Undoubtedly, this public controversy involving the two of them is quite surprising. Hours after the infidelity reports surfaced on social media, Kaitlin Olson responded to them. Instead of directly getting to the point, she decided to have a little bit of fun. On Twitter, she wrote, “It was me who had the affair. But it was not with someone from Wales”.

“It was with a whale. I’ve always loved whales. They’re the bosses of the ocean and I’m attracted to power. We ask for privacy as we navigate this difficult time”. While confusing the fanbase, these witty words also brought a smile to everybody’s face. Just minutes after Olson posted the tweet, McElhenney added to the drama. He definitely intended on backing his long-time partner.
