Twitter is famously a forum where you can say just about anything about just about anyone without any consequences. You can blast your mouth off, say terrible, terrible things for no good reason about people you’ve never met and sometimes even get away with threatening people.
Of course, the people getting trashed talked the most on the social network are celebrities. People just love to say horrible things about singers and actors, and last night on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” the host had multiple stars read and react to hateful tweets about themselves.
Justin Bieber, Zooey Deschanel, Kristen Stewart, Katy Perry and Snooki are among those who get a lion’s share of vitriol tossed their way through social media, mostly because they just aren’t some people’s cup of tea. But if Twitter has taught us one thing, it’s that every individual is entitled to share their self-important, hyperbolic opinion with as many people as possible because the things they have to say are extremely valid and worthwhile …. like, “I would rather chop my arm off and f**k myself with my detached limb than watch ’Katie [sic] Perry the movie.’ What the f**k is wrong with the world.” We’re really glad someone shared that.
Perry seems to be too. “I’d pay to see that,” she says in response to the tweet. Bieber, Stewart, Deschanel, Snooki and more all get in on the act as well, in a funny clip that will hopefully make people realize their thoughtless words can make them the subject of ridicule too.
These stars have a much better sense of humor about their haters than we think we could muster!
