“Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star Kylie Jenner and YouTube comedian Jenna Marbles teamed up for their own version of “Mean Tweets.” Normally, late night host Jimmy Kimmel has celebrities read aloud insulting Twitter messages about themselves, but Jenner and Marbles read them about their dogs after the E! reality star invited the comedian to appear on her app.
Of course, Marbles brought along her dog, Kermit. The women dressed up their dogs, who are both Italian greyhounds, in silly outfits.
One of the messages about Jenner and her pooch, Norman, read: “Why Kylie Jenner would ever purchase a large rat and name it Norman is beyond me.” But Marbles had some good news for Norman. “You’re not a rat, you’re a dinosaur,” she told him.
Another about the YouTube comedian, whose real name is Jenna Mourey, and Kermit said: “Jenna Marbles' dog resembles a decomposing rat.” To clear up any apparent discrepancy, Marbles said to Jenner: “Yours is a rat, but mine is decomposing.”
The only way to see the full video is to purchase Jenner’s app, which requires participants to pay a monthly subscription. Thanks to Marbles, fans can see a mini preview on her Twitter account. Jenner, 18, promoted the clip by asking fans if they had seen Marbles’ video.

But the Marbles video wasn’t the only thing that got people talking Monday. Jenner caused a stir when she posted a photo of herself in Spanx. She told fans they could buy them at Target. Followers soon called her out for wearing a girdle with butt pads, but Jenner wasn’t shy. She then shared a link so fans could buy the same butt-padded Spanx. The only problem is that the link she shared was for a pair from Kohl’s, not Target.
