Fires back with prayer.

Taylor Swift said it first, but now Carrie Underwood is asking The Sound of Music critics, “Why you gotta be so mean?”

After getting mixed reviews on her performance in the live production of The Sound of Music, Carrie tweeted:

The passage of scripture begins with, “Therefore, rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and slander of every kind” (NIV).

Among those with harsh words for the show was Kym Karath, who played Gretl in the big-screen version of the musical with Julie Andrews. Kym tweeted, “Must admit, some scenes are actually painful to watch.” Then she later added, “She is lovely, her voice is beautiful, but the acting is wrong.”

Carrie has also received her share of support, though, including from Mario Lopez and Elisabeth Hasselbeck, who, on this morning’s The View, said Carrie's performance displayed “courage.”
