Seriously? In an uncalled for, extremely cruel moment, Fox anchor Chris Wallace fat-shamed Kelly Clarkson during a radio interview on Friday, April 4. Instead of talking politics, the Fox News Sunday host began discussing the singer’s weight on The Mike Gallagher Show.
Completely off topic, the men began to randomly discuss Little Caesars’ bacon-wrapped crust pizza and fat-shaming. But before Wallace could say his piece, Gallagher was first to bring up the American Idol alum.
“Have you seen Kelly Clarkson? You know the singer, Kelly Clarkson? Holy cow, did she blow up,” Gallagher said, via Mediate.
Wallace paused for a moment, and replied: “Really? Do we want to talk about some of your friends? Kelly Clarkson’s got a lovely voice.” He continued: “She could stay off the deep dish pizza for a little while.”
Sadly, this isn’t the first time Clarkson, 32, has been criticized for her weight following her pregnancy with daughter River Rose, whom she welcomed with husband Brandon Blackstock in June 2014. Last month, British TV personality Katie Hopkins said that Clarkson had eaten her backup singers.
Clarkson responded to the ruthless comments during The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Friday. “I love that people think [the topic] is new. Like, welcome to the past 13 years,” she said, shrugging off the insults. “I yo-yo. Sometimes I’m more fit and I get into kickboxing and hardcore, and then sometimes I don’t and go, ‘Nope, I’d rather have wine!'”
