Famous musicians, like any other kind of celebrity, have swaths of adoring worshipers. But all it takes is one false step, one glib moment, one bad single or hell, sometimes nothing at all, for them to be on the receiving end of the nastiest sh** Twitter has to offer.

Most were dumbfounded by the petty nature of the 140-character insults, but some played along. John Legend’s reaction, particularly, is in need of a GIF.
The segment aired in early October, but is going viral once again today. Watch above!
