| by Michael Allen

During an appearance today on the "The Mike Gallagher Show," Fox News host Chris Wallace joked with the radio host about singer Kelly Clarkson's weight.

Gallagher and Wallace riffed about fat shaming and pizza, but turned the discussion to Clarkson's body, noted MediaMatters.org (video below).

"Listen, don't fat shame me," said Gallagher. "You do a lot of fat shaming. That's the new phrase now. Fat shaming. Have you seen Kelly Clarkson? You know the singer, Kelly Clarkson? Holy cow, did she blow up."

Later in the program, Wallace mentioned that Clarkson had a "lovely voice," but added, "She could, she could stay off the deep dish pizza for a little while, but she has a great voice."

Wallace's Fox News colleague Greta Van Susteren fired back at him on her blog, "This ‘guy snickering’ about her weight is obnoxious. He should apologize."
