Twitter freaks out over Kristi Yamaguchi telling Nancy Kerrigan to ‘break a leg’

A good luck tweet from Kristi Yamaguchi to her former Olympic figure-skating teammate Nancy Kerrigan has Twitter freaking out. Yamaguchi told Kerrigan to “break a leg,” using the old show biz expression for wishing fellow performers well, on ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars.” Kerrigan was clubbed in the right knee before the 1994 Winter Olympics, and the Twitterverse didn’t hold back from comments on this innocent but unfortunate choice of words.
