Jay Mohr is not winning any new fans when he dissed Alyssa Milano, but now he’s taking to twitter for an apology!
“She’s very tiny, in height…. It seems like she had had a baby and said, ‘I don’t really give a s–––’ … I read it on her gut,” Mohr, 43, said about Milano’s appearance at the Nascar Spring Cup Series Awards gala he hosted in Las Vegas on Dec. 6. “Somebody sat in the director’s chair was not wearing Spanx and I was like ‘Jesus Christ!’ ” he continued.
So hurtful, right?! The above pic is from the event, and Milano is looking fabulous, don’t you think? The actress, who has a 2 year old son named Milo, took the high road. “So sorry you felt the need to publicly fat-shame me. Be well and God Bless. Please send my love to your beautiful wife,” the Mistresses star replied.
After fans rallied to her defense, Milano Tweeted her gratitude. “You’re all lovely. Thank you for your kind words. #Appreciative.” And of course, Mohr finally said SOMETHING in response to his very unkind words: “She’s stunning. I mistakenly thought the absurdity of what I was saying would have been taken as a joke. #fail,” he Tweeted.
Ugh. Maybe people like Jay Mohr will be a little less hasty to scrutinize the looks of their fellow entertainers, and work on positive praise!
