Carrie Underwood Slams 'Mean People' After 'Sound of Music Live!'


Carrie Underwood


The 'American Idol' alumna was criticized for her acting skill as the central character of the musical production.

Carrie Underwood knew that slipping into the shoes of beloved actress Julie Andrews was going to generate criticisms, yet she can't help to respond. After her critically-panned performance on NBC's "The Sound of Music Live!", she took to Twitter to bash "mean people."

Underwood's acting chop got under scrutiny from fans of the classic movie, including original star Kym Karath. "Must admit some scenes are actually painful to watch," the actress who played Greti von Trapp tweeted on Friday, December 6. "Mystified & disappointed so far by SOM special. So far only happy with Stephen Moyer. Love Carrie Underwood but this role is just not right for her. She is lovely her voice is beautiful but acting is wrong."

On the same day Karath tweeted, Underwood wrote, "Plain and simple: Mean people need Jesus. They will be in my prayers tonight...1 Peter 2:1-25." She cited the phrase "rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and slander of every kind" from the Bible.

"Sound of Music Live!" pulled in 18.47 million viewers for NBC. Underwood expressed her satisfaction of the production after the show wrapped up. "Glory to God tonight...I couldn't be more proud," she tweeted. "What a tough thing to pull off and we did it! I am so blessed!!!"
