Bonnie Says: Shut Up George Lopez — Stop Comparing Kirstie Alley to a Pig!

Usually I’m a HUGE fan of yours, George Lopez but you were cruel to Kirstie Alley, when you referred to her on your show last night, March 22, as this “little piggy who goes to market!”

Listen George – since when has it been okay to make fun of a woman – or anyone for that matter – because of their weight?

Just because Kirstie has been open about her weight issues and has publicly shared her dieting and weight loss frustrations MANY times, doesn’t mean it’s ok for you to describe her as a “little piggy.”

You did it in context of supposedly complimenting her, on her impressive Cha Cha on DWTS. But I couldn’t believe the next words that came out of your mouth – “she did a nice job – her little hooves tapping away. Before the show, she went to the market,” you continued. “And then she had roast beef on the way home.”

As a final insult, you showed a pig singing, “wee, wee, wee!”

So George, what are you trying to say? That a woman shouldn’t dance publicly if she needs to lose a few pounds. That Kirstie or any overweight woman deserves to be compared to a pig?

Would you say this about a man?

And by the way George, you’re not looking so trim yourself. Would you have the courage to go on DWTS and strut your stuff?

So you know what George? Lay off Kirstie and keep your little piggy jokes to yourself?
