know that they’re reading a writer’s fictional work instead of a non-fan’s true feelings, ha!!
