Los Angeles Kings read mean tweets to our amusement

The Los Angeles Kings blatantly ripped off a certain late night talk show came up with a really great idea: have their players read some of the mean things said about them on Twitter.

Negativity runs rampant on social media, even for the Pacific Division-leading Kings, so it was nice to see the players take it in stride and laugh at themselves in this short video.

The tweets ranged from the cheeky (Drew Doughty‘s), to the pessimistic (poor Trevor Lewis), to the downright spiteful when a certain Montreal Canadiens fan says Milan Lucic, “hates puppies and is the reason for world hunger.”

So just keep in mind that the next time you call out a King on Twitter, you might be featured on their YouTube page.
