In case you didn’t know, talk show host George Lopez made fun of ‘Dancing With The Stars’ contestant Kirstie Alley on his show Tuesday night (March 22)… and compared the actress to a PIG!
“She did a nice job, her little hooves tapping away,” Lopez said comparing Alley to a pig. “Before the show she went to the market, then she had roast beef, and this is her going all the way home,” he continued while showing a video of a squealing pig from a recent Geico commercial.
Well, Lopez has come forward to publicly apologize to Alley… but not on his show.
On Twitter, of course!
“I misjudged the joke,” Lopez tweeted last night. “No malice was intended and I apologize to Kirstie.”
While tweeting the apology rather than delivering it on-air (which is where he spat out the original so-called joke) was actually quite fitting, as it was via Twitter that Alley finally addressed the mean-spirited dig yesterday afternoon.
“Don’t worry about George’s comments…just remember what happens to the big bad drunk woolf…falls in a boiling pot of vodka,” she wrote. “Piggy laughs.”
Kirstie Alley is a woman who has been open to the public about her battle of weight. She estimates she will lose 10 pounds on top of the 60 she already lost prior to entering the ‘DWTS’ contest.
I’m glad Kirstie was able to laugh it off and respond back to George!
