Barbra Streisand Apologizes to Melissa McCarthy Over Ozempic Question

Barbra Streisand took to social media to apologize to actress Melissa McCarthy for comments the legendary artist and actress made on an Instagram post.

Earlier this week, Streisand commented on a photo that McCarthy shared on Instagram of her and choreographer Matthew Bourne. In her comment, Streisand asked McCarthy if she had been taking Ozempic, also known as semaglutide, an injectable diabetes medicine that has become extremely popular for its ability to make people lose weight quickly.

Fans quickly flocked to the comment and shared it across social media, with many wondering if Streisand was mocking McCarthy. On Tuesday, Streisand took to Twitter to clarify, and said she meant nothing but compliments for the actress.

“[Oh my god] – I went on Instagram to see the photos we’d posted of the beautiful flowers I’d received for my birthday! Below them was a photo of my friend Melissa McCarthy who I sang with on my Encore album,” said Streisand. “She looked fantastic! I just wanted to pay her a compliment. I forgot the world is reading!”

McCarthy forgives Streisand following Instagram viral comments

Talking to TMZ, McCarthy said that she forgives Streisand, and doesn’t hold any ill-will toward the legend. “I think Barbra is a treasure and I love her,” said McCarthy according to TMZ.

Both McCarthy and Streisand do have a history of working together, with McCarthy appearing on Streisand’s 2016 album Encore, as Barbra mentioned in her post. McCarthy is currently set to star in the Netflix comedy film Unfrosted, which is set to release on May 3, 2024, on Netflix.
