Alyssa Milano is not happy with actor Jay Mohr. The two both attended a NASCAR event in December, and Mohr reportedly made some pretty harsh comments about the Mistresses actress.

Mohr appeared on a radio show after the meeting. According to NBC News, the Today Show‘s Willie Geist said Mohr reportedly commented that “Alyssa was small in stature, but that she’d put on weight or something like that.”

The New York Daily News said that Mohr went even further, adding, “She was one of the presenters. She’s very tiny, in height. It seems like she had a baby and said, ‘I don’t really give a s***.’ I read it on her gut.”

Reports also had Mohr saying, “Somebody sat in the director’s chair and was not wearing Spanx and I was like, ‘Jesus Christ.'”

Pretty much everyone felt Mohr was out of line. Baby weight is nothing to be made fun of. But even so, Milano is tiny, plus she had her baby more than two years ago (in August of 2011).

The actress, who is also currently hosting Project Runway All-Stars, answered Mohr through a tweet, in just about the classiest way she could.

Al Roker commented on Mohr’s comments on Today, saying Mohr may not have realized what he was saying.

“He’s a comedian, so I’m sure he didn’t mean to hurt her,” Roker said. “But sometimes you get on a roll and people are laughing and you just take it up to the next level, and before you know it, some feelings are hurt.”

The controversy finally made its way to Mohr, who responded on Twitter on Thursday.

Mohr may have a point, since what he said was pretty absurd. It’s not clear whether the two actors have officially made up, but Mohr may have just lost some fans.
