Cheers Star Kirstie Alley Ignites Political Twitter Feud

","level":0,"displayType":"paragraph"},{"text":"Kirstie Alley gained more attention than she had in the last 20 years of her acting career combined on October 17th, when she made a controversial tweet. She announced her support for Donald Trump, followed by the explanation of “because he’s NOT a politician.” If Alley had missed being out of the spotlight, this did the trick. It seems Alley embodied the phrase “all publicity is good publicity.” She trended on Twitter for at least two days as people called her every name in the book. No one held back. Other various celebrities on social media even got involved, shaming her for her public endorsement. Allie responded to many of the negative comments about her. She then continued to fuel the fire, tweeting, “Don’t think I’ve ever seen so much name-calling in my life.” It appeared Alley had no issue with the attacks as she seemed to have spent the rest of her day being petty and arguing with other Twitter users. ","level":0,"displayType":"paragraph"}],"displayType":"section"}]},{"elements":[{"text":"https://twitter.com/kirstiealley/status/1317984079179112449?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw","displayType":"twitter"},{"elements":[{"text":"","level":0,"displayType":"paragraph"}],"displayType":"section"}]},{"elements":[{"text":"https://twitter.com/kirstiealley/status/1317990849863688192?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw","displayType":"twitter"},{"elements":[{"text":"","level":0,"displayType":"paragraph"},{"text":"Eventually, people brought a fellow Cheers cast member into the argument. Many started responding to Alley, both directly and indirectly, by rubbing in her face how much better Shelley Long was on the show. Shelley Long’s name was mentioned so many times on Twitter in response to Alley’s tweet that she too started trending. Of course, this meant that those belonging to younger generations had to look up why, but found it funny all the same.","level":0,"displayType":"paragraph"}],"displayType":"section"}]},{"elements":[{"text":"https://twitter.com/kirstiealley/status/1317694117779017728?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw","displayType":"twitter"},{"elements":[{"text":"","level":0,"displayType":"paragraph"},{"text":"Kirstie Alley sent out one more tweet about the subject on October 18th, telling people to “Stick to your guns. Not always easy being under fire but always easier than going against your own integrity.” She signed on today to respond to a few more negative comments, seemingly unable to resist the attention it brought to her name. However, after two days, Alley’s 15 minutes of renewed fame are up again. She has officially earned a spot on a list reserved for washed-up celebrities publicly endorsing Trump. Many of their names only appear when they tweet something just wild enough to gain everybody’s attention. I’m sure this won’t be the last time we hear from Kirstie as the final day for the election approaches; she appears unable to resist gaining some spotlight.  ","level":0,"displayType":"paragraph"}],"displayType":"section"}]}]; var articleType = 'ARTICLE'; var favoriteImage = '/static/62629bfb-8faa-437d-b6d6-f742de1facb3.jpeg'; var articleDescription = ''; var slide_index = parseInt(0); var slide_json = createSlides(slides, articleType, favoriteImage); var initial_slide = slide_index; var initial_url = location.pathname + location.search; var base_url = '/2020/10/19/cheers-star-kirstie-alley-ignites-political-twitter-feud/'; var next_gallery = '/2016/12/23/ex-brings-erotic-photos-to-exs-wedding-details-photos/'; var first_load = true; var has_scrolled = false; var title = "Cheers Star Kirstie Alley Ignites Political Twitter Feud"; var path = base_url
