Fox News’ Chris Wallace Apologizes to Kelly Clarkson Over Weight Comment
Chris Wallace is saying sorry for his comments over Kelly Clarkson's weight.
"I sincerely apologize to Kelly Clarkson for my offensive comment," the Fox News anchor said in a statement to Us Weekly. "I admire her remarkable talent and that should have been the focus of any discussion about her."
The public apology comes only two days after Wallace and radio host Mike Gallagher discussed the Piece By Piece singer's size on Gallagher's show on April 3. After The Mike Gallagher Show host called Clarkson out for gaining weight, he asked Wallace what his thoughts regarding the topic. While the TV journalist refrained from responding at first, he eventually put in his two cents about her size and possible eating habits.
“She could stay off the deep dish pizza for a little while,” Wallace said during the radio show.
While Wallace has said sorry, Clarkson has yet to make any kind of statement about what happened over the weekend.
As previously reported, the "Heartbreak Song" artist is no stranger to fat-shaming comments. British TV personality Katie Hopkins not only made fun of her weight on Twitter but also continued to insult Clarkson further on Access Hollywood.
Despite the negative commentary, Clarkson has managed to keep her head up and not let this faze her.
