Kirstie Alley pretends to shoot up coronavirus drugs while criticizing CNN for ...

Actress Kirstie Alley escalated her public feud with CNN by pretending to inject coronavirus drugs as she slammed the outlet for 'terrorizing' its viewers with its pandemic coverage. 

Alley put on the provocative display during an interview with Tucker Carlson on Sunday night, where the Fox News host asked her to explain her row with CNN. 

'The thing that makes me mad is they're terrifying people 27/4 but they don't have any additional preventatives,' Alley said of CNN. 

'They're saying the same thing, it's the three same things we heard for eight months,' she said in reference to coronavirus safety protocols. 'Many people do that and they still get [the virus], so I don't know what the mystery is behind that. 

'But, if they were coming up with new preventives, I would be happy to listen.' 

She then mimed a person shooting up drugs as she said: 'God forbid we come up with any new, what are they called, therapeutics. Shoot them all down!' 

Alley's wild hand gestures caused Carlson to break down in a fit of laughter.  

'You make such a rational point,' he said. 'Here you doing what you asked, you are not coughing on anyone in elevators.'

Alley added that she has never instructed anyone not to wear masks, insisting that she herself has been following health safety recommendations aimed at stemming the spread of the virus.

Asked why CNN has been 'broadcasting terror', as she put it, Alley said it was a 'deflection' to avoid talking about the Hunter Biden email scandal. 

'They don't want to talk about what might be big news,' she said. 

'I have two friends who almost died [of coronavirus], I'm not downplaying it, I'm just saying what good is it if you provoke terror? 

'It makes people commit suicide or not go to the doctor if they have cancer, god forbid, or pneumonia, they won't show up at the hospital. Because they are afraid of covid.

'I like hopefulness with a report.'

'I know why my personal friends who walk around in SHEER TERROR of contracting COVID are simply CNN viewers!' the 69-year-old Scientologist wrote.

'I decided to watch CNN myself to get 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 official communications page quickly issued a response to Alley, scorning: 'Kirstie, you are welcome to change the channel — just like countless viewers did every time "Veronica's Closet" came on TV,' in reference to her 1997 sitcom.

'But don't downplay the loss of
