Kirstie Alley Puts Victims On Blast For Not Confronting Their Abusers: ‘This Is Bullshit’

kirstie alley victim blames twitter

Kirstie Alley has some BIG opinions about the current sexual misconduct firestorm.

On Wednesday, the Cheers alum took to Twitter to seemingly defend the many Hollywood heavyweights recently fired over claims of sexual misconduct. This particular tweet dropped amid Matt Lauer‘s ousting from NBC News for “inappropriate sexual behavior.”

The industry vet wrote:

Whoa, whoa, whoaaaa. Kirstie, who are YOU to be dictating how victims handle harassment and/or assault?? There is no one right way to take on an abuser.

Understandably, Miz Alley got quite a bit of backlash for her victim-blaming tweet. In fact, Kirstie’s followers clapped back with:

In an attempt to maintain the moral high ground, the 66-year-old claimed she was in no way talking about Lauer’s recent fall from grace. Alley added:

Hey, Kirstie — you can’t blame people for thinking you were talking about the former Today show host. We mean, your timing was PRETTY suspicious.

Lauer was also defended by Fox News pundit Geraldo Rivera, who claimed that “news is a flirty business.” Ugh. No.

Still, it appears that the Scream Queens vet is well aware that she fucked up, as she concluded:

We aren’t sure those posts are enough to save your ass this time around, Kirstie!! Sorry, girl.
