Dancer Karina Smirnoff tripped over partner Ralph Macchio’s coat on Monday’s “Dancing With the Stars.”

After the incident, she tweeted, “Thank u all so much for ur kind words and support!” She continued, “It means a world to us! And thank u for believing in us! Love u.”

Despite the incident, they scored a solid 24 out of 30 points. However, Smirnoff told People that it “was disappointing, because it was such an awesome routine and Ralph was doing such an awesome job. I think the floor is jinxed.”

She added, “I really hope we get to do the encore dance Tuesday. That would be my way to get redemption.”
