#GlobalNews: “Kirstie Alley criticized by Olympic curlers after she calls sport ‘boring’ – National”


The U.S. Olympic curling team started a Twitter feud with Kirstie Alley for calling the sport “boring” on Twitter.

“I’m not trying to be mean but…… Curling is boring,” the 67-year-old actress posted on Monday night.

A couple hours later, the U.S. Men’s Olympic Curling team’s verified Twitter account responded to Alley.

“We’re not trying to be mean either but your movies weren’t exactly riveting theater Kirstie. #justsaying #curling,” the Team Shuster account tweeted.

Curler Matt Hamilton also responded to the Alley’s tweet, writing, “You’re entitled to your wrong opinion.”

Alley responded to Hamilton’s tweet with a couple laughing emojis.

By early Tuesday, Alley experienced a change of heart, tweeting, “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!”

The team tweeted Alley back and offered the actress and her son curling lessons and USA curling swag.

“Awww @kirstiealley, we knew you’d come around! Allow us or our good friends at @HollywoodCurl to show you and your son the ropes sometime,” the team tweeted in response. “In the meantime, let us outfit you both with a @usacurl shirt. #TeamKirstie #TeamShuster #TeamUSA #curling #cheers.”

Alley took the team up on the lessons and free swag.
