Kristi Yamaguchi Tells Nancy Kerrigan to “Break a Leg” on DWTS…Ooops! (Tweet)
Nancy Kerrigan is known for one thing: getting hit in the leg with a crowbar by goons hired by rival ice skater Tanya Harding. Then she hosted a terribly unfunny SNL, but that was a result of the earlier crowbar incident.
Now, over 20 years later, she’s still hanging around, competing on Dancing with the Stars.
In an effort to boost her morale for this season’s competition, former ice skating peer and 2008 DWTS champ Kristi Yamaguchi fired off a tweet wishing Kerrigan the best of luck.
Only…it could have been worded a little more thoughtfully:

Did Twitter have fun with this? Yes. It did.

But Nancy was gracious enough to not let the wording bother her, if she even noticed:
— Nancy Kerrigan (@NancyAKerrigan) March 22, 2017
Good luck Nancy. (It might not be proper showbiz form to say that, but it beats some of the alternatives.)
