"Mean Tweets" remains one of the meanest, most hilarious segments on any late night talk show. (Though, Kimmel's annual Halloween candy prank outranks it in terms of outright cruelty.) Forcing people to read out mean things people have said about them is harsh.
On Wednesday's show, Kimmel brought the segment back for a special CMA Awards edition. The country music award show took place Wednesday night as well, so, in a single day, country music fans saw their favorites at their highest and their lowest. The Zac Brown Band is up for awards and had to read a tweet that says, "The Zac Brown Band is on three radio stations at the same time......... As you can imagine this is the worst day of my life."
The segment features mean tweets about Blake Shelton, Old Dominion, Trace Adkins, Cassadee Pope, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, and many others.
