When it comes to her brief Twitter feud with comedian Jay Mohr, “Mistresses” star Alyssa Milano’s method is to forgive but not forget.
In a new interview with “Extra” host Mario Lopez, she explained that though he may have been joking, his comments still hurt.
“Well, he made a comment that was not so nice about my weight and I called him out on Twitter about it,” she told Lopez. “I just think he was trying to make a joke and not think about it, but I heard it actually on Christmas Day and it hurt me, I was affected by it and I wanted to remind him that I’m a human being and that this hurts.”
The situation started after Milano attended a Nascar event at which Mohr was working.
“It seems like she had a baby and said, ‘I don’t really give a s***’… I read it on her gut,” he said at the time.
In response, Milano tweeted:
Mohr released a lengthy apology on his website, which can be read here, and Milano accepted his apology via social media.
