There are many ways to shame Internet trolls, but Jimmy Kimmel has discovered one of the most amusing ways -- by getting celebrities to read the vile tweets that are directed at themselves. In the most recent edition, Kimmel enlists New York Knicks' Amar'e Stoudemire, Houston Rockets' Dwight Howard and "Jermy Lin." Some of the stars, like Paul George and Lin, have comebacks for their haters, too.
