Mean Tweets

Jimmy Kimmel celebrates the Grammys with musicians reading mean tweets

Monday night was the Grammys, so Jimmy Kimmel unleashed his third music-themed "Mean Tweets." They are as delightful as always, with the artists responding to the impolite, often vulgar 140-character insults with some combination of shock, anger, and laughter. This batch of musicians includes several Grammy big winners — Ed Sheeran, Meghan Trainor — and plenty of other big-name musicians. So let the music from REM's "Everybody Hurts" set the stage as James Taylor looks confused, Little Big Town gets indignant, Charlie Wilson get mad, One Direction nod their heads, and Mumford and Sons laugh heartily.
