Jimmy Kimmel Live” featured a special country music edition of “Mean Tweets” on Wednesday’s CMAs after-show.
Kimmel hosted a CMA Awards post-show on Wednesday for the second year in a row. While he filmed his show in Los Angeles as per usual, he appeared in Nashville via hologram. And in advance of the broadcast, he rounded up some of country’s biggest names to participate in his one of his funniest segments.
“Mean Tweets,” features celebrities reading some of the cruelest messages written about them on Twitter by strangers. The last installment aired in September with the likes of George Clooney and Halle Berry. This time around Luke Bryan, Brad Paisley, Little Big Town, Carrie Underwood, Kacey Musgraves, Tim McGraw, Willie Nelson, and many more country stars took part.
Bryan read a tweet from someone who wrote, “You ever gotten so drunk you said a Luke Bryan song actually wasn’t that bad?” And Brad Paisley read, “One time someone took a s**t, rubbed it all over a blank disc, put it into a CD player and out came the first Brad Paisley album.” Darius Rucker laughed off, “Some of my best friends are black but Darius Rucker sucks ass.”
Tim McGraw took in stride a mean tweet that said, “Tim McGraw’s new song is more embarrassing than your mom finding your penis pump.” Kacey Musgraves’ look was compared to a “house band at Chili’s.” And Willie Nelson read, “Marijuana works wonders. Just look at Willie Nelson. Bastard is still alive and won’t die.”
Rascal Flatts chuckled as they read, “Rascal Flatts please do us all a favor and stop making music. You are so awful #sobad #spareus ##soundsof death.” Florida Georgia Line also got tagged. And Sam Hunt had to read, “Sam Hunt is the male version of Taylor Swift… Except his songs suck…” Carrie Underwood was also insulted in a near unintelligible way. And Little Big Town had to read a tweet that said, “Little Big Town I would buy a ticket to one of your concerts just so I could punch each you in the face.”
