Celebrities read mean tweets

It’s One Direction’s turn to face the fire in the latest version of Jimmy Kimmel’s Celebs Read Mean Tweets. 

To celebrate The Grammy’s that took place yesterday, TV host Jimmy Kimmel released a special music edition of Celebrities Read Mean Tweets. 

Who on earth would write mean tweets about Ed Sheeran? What did he ever do to you. 

In the wake of a jam-packed Grammy awards, Meghan Trainor, Ed Sheeran, Kelly Clarkson, Blake Shelton, Demi Lovato, Drake, One Direction, Lionel Richie and Mumford and Sons all coped some online abuse. 

Guys, don’t write mean tweets to people. 

If there’s one thing this skit teaches us it’s that celebrities are people too and bullying anyone on social media is generally crappy behaviour and will make you look like an idiot.  

Speaking of mean tweets last week Kanye West launched a Twitter attack against Taylor Swift

In Kanye’s new song Famous he suggests that he made Taylor famous and implies a crude way in which she can thank him. 

The lyric goes…

“For all my Southside n—gas who will know me best. I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex. Why, I made that b***h famous, God damn… I made that b***h famous.” 

Kanye, obviously bothered by the negative reaction his song had, launched a Twitter onslaught clamming that Famous was never meant as a diss and is actually endearing. Kanye even suggested that the lyrics were her idea.

“I did not diss Taylor Swift and I’ve never dissed her…I’m not even going to take credit for the idea… It’s actually something Taylor came up with. She was having dinner with one of our friends who’s name I will keep out of this and she told him, I can’t be mad at Kanye because he made me famous!” 

Yesterday at the Grammy’s, Tay Tay finally spoke for herself. During her Album of the Year acceptance speech, the queen of the #girlsquad gave ‘Ye the classiest shut down we’ve seen in a while.
