Chris Evans joined a stacked lineup of famous faces for the latest installment of “Mean Tweets” on Wednesday night’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live.
Following in the footsteps of Meghan Trainor and Mitt Romney, the Massachusetts movie star read an insulting post about himself from a disgruntled user on Twitter. Surprisingly, the message was pretty tame, well, at least when you compare it to all the insane stuff “Pharma Bro” Martin Shkreli has recently tweeted at Captain America.
Always a good sport, Evans couldn’t control his laughter while reading the tweet.
“Chris Evans is a stupid bearded sweater wearing dumb dork,” the post read.
Evans wasn’t alone in getting roasted as a few of his Avengers pals and a host of other stars received a turn in front of the camera. Although some of the tweets bordered on the NSFW variety, a few gems captured that third grade level comedy magic we all know and love.
The lineup of celebrities included Hugh Grant, Kate Hudson, Greg Kinnear, Melissa McCarthy, Jane Lynch, Norman Reedus, Margot Robbie, Anthony Mackie, Judd Apatow, Olivia Wilde, Paul Rudd, Ryan Gosling, Zac Efron, Wanda Sykes, Russell Crowe, Bryan Cranston, and Kiefer Sutherland.
