Mean Tweets Music Edition #2 featuring Donald Glover, Sam Smith, Ariana Grande, Jessie J, Britney Spears, and more
Adam Rifkin stashed this in Mean Tweets
What makes these continue to be compelling is the celebrities' reactions.
In most cases though, the celebrities in question steeled themselves for the hurt, and instead of fighting back, wound up maybe not so much agreeing with their online aggressors, but at least accepting some possible truths. “Community” actor Donald Glover, in the guise of his rapper stage name, for instance, could only respond “That’s fair” to one tweeter’s observation that “Childish Gambino looks like he tried to suck his own d— a few times.”
“Stay With Me” singer Sam Smith commended his detractor with a polite, quintessentially British “Well done” after the person in question tweeted: “Trying to use the word ‘hate’ less often. Here goes: I thoroughly dislike Sam Smith.”
But pop starlet Ariana Grande was the paradigm of taking her harsh critics in stride, laughing so hard she could barely utter her deeply insulting Mean Tweet out loud: “I’d rather listen to an auto-tuned queef played on a continuous loop than listen to Ariana Grande’s new album.”
