Fox News' Wallace Mocks Kelly Clarkson's Weight: 'Stay Off Deep-Dish Pizza'

Fox News' Chris Wallace is apologizing for mocking Kelly Clarkson's weight during an appearance on 'The Mike Gallagher Show'.

Wallace made the comments after the host asked: "Have you seen Kelly Clarkson? You know the singer, Kelly Clarkson? Holy cow, did she blow up."

"Really? Do we want to talk about some of your friends? Kelly Clarkson's got a lovely voice. She could stay off the deep dish pizza for a little while," said Wallace about the 32-year-old singer and mother.

The discussion prompted criticism from various circles including Fox News anchor Greta Van Susteren herself.

"This 'guy snickering' about her weight is obnoxious," she wrote on her website. "He should apologize."

Wallace took the cue and released a statement that read: "I sincerely apologize to Kelly Clarkson for my offensive comment. I admire her remarkable talent and that should have been the focus of any discussion about her."

Clarkson also responded to comments during a taping of 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show'.

"I love that people think it is new," she said. "Like, welcome to the past 13 years. I yo-yo. Sometimes I'm more fit and I get into kickboxing and hardcore, and then sometimes I don't and go, 'Nope, I'd rather have wine!'"
