Last night at the Golden Globes This Is Us star Chrissy Metz was accused on calling GLOW star Alison Brie a bitch on the red carpet.
While doing red carpet press, the presenters who were talking to Metz segway to their next interview with Brie by asking Metz if she knows the other actress. Then the camera cuts to Brie and two other interviewers.
Metz thought her mic was off and begins repeating what she last said about Brie. Then Metz off-camera goes, “She’s such a b…” Many believe Metz calls Brie a bitch.

This soundbite blew up and spread like wildfire. Before the Golden Globes even started there was drama! An actress called another actress the B-word! The scandal!
News that Metz called Brie a bitch eventually reached her ears. The actress cleared the air and tweeted that she never said “a bad word about her.”
“It’s terribly unfortunate anyone would think much less run a story that was completely fabricated!” Metz tweeted. “I adore Alison and would never say a bad word about her, or anyone! I sure hope she knows my heart.”

Brie shared a similar sentiment on her Instagram story. “Nothing but love for @ChrissyMetz!! Rumors can’t keep us down!”
But there was drama before the actresses got to this point of lovey-dovey apology social media posts.
According to the L.A. Times, Metz learned about her unsavory comment while scrolling through Twitter while at the Golden Globes. She told L.A. Times reporter Amy Kaufman, “They asked me if I knew Alison Brie and I said, ‘Oh, Boy, do I.’ I know her, and love her.”
“I don’t talk like that,” Metz continued. “I would never say anything like that about anyone. I’m gutted.”
Metz went on to say that she doesn’t have Brie’s number and haven’t seen her yet inside the ballroom. “We only follow each other on Instagram,” Metz added, “and I dont’ want to ruin her night. She has a huge night. I’m just so upset.”
Brie was confused about the rumors as well. When asked by a reporter about the incident Bri responded, “But why?” she asked. “I know her. I saw her on the carpet and I told her how beautiful she looked.”
Just asked Alison Brie about this. She had not heard about Metz’s comments and seemed very confused by the entire matter. “But why?,” she asked. “I know her. I saw her on the carpet and I told her how beautiful she looked.” https://t.co/B7zmEB009s

Thankfully the two addressed the rumor and now there are no hard feelings. Many people believe Metz called Brie a “babe” and not a “bitch.” What do you think she said?
