Katee Sackhoff, the Hollywood actress known for her tomboyish, gun-toting star roles in hard-charging action flicks and TV shows — including one as mercurial but talented pilot Kara “Starbuck” Thrace on the television series “Battlestar Galactica” — has taken a Twitter hit for her pro-gun messages.
She tweeted on Monday: “On a lighter note since I’ve lost half my followers due to talking about gun safety … the sun is shining and Happy Monday. Love your neighbor today.”
She still has 98,500 followers.
Miss Sackhoff raised a firestorm with the gun-control crowd with the following tweet, in response to a recent media story about a 4-year-old boy who accidentally shot his father.
“Please practice gun safety,” she tweeted. “This is horrible.”
