The answer to Jay Mohr’s fat-shaming of Alyssa Milano is NOT to pile on his wife

Comedian and SNL vet Jay Mohr did what countless men do when they see a beautiful woman who may not tick all of their boxes in the beauty department: he fat-shamed her. The Who’s the Boss?/Charmed star predictably responded with probably the classiest way possible: “So sorry you felt the need to publicly fat-shame me. Be well and God Bless. Please send my love to your beautiful wife.” Mohr’s wife is Nikki Cox.

Obviously, folks were pretty peeved at the comic’s swipe at Milano’s weight. The guy reportedly said, ““It seems like she had a baby and said, ‘I don’t really give a s**t’ … I read it on her gut… Somebody sat in the director’s chair and was not wearing Spanx and I was like, ‘Jesus Christ.'” Not a classy thing to do. He then later Tweeted that it was a joke, and it was our fault for not “getting” it (it’s interesting how often these comedians are dropping these super-intellectual, high-concept jokes that we all seem to not get).

But unfortunately, some of Milano’s most enthusiastic supporters decided to crap on Cox – specifically her alleged plastic surgery.

And that’s when I had to heave a huge, sad, deep, sigh.

So let me get this straight: to teach Jay Mohr that it’s wrong to crap on women’s bodies, we have to crap on his wife’s body?

Cox is a lovely woman – an intelligent and pretty actress who doesn’t deserve to be used as some sort of online martyr for her husband’s asshattery.
