1992 Olympic figure skating gold medalist Kristi Yamaguchi took some time out of her day to wish her friend, and fellow Olympic figure skating alum, Nancy Kerrigan good luck during her upcoming appearance on Dancing with the Stars.
Her word choice could have been better.
Yamaguchi tweeted to Kerrigan to “break a leg” during her performance, which would be fine if Kerrigan hadn’t been famously knee-capped with a pipe after exiting a 1994 U.S Figure Skating Championship workout.

It was obviously an innocent mistake by Yamaguchi, and enough time has passed from the incident that we should all be able to have a chuckle over it.
Don’t get any ideas, Tonya Harding.
