Is the bit “Celebrities Reading Mean Tweets” getting stale and old? No. Not when you have the stunning Margot Robbie discussing how she “deserves a tongue punch in the fart box.” One of Jimmy Kimmel’s greatest skits is back and there are some really big A-listers in this edition of “CRMT.”
The latest chapter of “Mean Tweets” features big names such as Hugh Grant, Kate Hudson, Greg Kinnear, Melissa McCarthy, Chris Evans, Jane Lynch, Norman Reedus, Margot Robbie, Anthony Mackie, Judd Apatow, Olivia Wilde, Paul Rudd, Ryan Gosling, Zac Efron, Wanda Sykes, Russell Crowe, Bryan Cranston and Kiefer Sutherland. Make sure you stick around til for Bryan Cranston doing a superb impression of Matthew McConaughey morphing into Jim Carrey.
Somehow I never tire of pampered celebrities getting taken down 140 characters at a time by a 43-year-old part-time pizza delivery guy who has never accomplished anything in his life except memorized every line from “The Hobbit.” The inner troll in me appreciates the access to highfalutin celebs that Twitter gives jealous fucksticks. Back in ye olden days, if you were a troll you would have to write a letter and maybe it would be something like this:
“Dear Charlie Chaplin, your latest motion picture was a fribble of a calamity. You are an utter milksop. Anyone who enjoys your moving picture whatchamacallit is a real ninnyhammer. I stood up in the cinema and gave your performance the Bronx cheer.
P.S. Shave that ridiculous short mustache, you look like a complete nincompoop or a German dictator.”
Then you would have to buy a stamp, go to the post office, mail the letter, and hope that it made it to the famous person.
However, those fancy folks don’t open their own fan mail and had an assistant do so. Once they see it was hate mail, they would quickly dicard it. Twitter is so much easier.
