Jimmy Kimmel Live! has an awesome segment called ‘Celebrities Read Mean Tweets’ and it’s a real pleasure to watch how stars react to angry posts and troll comments. Some of their comebacks are amazing. The reactions of others are priceless as well. And once in a while, you see genuine surprise that there are people out there who don’t like stars!

Scroll down, upvote your fave mean tweets, and share this post with your pals if you think they’ll enjoy a good laugh or two. Just remember, this is no reason to start bullying celebs or spreading hate.

When you’re done with this post and if you find yourself wanting more, you can find Bored Panda’s previous articles about celebrities reading mean tweets about themselves on Jimmy Kimmel’s show here, here, here, as well as here.




No matter how much love you might get as a celebrity, there will always, always be at least a handful of people out there who dislike you or even hate you. The moral of the story is that you can’t be loved by everyone. So if you’re worried about someone disliking you, just remember that right now, there are hundreds, thousands of trolls hunched over their keyboards, bashing out mean comments about your favorite actors, singers, dancers, and other celebs.




Twitter user JayBird told Bored Panda their opinion about why Jimmy Kimmel’s show segment about celebrities reading mean tweets is so popular. According to JayBird, the segment’s popularity most likely stems from a desire to laugh and thus “turn the negativity away from you and back to the insulter.” In other words, people want to get rid of stress, anxiety, and other negative feelings, and laughter is perfect for that.

JayBird mused that the reason why some people send out mean or hateful tweets to celebrities is because they want fame themselves, so they try to get as close as they can to celebrities. Even if that’s achieved through something negative like insulting stars.

What’s more, JayBird said that the perfect way to deal with mean tweets is exactly what celebs do on the Jimmy Kimmel show: laugh at them and show everyone that the tweets don’t affect them in any way at all.




There are bad ways to deal with haters like getting into internet catfights with them, breaking down in tears, or screaming at passers-by.

And then there are awesome ways to react and feel like a pro. For example, the author of the legendary Harry Potter books J.K.Rowling once used her name in a punny reply to a critic, saying “They see me Rowlin’, They hatin.’” I think that many of us would absolutely love to use our last names as puns. But not all of us are as lucky as Rowling. Or we need a tad more imagination.

But this doesn’t answer the question of why online trolls target celebrities in the first place. Wouldn’t it be better to vent your rage at the gym instead?

According to presenter Rachel Riley, trolls are all “exactly the same” and are after “publicity.” She explained that, in her opinion, trolls target public figures to get more followers. While some of them, who have political ambitions, want to get more people to support their hateful ideologies.

(CNN)Rapper Shawty Lo, known for his song “Dey Know” and an abandoned reality TV show about the mothers of his 11 children, died Wednesday after a car crash in Atlanta, his manager told a local radio station.

He was 40 years old.
    The Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed his death to CNN. The official cause of death is pending.
    Born Carlos Walker, the Jonesbridge, Georgia, native was a founding member of the group D4L, whose song “Laffy Taffy” peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard 100 chart in 2006.
    The song made it into the Guinness Book of World Records in 2007 as the most downloaded song. It was one of the biggest hits in the hip hop sub-genre known as “snap” music.
    In a 2015 interview with radio station Streetz 103.3, Walker said he was in prison at the time his group was enjoying its chart success.
    “I was facing 20 to 40 years on three different cases,” he said. “I got a year on each case and all of them got ran concurrent. I came home to my group heating up to ‘Laffy Taffy’ in the streets.”
    Walker said during the interview that he was dealing drugs at the time and invested his money in his music. His grandmother’s death when Walker was 17 left him on his own and he turned to the streets.
    “When I was at the end of the dope game, that’s when I became about the music because this was the only thing that was going to keep me living the lifestyle that I’m living,” Walker said.
    In 2008 he released a solo single, “Dey Know,” which helped him win the “Rookie of the Year” award at the BET Hip Hop Awards the same year.
    The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that the car crash involved a white Audi that “went over a guardrail, hit two trees and burst into flames.” Two women in the car were taken to a hospital, the newspaper said.
    Hours before the crash, photos posted on Walker’s verified Instagram page showed him partying at a local strip club.
    Known as the “King of Bankhead” (though that title led to a dispute as many fans believe that fellow rapper and Bankhead neighbor T.I. held that title) for his affiliation and love for the Atlanta neighborhood, Walker was embraced by the industry.
    He was mourned by several high-profile rappers, including Wu Tang Clan member Raekwon the Chef, who tweeted about Walker’s death.
    Walker was almost a reality star.
    In 2013, Oxygen planned to premier “All My Babies’ Mamas,” a show about Walker’s life as a rapper with 11 children by 10 women. The ensuing controversy about building a series around the stereotype of black unwed mothers and absentee fathers led to the show being canceled before it was broadcast.
    But Walker expressed pride in his nine daughters and two sons during the 2015 interview.
    “What people don’t know is I had all my kids before I was a rapper,” he said.
