What would Sally Field be doing if she wasn't an actress? Kind of a surprising answer... and even though the quote was cut from her interview with The Hollywood Reporter, it's still making the rounds in Alabama.
Let's just say it's not sitting well...
.@sally_field You need to apologize to the people of Tuscaloosa. You aren't from here, and you have no right to insult our city in that way.— Christopher Spencer (@cspencer96) May 23, 2017
If that's @sally_field 's view of people in the South & AL specifically then all I'm going to say is "Bless Your Heart"— Susan Strickland (@SCS_AuburnFan) May 20, 2017
"Bless Your Heart"?! That's the ultimate Southernism, both a blessing and a curse.
Of course, there may be a simple explanation for the slap at Tuscaloosa.....
So, Tuscaloosa... and the rest of Alabama, for that matter... do you like her right now?
