Jay Mohr engaged in some decidedly nasty fat bashing aimed at Alyssa Milano after they both attended the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Champion Awards event in Las Vegas on Dec. 6.
He said shortly after hosting the event, “She was one of the presenters… She’s very tiny. 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 Ch***t.’”
After recently hearing about the mean-spirited diss, the ‘Mistresses’ celebrity tweeted, “@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.”
Mohr promptly responded, “@alyssamilano She’s stunning. I mistakenly thought the absurdity of what I was saying would have been taken as a joke. #fail”
His wife, actress Nikki Cox, guest-blogged on her husband’s website in November and ironically pointed out that people can be so cruel. She wrote, “As a culture we have become incredibly mean and snarky. We’ve become cruel and malicious and we keep trying to pass it off as a big joke.” Ouch!
