When news broke that Carrie Underwood would play Maria Von Trapp in the “Sound of Music Live!” there were several critics. The special aired on NBC Dec. 5, and went off without a hitch. In the days leading up to the big event, several hateful messages and tweet were sent to Carrie Underwood. According to a Dec. 7 report from E! Online, Carrie Underwood tweeted about her haters saying “Plain and simple: Mean people need Jesus” just a day after the show aired.

While the reviews were mixed over the “Sound of Music Live!” fans of Carrie Underwood have come to her defense. Critics have slammed Underwood because she came into fame because of “American Idol” and has not done much acting. With all of the criticism, Carrie Underwood has handled herself well.
