God exists and he has a sense of humor. Or at least the god of technology does. On Jimmy Kimmel Live yesterday, YouTube, TV and Twitter converged in a fabulous segment called Mean Tweets. Throw in some love-to-hate-them celebrities, and hilarity ensued.
Apparently, Mean Tweets is where Jimmy Kimmel sits celebrities down in front of a potted plant and has them read particularly, well, mean tweets that someone has posted about them. Ostensibly the message is to consider that celebrities are people with feelings, too. Really the message is that the more a celebrity can laugh at himself, the more likable he becomes.
To the Shmooze’s delight, Matisyahu was featured in yesterday’s segment, bringing this priceless series to our attention.
