Just a few days ahead of Super Bowl LIV, Jimmy Kimmel decided to roast some of the NFL’s most popular athletes with hilarious burns during his newest Mean Tweets segment on Jimmy Kimmel Live!. The biggest target of the night was future hall-of-famer Tom Brady, who had to read three savage tweets out loud.
Some of the tweets were hilarious, others were strange. But, the best part of the segment was seeing the reaction from the players, who aren’t used to hearing such nasty words from “fans.”
“Hi, I’m Tom Brady and I’m a cry baby and I have a butt hole in my chin,” was the first tweet that the New England Patriots quarterback read out loud. A second mean tweet about Brady also called him out for his love of crying, and the third went after his dog, which Brady called “f*cked up.”
Brady’s fellow New England Patriot Sony Michel had to deal with a bad joke about electronics that was a play on his name.
One Twitter user believes that Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes’s barber is a super hero, and his teammate Travis Kelce apparently looks like a popular mascot.
Other current players that joined the segment included Philadelphia Eagles running back Corey Clement, Los Angeles Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa, Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Devin Funchess, Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley, and former Philadelphia Eagles running back Jay Ajayi.

Hall of Fame players also got involved in the segment. Former Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Terry Bradshaw – who will be part of Fox’s Super Bowl broadcast on Sunday – had a quick comeback to an insult about his lack of hair and his intelligence.
And, former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Irvin didn’t have to worry about an insult when it came to his looks or his football talent, but he did have to deal with a unique description of his bold fashion choices.
All of the current and former NFL players seemed to take the trash talk in stride, as they either laughed, groaned, or simply looked up at the camera in disbelief.
