Streisand quickly apologized for the comments. She released a statement about the situation, “I went on Instagram to see the photos we'd posted of the beautiful flowers I'd received for my birthday.

The apology didn't cut it for Simmons.

On Facebook, he wrote, "I love Melissa McCarthy…. I have seen every one of her movies. A famous legendary singer, B.S., made a remark about her weight loss…and was asking if she had used a popular weight loss shot. What a question."

He added, "I apologize to Melissa for these remarks. And by the way, Melissa you look fabulous!"

For her part, McCarthy was asked about the Instagram comment while out in LA this week. She said she loved Streisand and harbored no ill feelings toward her.
