On June 10, “Battlestar Galactica” actress Katee Sackhoff Tweeted about gun safety and countered a follower’s pro-gun control Tweet–as a result she lost half of her Twitter followers–or about 100,000 people.
Sackhoff’s original gun safety Tweet was in response to a story CNN carried about a 4-year old Arizona boy who fatally shot his father by accident. The boy apparently found a handgun lying in a home he and his father were visiting, picked it up and pulled the trigger.
Sackhoff Tweeted: “Please practice gun safety! This is horrible!”
After this, one of Sackhoff’s followers Tweeted for more and more gun control. The actress responded: “Never going to happen in the U.S. Proper gun safety is a necessity though.”
