Football broadcasters read mean tweets on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!'

Posted on


Usually actors and musicians are the ones tapped for Jimmy Kimmel’s “Mean Tweets” segment on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, but the host switched it up Tuesday night for a College Football Playoff edition of the bit that featured college football coaches and broadcasters reading aloud some not-so-nice tweets about themselves.

ESPN college football analyst Lou Holtz, for example, found out that one tweeter thinks he looks like “a creepy ventriloquist puppet and sounds like Daffy Duck” (Holtz agrees) while another tweeter pointed out that reporter Heather Cox has a great porn star name. (This is old news to her.) Ah, Twitter: What a pleasant place.
