When news first broke that ABC would air a Dirty Dancing remake, we shuddered at the thought. You don't mess with a classic -- especially not one that most girls in the late '80s and '90s grew up watching as default sleepover viewing.

Here, tweets that summed up the experience that was tuning into ABC's cringeworthy version of Dirty Dancing.
