Hell hath no fury like the Team USA curlers getting trolled on Twitter by actress Kirstie Alley.

“Look who’s talking” with the “profoundly normal” movies you’ve starred in, “Kirstie”. This game of “sticks and stones” is the “runaway” favorite of the Olympics. Give curling “one more chance”. “Cheers” ?

Alley eventually promised to give the sport “another chance”:
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

Team USA’s curlers embraced the detente by inviting Alley and her son for a training session:
That’s the Olympic spirit, right there.
