Celebrities including Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Hemsworth read out mean tweets about Jimmy Kimmel to celebrate his 50th birthday on Monday (13Nov17).
The talk show host celebrated the milestone on his show Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Monday and discovered that a number of stars had pre-recorded themselves reading out messages from Jimmy’s online haters in a special Jimmy Kimmel edition of his regular Mean Tweets segment.
Kim read out an old tweet from her husband Kanye West, who went on a Twitter rant at Jimmy in 2013 after he made a spoof about one of the rapper’s bizarre interviews.
“@kanyewest says ‘Jimmy Kimmel put yourself in my shoes… oh no that means you would have gotten too much good p**sy in your life.’ Fair point, Kanye,” she said with a straight face.
Jennifer, who interviewed Kim while serving as Jimmy’s guest host recently, read out: “$1 million says your hair is fake, your boobs are fake and your feet are small and your nose is made of Play-Doh.”
Chris joined in the sketch by reading out a tweet from a troll who wrote, “‘@jimmykimmel is a comedy god. Like a deformed, lame, hideous god, such as ancient Greece’s Hep…hep.. hepatitis?'” he said, struggling to pronounce Hephaestus. “‘But that ugly bozo is still a god.’ Jimmy, you don’t have hepatitis. I would know,” he added with a wink.
Other mean tweets were read out my Halle Berry, who said, “You are a jack*ass d*ck sucker” and Amy Schumer, who joked, “Jimmy Kimmel, you still look like a potato”, and Liam Neeson, who read a tweet which said Kimmel “looks like a slightly bloated Carson Daly.”
Other stars involved in the sketch included Kristen Bell, Michael Keaton, Will Ferrell, Jeff Bridges, David Letterman, and Ray Romano, who introduced the segment to Jimmy after making a surprise appearance.
Adam Sandler also came on as a surprise to present Jimmy with a Game of Thrones-inspired Iron Throne made out of party paraphernalia, George Clooney appeared in mock retrospective of Jimmy’s life, and James Taylor was an unexpected musical guest.
