After watching this video, you may want to rethink your policy on tweeting mean things about celebrities.
Last night, Jimmy Kimmel Live ran a clip starring so many famous faces it'll blow your head up — Julia Roberts, Emma Stone, Ashton Kutcher, Matthew McConaughey and way, way more. Each celebrity was there to read one of the Internet's meanest tweets, but about themselves. The results are, as you might expect, hilarious and slightly affecting.
Did you watch? Do you expect me to start preaching about those shiny people now? Do you expect me to tell you to stop mean tweeting, because you might hurt poor Emma Stone's feelings? Well, I'm not going to do that. In practical terms, of course celebrities are real people with real feelings. And if you're friends with one or you see one on the street, you should be humane. But realistically, the chances of a random celebrity actually seeing your vile tweet is close to negative. You don't have to consider their feelings in the slightest. BUT, that still doesn't mean you should go swinging your bitchiness around like some sort of Karl Lagerfeld.
What do people get out of being cruel on the Internet? Most of this vile commentary sounds like it's coming from some weird, angry place. Personally, I think we would all be far better served using that excess energy to figure out how to solve our own problems, instead of lashing out at beautiful famous people who don't give two shits about what's happening in our lives. Eff them. Your hatred fuels their fame. If you're tired of looking at someone's stupid face, then stop paying attention to it — and start paying attention to yourself.
