Man Has ‘Mean Tweet’ Read by Obama, Scores Free Booze


President Obama’s participation in Jimmy Kimmel’s Thursday evening’s “Mean Tweets” segment is going viral, and now one of the tweeters has cashed in on his new fame.

“A 30 rack of coors light is $23 now at Sun Stop. Thanks, Obama,” said Eric Matthews on Twitter, as read by the President of the United States.

According to TMZ, Matthews was stunned when he learned his message was read aloud by Obama on national television, so he went to the Sun Stop location Friday morning to celebrate.

Eric told the clerk about the Kimmel experience, who then gave him a bottle of Bacardi and a case of Keystone…for free.

In the video below, courtesy of TMZ, Matthews can be seen shotgunning a can of beer outside the store just before he kicked off his Spring Break.

Thanks, Obama.
