BY NOW YOU’RE well familiar with the concept.

Talk show host Jimmy Kimmel gets a bunch of celebrities into his studio and has them read mean tweets about themselves.

To kick off the new NFL season, Kimmel asked some current and former NFL players – as well as Erin Andrews – to read some of the worst offenders.

They range from the mean (poor Terrell Suggs) to the hilarious (poor Michael Strahan) and it finishes with a brilliant riposte from Malcolm Smith.

Obviously this contains some naughty language because it is Twitter content after all.
