One late-night last fall, I was sitting around with Jimmy and Molly and we were all on our laptops reading Twitter. Jimmy and I started talking about the mean @ replies we get, it was something like…
“Why do people do this?”
“They’re always doing this”
“Mine are awful.”
“No, MINE are awful.”
We then launched into a competition of who had the WORST tweets tweeted at them that day, taking turns reading them out to each other. It actually made me feel a lot better to know that he’d also sit around and read the terrible shit people wrote to him, and the more terrible our @ replies got, the funnier they became. The brilliant comedy writer @mollymcnearney was instantly inspired to create a segment for JKL where celebrities read their worst @ replies.
Here is that segment.
It makes me very happy.
I’m sure it will make you feel happy.
Thanks Molly. (I know she didn’t do it for me, but whatever. Also? I love you Will Ferrell.)
