Once upon a time, many years ago, there was a very talented professional figure skater named Nancy Kerrigan.
Nancy did her best, she put a lot of work into skating, but in January of 1994, while Nancy was practicing for the U.S. Figure Skating Championship, she was attacked.
The husband of Tonya Harding, a fellow figure skater, hired someone to break Nancy's leg so that she couldn't compete.
Nancy's leg wasn't broken, but it was bruised enough to prevent her from competing.
And now, when you think of Nancy Kerrigan, the first thing you think of is that attack.
Which makes it so amazing and horrifying and hilarious that Kristi Yamaguchi, another figure skater, tweeted at Nancy to "break a leg" during her time as a contestant on Dancing with the Stars.
Yeah, she really did that.
And Twitter absolutely cannot handle it.
How It All Began ...
Kristi, girl, you did NOT.

Not Beyonce, Too!
Oh dang, Kristi. This is getting too real.
Kristi, how COULD you?!
This guy gets it.
We See You, Tonya!
Somewhere, Tonya Harding is LOLing harder than all of us.
Does Kristi not think before she tweets? Or is she secretly hilarious?
The SHADE of It All!
Was Kristi being shady? Or was it an honest mistake? These are the REAL QUESTIONS.
Our minds will forever be blown by Kristi Yamaguchi's iconic carelessness.
"Girrrl" is Right!
Oh, these palpitations ...
Sometimes, only overused memes can truly communicate the seriousness of a situation.

So much cringing, so little time.
Kristi. Explain yourself.
