Celebrities like Judd Apatow and Patricia Arquette have now hit back at Alley over her endorsement message, with some referencing Shelley Long, the actress she replaced on Cheers.
“Shelley Long was way funnier than you,” director Apatow wrote, while Arquette added, “Well my vote for Biden canceled yours out (sic). I have done my civic duty of the day.”
The backlash promoted Alley to call out those engaging in “name-calling”, firing back: “I guess I’m not allowed to have a viewpoint without being called really nasty names by what I’m going to suppose are really nasty people.”
