He then referred to her as “Melissa what’s-her-name,” adding, “Somebody sat in the director’s chair and was not wearing Spanx and I was like, ‘Jesus Christ.’”

Milano, whose son Milo is now 2, then came up with a classy response on Twitter, when went viral. “So sorry you felt the need to publicly fat-shame me,” she wrote. “Be well and God Bless. Please send my love to your beautiful wife.”

People notes that Mohr did finally send an apology on Thursday. “She's stunning,” he tweeted. “I mistakenly thought the absurdity of what I was saying would have [been] taken as a joke. #fail.”
