Country Music Artists Share Some ‘Mean Tweets’ on Jimmy Kimmel Live
If you watched the CMAs a couple nights ago on ABC but changed the channel afterwards, you might have missed seeing this compilation of “Mean Tweets” sent to some of country music’s biggest names on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
I have to confess this was the first time I’ve ever actually watched the show and only did so when I heard some of the CMA winners would be featured that night after being blown away by the much-talked-about live performance by Chris Stapleton (who won Best New Artist, Best Album, and Male Vocalist of the Year) and Justin Timberlake.
Apparently these unbelievably “Mean Tweets” are a regular segment on the show; this one was the “Country Music Edition”. These people who send these tweets (and their Twitter handles are shared during the segment) sure get their knickers in a bunch over some of these celebrities and feel the urge to let them know just how they really feel about them or their music.
So, for those of you who missed it, we’re sharing them here for you to get a few chuckles at the absolutely brutal tweets these country music stars received.
Heads up: If you are offended by salty language (spoken or implied) you probably won’t want to watch this even though most those words were bleeped out.
The video was posted with the following description:
Country music has some of the most loyal, passionate and opinionated fans of any genre of music. Which means that people sometimes take to social media to express themselves. From time to time we shine a light on some of the not-so-nice things people write and we’re doing it again in this special country music edition of #MeanTweets.
People sure can be brutal with their comments; I’ve been on the tail end of some not-so-nice tweets and comments myself on some of my music videos. One comment I received on YouTube was something to the effect of “If Shania Twain were old, fat, ugly, and had no talent, you would be her.” I seriously “LOL’ed” and replied to this person by telling him (her?) that it was one of the more creative comments I’ve received.
You really do have to have thick skin and a good sense of humor when you put yourself out there for the public to hear and/or see!
