Late night host George Lopez on Thursday apologized for a joke implying Dancing with the Stars‘ Kirstie Alley is a pig, and RadarOnline.com has all the details for you.
“I misjudged the joke,” Lopez tweeted. “No malice was intended and I apologize to Kirstie.”
After Lopez made his apology, Kirstie Alley tweeted: “take life as lightly as u can and then move on …even u George ….u are forgiven…..:)…. “
On Tuesday’s Lopez Tonight, Lopez said, “She did a nice job,” after showing a clip of Kirstie dancing with pro partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy. “Her little hooves tapping away.”
He then did a play on the classic nursery rhyme, This Little Piggy Goes to Market, saying, “Before the show she went to the market. And then she had roast beef. And this is her going all the way home,” before playing a clip of a pig squealing “wheeeee” while riding in a car.
Alley quickly responded: “lol…a drunk pig…hehe,” and later tweeted, “Don’t worry about George’s comments… just remember what happens to the big bad, drunk woolf…falls in a boiling pot of vodka. Piggy laughs.”
Lopez made weight-related cracks during Bristol Palin‘s run on the ABC hit last autumn, during an interview with one of the show’s judges, Carrie Ann Inaba. He asked Inaba how Bristol had managed to gain 20 pounds since the beginning of the season.

“I don’t know, we don’t weigh them in,” Inaba said, to which Lopez replied, “I mean what are they waxing the floor there with? Corn oil?”
