Comedian and actor Jay Mohr recently criticized actress Alyssa Milano’s weight during a radio interview after they both attended the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Awards in early December. Milano responded via Twitter and seemed to take a “kill with kindness” approach.
It all started when Mohr said she had a “gut” during a radio interview, calling her “Melissa Milano” and “Melissa what’s-her-name.”
“She was one of the presenters. ... She’s very tiny. In height. It seems like she had a baby and said, ‘I don’t really give a s—’ ... I read it on her gut,” he said, Daily News reports. He didn’t stop there, saying, “Somebody sat in the director’s chair and was not wearing Spanx and I was like, ‘Jesus Christ.’”
Since then, Milano has responded via Twitter, writing, “@jaymohr37 So sorry you felt the need to publicly fat-shame me. Be well and God Bless. Please send my love to your beautiful wife.”
