Pink, Adam Levine Among Victims Of ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ Mean Tweets

Being a celebrity is complicated. On one hand, you are revered across continents by total strangers. On the other hand, you are detested across continents by total strangers.

Adam Levine and Pink were called upon by Jimmy Kimmel Tuesday evening to contend with the latter.

The pop stars both took part in the host’s “Mean Tweets” series, in which celebrities read mean tweets about themselves in front of the “Jimmy Kimmel Live” studio audience.

“Pink makes music for obnoxious white bridal parties that drunkenly enter a Denny’s and ruin everyone’s evening,” Pink read, laughing. “I would have said Waffle House, but okay.”

Adam Levine’s mean tweet was either more or less self-esteem shattering, depending on the kind of person you are.

“Adam Levine is if a flaccid penis could kinda sing,” Adam Levine read, adding, “Bro, this is riddled with mistakes.”

What would we do without Jimmy Kimmel keeping our beloved American celebrities humble?

Watch the whole thing below to see what strangers on the Internet have to say about TLC, Ludacris, and Nick Jonas.
