Twitter and Facebook have turned on Jay Mohr who made fun of Alyssa Milano's weight even though she attributes any weight gain simply to having gave birth. He said on the radio, "...she had a baby and doesn't care. I read it on her gut..."Alyssa responded on Twitter in a passive/aggressive manner, "I'm sorry you felt the need to publicly fat-shame me. Be well and God bless. Please send my love to your beautiful wife." A seemingly perfect reply. But, Alyssa's tweet was equally cruel knowing Jay Morh's wife had facial plastic surgery and took a public beating for the hideous results of her now deformed looking face. Jay's wife

Jay Mohr replied on Facebook today with a heartfelt apology.

Re: Alyssa Milano.
I am VERY sorry. Comedians have a hole on their insides that can only be filled by generating constant content that is, many times, improvised in the moment. Unfortunately, in rare instances, it causes irreparable harm. I had thought in that improvisational moment (incorrectly), that the incongruousness of my statements, when held up to the light of how beautiful she is, would have been funny. IT WASN’T. Knowing that Alyssa (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. I will not make excuses for what I said--it lacked class and dignity--and I regret that I ever said it. Although I immediately removed that segment from my podcast, it still doesn’t change the results. I know full well how much words can hurt people, having seen my wife get destroyed by the tabloids, and I am embarrassed that I didn't think before I spoke. Alyssa is an extraordinarily beautiful person—both inside and out—and I am truly ashamed of the words that I used. I didn't reply to her comments via Twitter because I didn't want to draw more attention to something as serious as this. Alyssa is a mother, a wife, an actress, and a class act that should always be celebrated. I am SO sorry. Sometimes comedians go to far. I went to far. I cannot change what I said, but I can assure you that my heart is broken that I hurt her. With the utmost sincerity, Jay Mohr
