Dancing with the Stars contestant Kirstie Alley used Twitter to respond to a crass comment from comedian George Lopez, who likened the 60-year-old actress to a pig on his TBS talk show.

“Don’t worry about George’s comments,” Alley said on Twitter (she has more than 740,000 followers). “Just remember what happens to the big bad, drunk woolf …falls in a boiling pot of vodka. Piggy laughs.”

During his show Wednesday, Lopez said Alley “did a nice job, her little hooves tapping away. Before the show, she went to the market, and then she had roast beef and this is her going all the way home!” he said, before cutting to a squealing pig from a GEICO commercial.

Alley made light of her size during Monday’s premiere of Stars. At one point she joked that if anyone asked her to haul ass, “it would take two trips.”

Ewe’s not fat, ewe’s fluffy! So follow me @EWLynette

    How loathesome of Lopez. And a nice response from Kirstie. Is he jealous because she is getting more airtime than he is?

    • biggie

      hey lopez, now i know why i don’t like you. you’re a douchebag. let’s all joke how you’re a loser drunk who almost died of kidney failure..

      • Kat

        To be fair, the kidney thing was supposedly a genetic condition. I don’t know if he exacerbated it with heavy drinking, but it apparently wasn’t caused by drinking alone.

      • lynn

        His wife gave him her kidney. He think her by getting a divorce.

      • Wes Jones

        And a tendency to be heavy is not a genetic condition? And let’s see how the load-mouth gets around when he is 10 years older; or better yet, let’s see him go on Dancing!!!

      • Tony

        @biggie and @chris you’re both fatties aren’t you? I have no sympathy for fatties while obese Americans stuff themselves, millions die from hunger daily. Don’t be jealous Lopez has a show and you have nothing

  • Sarah

    Kirstie’s fat joke was funny. George’s was just plain mean.

    • Berk

      Yeah, it was harsh. Damn. Did they have an ongoing feud I’m not aware of? I mean, why say that?

    • dee dee1

      not surprised to hear he said this, coming from a man who drools over female audience members or guests. Take a look at yourself George, not so thin yourself…

  • Me

    BREAKING NEWS….. Comedian makes a joke at the expense of a celebrity, like thats never happened before.

    • ok


      • OK

        I have been trying to post but it will not let me

      • OK

        So he can be mean about her weight, but I can not be mean about his race???

      • OK

        This site is completely one sided!!!!

      • barry

        No racial jokes people.

  • Tresix

    Will he make fun of the other contestants too? That would only be fair.

    • Sheli

      I think Lopez was a jerk for the comment, but to be fair, he made a toupee joke about Ralph Macchio, too.

      • jo

        he also called Wendy Williams a man, not that anyone cares.

  • Beverley

    Clearly, if you’re going to make Kirstie Alley jokes, it should be about her Scientology and the beliefs that cult has.

  • Maxine

    use to enjoy watching resorting to simply being hurtful? lost all respect for him…Im done..

  • Rach

    Why make fun of her because of her weight? She’s continued to struggle with eating and keeps on trying. These comedians only make fun of overweight women and not overweight men. Lopez is no model of fitness himself.

    • Zoe

      “Lopez is no model of fitness himself.” Exactly what I thought when I heard about this. Pot, meet kettle.

  • Keith

    Yeah, I mean, this ain’t the first time a comedian has made a fat joke. Won’t be the last. I just kind of marvel that people think Lopez is funny. I have tried to watch his show and it’s painful. Guy has the most infantile sense of humor on TV.

    • JackieB

      But it went way too far, it was mean-spirited. Glad I don’t watch his show (and I won’t).

  • topoopon

    I’m pretty sure Conan’s been doing this for years.

    • AB

      I’m pretty sure Conan hasn’t stooped this low yet. I like Lopez ok, but this is pretty mean. He’s lost me as a viewer.

  • Grandma

    To degrade a woman, with such classless mean spirit, reflects on his upbringing. If he thinks this qualifies as a joke…he needs to look up the defination of the word. If someone spoke this way of one of your family members….how would you feel? A real gentleman does not speak this way of a lady. Shame on You!

  • sils71

    Even with some extra weight, Kirstie is MUCH better-looking than George Lopez could ever hope to be. That guy is not only physically ugly, but an even more disgusting human being. And a total waste of a perfectly good kidney.

    • Larry

      Kirstie is a big, sexy fox. George would be a jerk in any ethnic group. You can not let him pass because he is Latino. Some people will cry racist because they can`t come up with a valid defense of El Gran Jamon.

  • Sooze

    He went on way too long insulting her,especially since Kirstie did very well on the show. So there!! The best revenge is doing well.

  • Irene

    George. The Spanish community just disowned you. You classless douchbag

    • laura

      The hispanic community never owned him in the first place. His whole schitck is to perpetuate stereotypes for “laughs”. The guy is simply not funny.

  • Lyn

    Eh, she’s an easy target, and certainly not the first chubby contestant to be degraded like this. But the fact is, she really did a great job! Probably lots better than Lopez could do (or me, either).

    • Rio

      She did great! One of the most entertaining dances I have seen in a while on that show (and let’s hope this season will be fun and not painful!)

  • Buffy Freak

    Kirstie Alley fat jokes are almost as tired as George Lopez’s stand up act.
