On a recent episode of “Jimmy Kimmel Live” celebrities appeared on the eighth installment of “Celebrities Read Mean Tweets.”

Britney Spears was one of the celebrities that reads a mean tweet about herself, as well as Ty Burrell, John Stamos, Chris Pratt, Gwyneth Paltrow and others.

Unfortunately some people are cruel and write mean things to celebrities on Twitter. Jimmy regularly shows “Celebrities Read Mean Tweets” to raise awareness, and hopefully make people think twice before they post something mean, since nasty tweets can cause pain and be very upsetting.

Hopefully someday people will stop writing such cruel things on twitter, but until that day it is nice to see the celebrities make fun of it!

Watch the video below and see how celebrities take such cruel mean posts and laugh at them!
