Watch NFL Players Tackle The Meanest Tweets The Internet Has To Offer

"I have no problem tweeting this because he probably can't read it."

With the Super Bowl happening this Sunday, Jimmy Kimmel celebrated the only way he knows how — by getting NFL players to read mean tweets about themselves.

Football stars such as Odell Beckham Jr., J.J. Watt, Tony Romo, Russell Wilson, and Rob Gronkowski all get in on the fun, reciting some of the most entertaining insults about themselves the internet has to offer. As we've seen in previous installments, featuring everyone from movie stars to country singers, the selected tweets range from NSFW name-calling to creative comparisons.

But don't be fooled by the background music ("Everybody Hurts"). Twitter trolls are no match for these champs, who just let the comments roll off their backs with a laugh or a shake of the head. Sometimes, they even have a comeback at the ready. 


This long-winded tweet wasted no characters and left Giants player Odell Beckham Jr. speechless.

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson wasn't exactly amused by the unexpected turn this tweet took.

This tweet gave Patriot Rob Gronkowski the perfect opportunity to prove the haters wrong. His response? "I just read it. You're dumb."
