Kristie Alley attacked US curling team on Twitter, but quickly realized she picked the wrong guys
Kristie Alley remarked that curling as a sport was extremely boring but the team had some choice words for the actress.
The 2018 Winter Olympics is underway in Seoul but it feels like the competition for who's better and winning in life is taking place on Twitter. Just after the US men's curling team defeated Canada over the weekend, Cheers actress Kristie Alley tweeted about the US curling team and said things that didn't sit well with the sports team. The 67-year-old actress tweeted, "I’m not trying to be mean but…… Curling is boring."
Kristie's tweet was a bit shocking but it was nothing compared to what the team said via their Twitter handle. She was told, "We’re not trying to be mean either but your movies weren’t exactly riveting theater Kirstie. #justsaying #curling #rockit #TeamUSA." This Twitter feud between the actress and the national sports team sparked so much intrigue that the actress ended up deleting it and made amends with them.
The It Takes Two actress wrote that she's going to give curling another chance since her son is a huge fan of it. And the team again got in on her tweet and congratulated her for "coming around." Then they invited the mother-son duo for some sporting fun and even threw in a USA Curling T-shirt to bury the hatchet, according to Hollywood Life.
Ok I'm gonna give it another chance! My son loves watching Curling! He doesn't love figure skating which I do so we can make each other give 2nd chances today!! ❤️❤️ https://t.co/lFJkFF9ioP— Kirstie Alley (@kirstiealley) February 20, 2018
I deleted any of my tweets that I decided were unnecessary .... True, I could have deleted all my tweets with that criteria, but I'm lazy— Kirstie Alley (@kirstiealley) February 21, 2018
I'm in!!! https://t.co/jK4mWCfR42— Kirstie Alley (@kirstiealley) February 20, 2018
Okay, so it looks like this Twitter feuded ended just as it began but it seemed like it could have devolved into a pretty nasty spat. The actress told them that she's up to play the sport and perhaps we might just get a chance to see her support the team.
Kristie's tweet appeared after the US men's curling team beat defending gold medalists Canada over the weekend. The win was significant as it still kept the US team in contention for the gold medal at the 2018 Winter Olympics.
Team player Tyler George was stoked about the win and wrote in a tweet, "Feeling an immense sense of pride from coming out on top in one of the greatest games I’ve ever been a part of. @TeamUSA for the win over Canada! Incredible atmosphere…our fans were amazing, and the shotmaking was a heavyweight fight. We stay alive!! #PyeongChang2018."
