WATCH: YouTube stars read mean tweets on 'Kimmel'
MANILA, Philippines – We've watched our favorite celebrities and athletes read out mean tweets about themselves, but now, content creators take the spotlight on Jimmy Kimmel Live! to react to their social media haters.
Among the social media stars in the June 23 episode of Jimmy's show were Grace Helbig, Kingsley, Tyler Oakley, Smosh, and more.
Ian Hecox and Anthony Padilla of Smosh, who have been making videos since 2005 and currently have more than 22 million subscribers, read out, "[Smosh] is by far THE WORST YouTube channel out there!"
Later, Kingsley, known for his comedy and rants, was told by a Twitter user to shut up, because they were doing their homework.
"'Tryna do homework,' why the f-ck are you on Twitter?" replied Kingsley.
The most painful tweet though, and one that got the least laughs, was one to Anthony Michael Quintal, aka Lohanthony – the tweet attacked his mom. In response, Lohanthony said, "Why don't you say that to her face?" and brought his mom onscreen.
The video was introduced as "Mean Tweets: VidCon 2016," as from July 23 to 25, content creators gather in Anaheim, California for the annual convention.
"Mean Tweets" is a regular segment on Jimmy's show, which features popular artists and personalities reading out loud the hateful comments they get on social media. – Rappler.com
