My Mom Reads Mean Tweets

Videos by OutKick

It’s no secret that lots of people online hate me. That would make some people sad. But I’m like a pig who loves wallowing in the slop, I can’t get enough of the hate. 

The hate does upset my mom though. Because, after all, I’m her perfect golden child. How could anyone not like me?

We’ve been experimenting of late with Outkick videos so several months ago I figured, why not get ten or so of the worst things people have Tweeted to me, not tell my mom in advance, and then have her read them off a teleprompter with a camera crew in her house?

So what’s it sound like when a Southern grandma of six reads some of the worst things people say to me online? It’s glorious.

Happy belated mother’s day from Outkick the Coverage:
