Curlers didn't take kindly to actress Kirstie Alley calling their game "boring." So they responded with a boring insult of their own. Alley, 67, tweeted on Monday, saying that "I'm not trying to be mean but...... Curling is boring."
Alley has since deleted the tweet.
The curlers responded in kind, and even though they seemed to be ok with being called boring, the source seemed to stagger America's Team Shuster a bit.
"We're not trying to be mean either but your movies weren't exactly riveting theater Kirstie," it tweeted in reply.
We’re not trying to be mean either but your movies weren’t exactly riveting theater Kirstie. #justsaying #curling #rockit #TeamUSA https://t.co/8q9KtxvCPe— Team Shuster (@TeamShuster) February 20, 2018
This has the potential to be the most boring war of words in history at this point. Alley, who has starred in cinematic masterpieces such as Summer School, Village of the Damned and Back By Midnight also responded to Matt Hamilton, who told her she was allowed to be wrong, with laughing emojis.

Unfortunately (or fortunately, if you're into peaceful resolutions), the debacle was resolved peacefully, with Alley saying that she'd give curling another shot.
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
Eventually, Alley said that she was on board with curling, and Team Shuster welcomed her to the squad.
I'm in!!! https://t.co/jK4mWCfR42— Kirstie Alley (@kirstiealley) February 20, 2018
And with that, the barbs ended, and we can rest at night knowing that the Kirstie Alley-Team Shuster war of 2018 is over.
