If hearing Benedict Cumberbatch being compared to a cat’s anus and Jeff Bridges to a disturbed hobo sounds childish to you, or uncouth, Mean Tweets isn’t for you. Turn your monitor off.
Still here? Good, as you’ll be glad to know Jimmy Kimmel’s wry social media segment is back, once again asking the great and the good of Tinseltown to read out mean Tweets about themselves for our enjoyment, and theirs - a bit.
Set to the dreary tones of R.E.M’s Everybody Hurts, Cumberbatch, Bridges and even Kirsten Bell, who apparently has the Alcatraz of vaginas, proceed to read out some of the most mocking/spiteful critiques on their character in 140 characters or less. Needless to say the responses are as priceless as the messages.
Oh, and Cumberbatch’s response to his social media slanderer is one Sherlock would be proud of.
