'Tis the season to read mean tweets.

In the ninth installment of Jimmy Kimmel Live!'s recurring "Mean Tweets" segment, airing tonight at 11:35 on ABC, Sean Penn and Liv Tyler read and react to some of the nasty things people have said about them online. Penn remains stoic as he reads this gem from @KikiRazzle: "Sean Penn, you rude! Dumb, rude and full of farts. You stanky Sean, real time stanker." Tyler, meanwhile, howls with laughter after reading a tweet directed at her and her dad, Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler: "Must be hard for Liv Tyler having a father that is just a giant ballsack."

To see who else is reading mean tweets, watch tonight's show. Gary Clark Jr. is also scheduled to perform, and Donald Trump is slated to finally make an appearance two months after he abruptly canceled on Jimmy Kimmel. At the time, Trump's team said he decided to back out of the booking due to a "political obligation" and would be rebooked on the show within a matter of weeks. Kimmel made fun of the GOP frontrunner during his opening monologue on Oct. 20.

"His people called late last night and canceled on us. They were cryptic as to why he canceled. They said he has a major political commitment. But he did want me to relay the message to you that if he had been here, he would have been great. I'm dying to find out what this major political commitment was," he joked. "Usually, it means he had to go on CNN and call someone an idiot or something."

"Why did he cancel?" he asked. "We told him there were cameras here, right?"

"Are Tuesday nights the nights he volunteers down at the orphanage?"

Kimmel, who was taping a week of shows at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in Brooklyn, promised to make it up to his audience. "Don't worry," he said. "Tonight, we're going to give everyone in the audience a basketball dipped in cologne, so you can fully experience what it would have been like had Donald Trump been here."

One can only imagine what Kimmel and Trump will have to talk about tonight.
