UPDATED with full video: “Bonnie Raitt looks like the aunt who would have a few too many at your mom’s birthday party and try to fight your dad,” Raitt read last night during the Mean Tweets segment of Jimmy Kimmel Live that immediately followed ABC’s broadcast of the 50th Annual CMA Awards. JKL broadcast live from Hollywood and via hologram from the CMA Theater at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville.
This year’s crop of country mean tweets ranked high on the potty-mouth-meter. Among the printable tweets:
– In case of a national emergency, all air traffic will be redirected to Miranda Lambert’s forehead.
– It’s not a hooker convention, it’s a Dolly Parton concert. (Which isn’t even original, Parton having for years said she was going for that look, as she pointed out after reading that mean tweet).
