‘JJ Watt Kinda Looks Like a Fat Macklemore’: NFL Players Read Mean Tweets Prior to Super Bowl

Thursday night’s edition of Jimmy Kimmel Live featured another edition of one of the show’s great recurring segments: Celebs Read Mean Tweets.

In advance of Sunday night’s Super Bowl, it was NFL players’ turn to read disparaging things about themselves. Some of the tweets, while probing, weren’t totally venomous — like the crack one fan made about Houston Texans defensive end JJ Watt.

“JJ Watt kinda looks like a fat Macklemore,” Watt said, reading the fan’s insult.

Then there were others that were far more mean-spirited, like this one directed at Washington Redskins cornerback Josh Norman.

“F**k Josh Norman, that buck tooth bitch cant cover s**t,” Norman said.

But the segment belonged to Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, who fired back at his Twitter critic with some perfect sarcasm.

“Tony Romo sits down to pee,” Romo said, reading the Tweets. Then he took a beat, looked right at the camera, and deadpanned…

“Well, what other way is there?”
