Simon Cowell and other celebs read out Twitter insults on video
WHILE Mary Beard boo-hoos about some people being tasteless and puerile about her, other famous people are taking online insults in their stride and turning it into laughter!
Jimmy Kimmel has been running a segment on his show, featuring celebrities reading out nasty tweets about themselves.
The latest skit stars Selena Gomez (girlfriend of Justin Bieber), Simon Cowell, Jessica Biel, Tenacious D and more! And it is brilliant!
In the video, Cowell is called a “dick”, while Tom Arnold gets decimated with a comment mentioning his sexual exploits and drug use. Bryan Cranston, from the wonderful Malcolm In The Middle, is told to “lose some weight Heisenberg”, and he responds by threatening the tweeter as his character.
It’s brilliant and funny and takes the venom out of the initial insult, meaning that the celebrities win a moral (and humour-filled) victory.
Take note, soft-arses.
