Kirstie Alley isn't pleased with the recent firing of many Hollywood stars without due process. The 66-year-old actress tweeted today, "what the h*ll is happening?"

Alley stated that we're now living in a nation where people are fired from their positions without proof or a trial, "in some cases with anonymous accusers?"

Kirstie said "it's b*llshit" that those who are affected can't confront their accusers. The Cheers alum made her comments on the same day NBC let go Matt Lauer from his position as a host on the Today Show.

The network received a complaint from a colleague about "inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace." Variety published a report later detailing what was said and done by Lauer.

After social media users slammed Kirstie for her alleged "insensitivity," the actress took to Twitter yet again to preach.

Kirstie wrote, "there is so much good in this world. I just hope all this chaos doesn't exclude the goodness around us." The Look Who's Talking star said: "take injustice against the bad" and cherish the good.

As you may know, Alley isn't the only person to speak out against allegedly deleterious allegations. Geraldo Rivera posted several tweets claiming that we, as a society, are conflating "flirtation" with "predation."

Rivera said, "it seems like the current epidemic of sexual harassment allegations may be criminalizing courtship and conflating it with predation."

Furthermore, Matt's co-stars Hoda Kotb said "we are all sinners," and it's "tough" to watch someone go who you have worked with for many years. Mark Halperin is another journalist recently fired from his position, as well as Charlie Rose.

    Yes, it's a good thing that victims are comfortable in coming forward to report. There are however, varying degrees of victimization. Let's not commence wholesale executions on every person accused. If we accept a system or society which presumes guilt, every member is at risk. We need a history lesson. Spanish Inquisition, French Revolution, the Third Reich. Salem witch trials. There is no doubt that hyper-sexuality has been pervasive in this country for far too long. And that some have major issues with boundaries, as well as power and control. But to slap the label of "predator", "pedophile" or "rapist" on every person accused, waters these terms down, thereby taking the focus off of the real individual who deserves the attention this label warrants.
