SHARE Obama reads Chicagoan’s ‘mean tweet’ on ‘Jimmy Kimmel’

President Obama joined Jimmy Kimmel last night for a guest appearance on the comedian’s late-night talkfest.

Obama ultimately participated in a segment of celebrity “Mean Tweets,” reading real tweets about him from around the globe.

The tweet was originally published back in September.

A 30 rack of coors light is $23 now at Sun Stop. Thanks, Obama. — Eric Matthews (@CampaignRPoz) September 21, 2014

One such tweet (at the 1:04 mark), came from Chicagoan Eric Matthews (now a college student in Arizona ) who tweeted he was at the Chicago Blackhawks game Thursday night in Arizona when it all came down:

According to TMZ.com Matthews ended getting free beer today because of the tweet:

He headed down to his favorite Sun Stop to celebrate, mentioned the tweet to the cashier, who rewarded him with a free case of Keystone and a bottle of Baccardi.

And Matthews tweeted this earlier today:
