Lopez apologizes for pig joke, but Alley fires back

AP, Getty Images file / Today

Remember that pig-related dig late night host George Lopez delivered after Kirstie Alley's “Dancing With the Stars” debut? The one where he commented on the star's “little hooves” and made other piggy comparisons? Well, Lopez certainly hasn’t forgotten about it. After making headlines for his questionable choice of material and getting slammed by the actress herself, it seems he’s had a change of heart.

“I misjudged the joke,” the “Lopez Tonight” leader recently tweeted.  “No malice was intended and I apologize to Kirstie.”

But Lopez's public about-face isn’t welcome, as far as Alley’s concerned.  On Friday morning she responded, this time with a low-blow of her own.

“@georgelopez I don't need or want ur apology,” Alley wrote back Friday morning. “I want your kidney dude..on behalf of ur X and all the women uv insulted...give it back.”


For those unfamiliar with Lopez’s health history, the comedian received a kidney transplant in 2005 from then-wife Ann Lopez. The couple announced their plans to divorce in September of 2010.

Updated at 10:07 a.m. PT: And as soon as the feud picked up, it seems to have ended. "Take life as lightly as u can and then move on ...even u George ....u are forgiven," Alley tweeted.
