by Quentin Blount

Politically outspoken actress Kirstie Alley took to social media on Saturday evening, albeit this time for a different reason than usual.

Alley sent out a tweet just before 7:00 PM asking her Twitter followers to pray for her dad.

“Hi.. one request cause you are the best at this. Please say a little prayer for my dad,” Alley asked of her 1.5 million Twitter followers. “He’s Struggling a bit & your prayers help him …thank you..”

Meanwhile, after receiving numerous well wishes and prayers from her fans and followers, Alley posted another tweet shortly after. She thanked everyone for their prayers.

“Thank you all for your powerful and loving prayers .. sincerely thank you. ❤️”

Kirstie Alley Announced That Her Father Had COVID-19 a Few Weeks Ago

Earlier this month, Alley posted a string of now-deleted tweets explaining how her father has COVID-19. In the tweets, she begs the nursing home to allow her family to visit him. 

Alley, 69, posted on Twitter about her 96-year-old father’s positive test results to COVID-19 during his time in a nursing home. She also posted about her plea to the home to let her family visit the man, who they haven’t seen in seven months.

“My 96 year old dad tested positive for Covid yesterday. He’s not left his room in his nice care center for 7 months. FAMILY haven’t been allowed in for 7 months. Masks & gloves worn by all workers. SO let FAMILY in to see our loved ones.! We can wear masks gloves & be TESTED too,” she wrote earlier this month.

An hour later, Alley adds her family promises to go to any extreme in order to see him. She cites testing and proper safety coverage as precautions they are willing to take.

“My dad is doing really well so far.❤️🙏🏼 The reason I posted is because this is a A PLEA to OWNERS of nursing, care & assisted living homes that WE too, can mask up glove up & show proof of Covid neg testing & be ALLOWED to see our FAMILY. The EXACT SAME PROTOCOL AS YOUR WORKERS.”
