Is it rude to admit that we LIVE for Jimmy Kimmel’s ‘Mean Tweets’ segment? Hot on the heels of the epic CMA Awards, country artists sat down to read some of Twitter’s most vicious comments about the show’s performances. Watch the hilarious clip, here!
While WE thought the CMA Awards’ 50th Anniversary was absolutely amazing, some Twitter users appear to have a difference of opinion. In case you don’t know the deal behind “Mean Tweets,” it’s part of Jimmy Kimmel‘s late-night talkshow during which celebrities read aloud hateful comments about themselves — and it’s pretty freakin’ hilarious! Some artists take offense to the harshness, but most seem to laugh if off like good sports.

Once the CMA Awards wrapped on Nov. 2, the country kings and queens sat down with Jimmy to give their moment of “Mean Tweets” a go. Florida Georgia Line, Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town, Chris Stapleton and MORE were all made out to be targets. Poor Miranda was made fun of for having a large forehead…and she didn’t seem to take it so well. Little Big Town, however, handled the harsh criticism like champs as they all burst out laughing at the exact same time. And did you catch the moment when Dolly Parton was called a HOOKER?!
It’s a good thing CMA co-host Carrie Underwood wasn’t involved this year, seeing as she did such an incredible job bringing life and humor to the show! The blonde beauty opened the CMAs with A LOT of Donald Trump jokes and opinions about the 2016 Presidential Election, which were all well received by the crowd. The biggest highlight, perhaps, was when Taylor Swift showed up at the end to present an award of her own! Or, wait, was Beyonce‘s mashup with the Dixie Chicks the highlight? There are too many to choose from!
