Alyssa Milano Addresses Jay Mohr's Fat Jokes
"@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," Milano tweeted at the comic. "You're all lovely. Thank you for your kind words. #Appreciative," she later added to her followers.
What exactly did Mohr say for a laugh? “[Alyssa] was one of the presenters,” he said, referring to their joint attendance at the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Awards gala on Dec. 6 in Las Vegas. “She's very tiny, in height…It seems like she had a baby and said, ‘I don't really give a s–t'…I read it on her gut."
"Somebody sat in the director's chair and was not wearing Spanx and I was like, 'Jesus Christ,’” he added.
