Celebrities Read Mums' Texts on Jimmy Kimmel Video 2019

These Celebrities Reading Texts From Their Mums Prove Even Famous Parents Can't Avoid Autocorrect Fails

Jimmy Kimmel's mean tweets segments are legendary by this point, but as the US prepares to celebrate Mother's Day, the late night host put a sweet spin on his usual celebrity segment, and instead of asking stars to read out the cruel things people have said about them on social media, instead he asked them to read out the funniest or weirdest texts they've received from their mums. It's not the first time he's done this, but it could be the best yet.

Among those taking part are Katy Perry (whose mum doesn't so much write texts as short stories) Billie Eilish (whose mum seems to be one of many to fall foul of autocorrect on a certain word beginning with "F") and the Kardashians, who revealed that all Kris Jenner really wants for Mother's Day is a reply from Kourtney. Watch for yourself ahead, then see if you can stop yourself from picking up your own phone and scrolling through your history to find the text from your mum that would be perfect for this skit.
