Jay Mohr, if you’re trying to win the award for Jackass of the Year, you’re well on your way. The so-called comedian recently appeared at an awards gala with Project Runway All-Stars host Alyssa Milano, and immediately afterward made himself look like a ginormous asshat when he went on a radio program and mocked her post-baby body.WTF, right? Alyssa, however, responded with her usual grace and, instead of calling him out for his douchebaggery, opted to shower him with kindness.
It all started when the two attended the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Awards event last month in Las Vegas. Afterward, Jay was a guest on a radio program, where he repeatedly referred to Alyssa as “Melissa Milano,” obviously comparing her to the big and beautiful Melissa McCarthy, who, let’s be honest here, is a million times funnier than Jay Mohr. The married father of one then went on to say things like “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,” and “Somebody sat in the director’s chair and was not wearing Spanx and I was like, ‘Jesus Christ.’”
Dick move, Jay. Seriously, what is wrong with you?
Instead of firing back at him with insults of her own, however, Alyssa did the classy thing and took the high road. On Christmas Day, the Project Runway All-Stars host 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.”BOOM.It’s short, sweet, and ultimately the winning blow because now, everyone thinks Jay Mohr is an a-hole and Alyssa Milano is a saint. And public opinion is the biggest factor here.
And just to be clear – Alyssa looks amazing. I could spend an hour ranting about how unfair it is that new moms, and women in general, are constantly under public scrutiny to be slim, fit and beautiful, while men are not subjected to the same treatment. But I won’t.
Instead, tell us what YOU think about Jay Mohr’s comments about Alyssa Milano? Is he a complete moron or what? Sound off in the comments!
