Alyssa Milano Accepts Jay Mohr’s ApologyBy: Daryl Nelson - January 5, 2014
It looks like the back-and-forth between Alyssa Milano and Jay Mohr has finally come to an end, now that Milano accepted the comedian’s apology.
“Thank you. Apology accepted,” Tweeted the actress, after Mohr said he didn’t know that his joke about Milano’s weight would be received so negatively. “I mistakenly thought the absurdity of what I was saying would have been taken as a joke,” he wrote.
He later gave a longer apology on his website. “It wasn’t funny,” he said. “Knowing that Alyssa, as well as her family, friends, fans and especially her husband, heard things that were hurtful from my mouth crushed me. She has always been one of the kindest, most caring and beautiful people this town has ever seen.”
Apparently, Mohr’s wife has also been the victim of negative comments from the media and other folks, so he should have known better, he said.
“I know full well how much words can hurt people, having seen my wife get destroyed by the tabloids,” said the 43-year old, who’s also one of the stars in the up and coming movie “Dumbbells.” “I am embarrassed that I didn’t think before I spoke. Alyssa is an extraordinarily beautiful person, both inside and out.”
The apology comes after Mohr said some cruel remarks about Milano’s weight, when both attended the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Awards in Las Vegas. “She’s very tiny. In height,” he said. “It seems like she had a baby and said ‘I don’t really give a s—, I read it on her gut.”
From there, the “Mistresses” star decided not to retaliate in a mean way, however, she did respond through her Twitter account. “So sorry you felt the need to publicly fat-shame me. Be well and God Bless. Please send my love to your beautiful wife. You’re all lovely,” she wrote. Now that’s classy, don’t you think?
