Barbra Streisand Deletes Instagram Comment Asking Melissa McCarthy About Ozempic Use

Melissa McCarthy turned heads in a colorful ensemble as she brushed off the Barbra Streisand Ozempic drama at the Unfrosted premiere in Hollywood on Tuesday.

Streisand came under fire Monday when she bluntly asked Melissa McCarthy in an Instagram comment whether she had used Ozempic to lose weight.

The “Bridesmaids” star, 53, shared a carousel of images of her and choreographer Adam Shankman outside the Centre Theatre Group Gala in which she wore a pastel green blazer over a similarly colored dress that featured plenty of tulle.

“Pastels only to honor the incredible @matthewbourne13 at the @ctgla gala last night with this fella @adamshankman !! Thiiiiis much closer to my dream of dancing on stage,” she captioned the post Monday.

The “Funny Girl” star, 82, responded in the comments, “Give him my regards did you take Ozempic?”

Streisand ultimately deleted her question — but not before users could weigh in with commentary of their own.

“Babs. No, honey. Just no,” responded one follower.

“Major boomer aunt with wine and an ipad energy,” quipped another.

“Babs typing away on IG like my elderly mom telling me she text someone something, and me explaining: ‘No, mom, you wrote it on FB on your wall for all to see,’” added a third.

However, others defended Streisand from the criticism, noting she would likely “never” try to embarrass McCarthy.

“I believe she meant that for a private question. Cant any of you show her some grace !!” wrote a Streisand devotee.

“Babs is 82 kinda par for the course, old people do not know how s–t works nor do they give a fk,” added another.

The “Gilmore Girls” alum never answered Streisand’s comment.

McCarthy has been candid about her yo-yoing weight for years, having previously said she’s been “every size on the planet.”

The comedian once lost 70 pounds by turning to an all-liquid diet, which she’s said she’d “never” do again.

In 2015, she lost 50 pounds by changing her mindset not to be so obsessed with her figure.

“I truly stopped worrying about it,” she told Life & Style at the time.

“I think there’s something to kinda loosening up and not being so nervous and rigid about it that, bizarrely, has worked.”
