It was a particularly fun Mean Tweets segment on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live.'

Don Rickles could dish out the insults with the best of them, but he could take a joke too — that is, if it was good. 

While visiting Jimmy Kimmel Live years ago, Rickles participated in the fan favorite "Mean Tweets" segment in which celebrities read harsh but usually funny posts about themselves from social media users. 

Rickles, who, yes, had a Twitter account, of course was a good sport. Someone tweeted at him that he looked like Yoda. His reaction to this was priceless. 

Rickles died Thursday in L.A. He was 90. 

Watch Rickles below, starting at 1:10.
