Carrie Underwood condems Twitter user for tweeting her distaste for the Sunday Night Football theme song
Jessica Smetana, a Sports Illustrated producer, was doing what people do on twitter -- expressing an opinion. She didn't even "@" Carrie Underwood when she tweeted "about how much we hate the new Carrie Underwood song." Quoting Smetana's tweet, Underwood responded 22 minutes later: "Hey, I know my music isn’t for everyone, but I love what I do and I love being a part of @SNFonNBC ! (heart) I am one lucky lady!" Underwood tweeted. "I also love women who build other women up...just saying..." Smetana quickly responded: "Omg wait no I love you I just miss the old song!!," adding in a tweet the next day: "Sorry I dissed ‘Game On’ in my tweets about Cris Collinsworth’s slides. I didn’t mean to upset Carrie or her fans, and I’m all about supporting women too. I just miss ‘Waiting all day for Sunday Night.'” Meanwhile, over at Deadspin, Laura Wagner compiled all the headlines resulting from this "non-story," adding: "This should go without saying: People are allowed to have opinions about a TV theme, even mean ones, and they shouldn’t apologize for them."
