Kirstie Alley blasts CNN, network offers snide comeback, says “you are welcome to change the channel “

In a rare move for a major major news network, CNN’s official communications department fired back at actress Kirstie Alley for her criticism of their news network.

Kirstie Alley had written “I now Know why my personal friends who walk around in SHEER TERROR of contracting Covid are simply CNN viewers!”

She added “I decided to watch CNN myself to get a their viewpoint and oh my God DID I EVER!!!! IF YOU TOO WANT TO LIVE IN TERROR WATCH CNN!! FEAR OF DYING IS THEIR MANTRA! OMG!”

CNN’s PR department fired back on Twitter “Kirstie, you are welcome to change the channel – just like countless viewers did every time “Veronica’s Closet” came on TV.”

They added “But don’t downplay the loss of nearly 230K American lives. And please, wear a mask.”

Between Alley’s tweet and the response, the two tweets have over 178k likes and have over 35k people talking.

One Twitter user cheered CNN and wrote “@CNN
you need to give the kid running your Twitter accounts a RAISE!”

Another fired back and wrote “No. They need to hire a communications professional. This sounds like a kid wrote it, but the familiarity with older television shows suggests it’s probably a very immature adult. I guess that’s the Democrats’ brand though.”
