Melissa McCarthy Posts Hilarious Response to Streisand’s Ozempic Quip


In case you missed it the first time around, Melissa McCarthy is not at all mad at Barbra Streisand for that Ozempic comment. Just a few days after a TMZ photographer asked McCarthy how she felt about Streisand suggesting the comedian might have taken the weight-loss drug — “I think Barbra is a treasure and I love her” she said — McCarthy made it crystal clear that it’s no harm, no foul.

“The takeaway — Barbra Streisand knows I exist? She reached out to me. And she thought I looked good. I win the day,” McCarthy said in an Instagram post on Wednesday in which she’s wore a floral gown and matching headband in front of a frond-covered wall while holding up a magazine with vintage images of the singer/actress on the cover.

The post, captioned “@barbrastreisand fan club members only!!! [four heart emoji],” elicited a string of hand clap emoji from musical satirist Randy Rainbow, and a “love it” from comedian Fortune Feimster, as well as a supportive “You DO win!” from Broadway icon Kristin Chenoweth. There were also supportive comments from Rosie O’Donnell and actors Richard E. Grant, Sharon Stone, Elizabeth Banks and Elizabeth Perkins, among others.

The playful back-and-forth began when McCarthy posted two pics on Instagram on Monday taken at the Pastels Center Theatre Group gala with Hairspray director Adam Shankman. “Pastels only to honor the incredible @matthewbourne13 at the @ctgla gala last night with this fella @adamshankman !!” she wrote in the caption. “Thiiiiis much closer to my dream of dancing on stage 💃🏻💚.”

Streisand, 82, perhaps thinking she was sliding into McCarthy’s DMs and not making a public comment, wrote, “Give him my regards did you take Ozempic?” Diabetes drug Ozempic has been repurposed as an anti-obesity treatment that has exploded in popularity and led to a parlor game in which people speculate on which suddenly slimmer stars might be taking the medicine off-label.

Streisand quickly deleted the comment and apologized on X, writing “OMG – 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. She looked fantastic! I just wanted to pay her a compliment. I forgot the world is reading!”

McCarthy sang a duet on the Annie Get Your Gun tune “Anything You Can Do (I Can Do Better),” on Streisand’s 2016 Encore: Movie Partners Sing Broadway album. Since then, Streisand has frequently commented on McCarthy’s posts.
