WATCH: ‘Jimmy Kimmel’ Mean Tweets Music Edition Puts Pink, Blink-182 On Blast
Nick Jonas, Adam Levine, and Alice Cooper are among the musicians who were burned by random internet users in the new edition of "Mean Tweets."
"Mean Tweets," for those who have been living under a rock for the past few years, is the viral segment on Jimmy Kimmel Live. The idea was to invite celebrities to read "mean tweets" in front of the camera.
The result is pretty funny; sometimes the celebrity has an equally harsh retort for the anonymous sender of the tweet. In any case, it is fun to watch how these actors and musicians would react to hate messages.
Mean Tweets: Music Edition
For this week's "Mean Tweets," Kimmel invited Nick Jonas, Usher, P!nk, Alice Cooper, The Lumineers, Common, Blink-182, Steve Aoki, TLC, Fall Out Boy, Zendaya, Ludacris, Adam Levine of Maroon 5, Niall Horan, Erykah Badu, Meghan Trainor, Depeche Mode, and Green Day to read hate messages from random people on Twitter.
The youngest Jonas brother, Nick, was the first to face the camera and confront his haters.
"Nick Jonas was cute back when he was in the Jonas Brothers," the 25-year-old reads, "and now he looks like a ferrit."
The "Jealous" singer took the comment in stride and laughed probably at the fact that @starhollows cannot even spell the word "ferret."
The tweets were pretty creative and even made their targets like Blink-182 and Steve Aoki laugh out loud. Even Fall Out Boy have to admit that being called the Comic Sans of music is pretty darn hilarious.
Arguably the funniest bit of the viral video is the hate tweet directed at Green Day and the rock band's equally hilarious response.
"I left more talent in my toilet this morning than Green Day ever had," the tweet reads. "Green Day sucks d***."
"I'm glad that you're thinking about us while you're taking dumps. We're doing something right," said the band's drummer Tre Cool. Billy Joe Armstrong added, "we'll think about you while we're sucking d****."

The segment comes a few days after Kimmel hosted the 2018 Academy Awards. On Sunday, March 4, the daytime show host led Hollywood in celebrating the biggest and best movies of 2017.

U.S. President Donald Trump mocked the telecast's low ratings, saying that there are no real stars anymore.
Kimmel responded by saying that Trump is the lowest-rated president ever.
