Winter Olympics: Curlers clap back after Kirstie Alley calls their sport 'boring'

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.

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.

Eventually, Alley said that she was on board with curling, and Team Shuster welcomed her to the squad.

And with that, the barbs ended, and we can rest at night knowing that the Kirstie Alley-Team Shuster war of 2018 is over.
