Twitter is one of the most used social media of today. This social media platform lets you say (tweet) something from your profile. You can say whatever you want; to whoever you choose any time of the day.
And our country artists are the latest victim (guests) to the Jimmy Kimmel Live where his guests will have to read mean tweets that are sent to them. Let us take a look.
Jimmy Kimmel Live is known for guesting celebrities and making them read hilarious mean tweets to their guests. This time, it would be the country artists across the generations who will have to read the tweets.
Our country legend, Dolly Parton, had her fair share. Someone tweeted to her saying,
“It’s not a hooker convention; it’s a Dolly Parton concert.”
But the singer has a witty comeback:
“I guess I should feel hurt but I don’t coz I pattern my look after a hooker.”
Some country artists were also featured like Jake Owen, Little Big Town, Chris Stapleton, Trace Adkins, Miranda Lambert, and even the legendary Willie Nelson.
Most of the other mean tweets consist of how the artists look. Some tweets are not that serious and would just want to poke fun at the artist. Most of the contemporary artists received tweets that are saying they aren’t country enough.
Country Artists’ Reaction
Receiving online hate sure is not fun especially if it is directed to your craft. But of course, these kinds of things should not be taken seriously all the time. And so, most of the artists mentioned above only laughed when they read the tweets, with some exceptions like Dolly (as was mentioned above) and Cassadee Pope. These brave women did not hold back. For Cassadee, someone tweeted to her that she would be a lot more beautiful without her tattoo in which her response was just a middle finger.
Social Media Etiquette
With the rise of social media, you can’t possibly control the opinion of people. Someone will like you and someone will hate you. What you can control is your reaction and we can admire what these artists did because they either just laughed about it, or they defended themselves. Both are right in their own ways.
But at the end of the day, these hilarious mean tweets should not bother you. When people say negative things about you online, the best way to handle it is to just ignore and move on, especially that some of the tweets don’t make sense and are just clearly done out of boredom.
Kudos to these country artists for not taking the mean tweets seriously.
