  • Chrissy Metz was co-hosting a 2019 Golden Globes red carpet event on Facebook Live.
  • Some people on Twitter claimed Metz called Alison Brie a “b—-” on the carpet.
  • Metz responded and denied the claim on Twitter.
  • Brie later also commented on the reports.

Chrissy Metz says she absolutely did not call Alison Brie a “b—-” while on the 2019 Golden Globes red carpet at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills Sunday night.

The “This Is Us” star tweeted in response to reports that said she called the “Glow” star a name during a segment she was co-hosting on Facebook Live.

“It’s terribly unfortunate anyone would think much less run a story that was completely fabricated,” she wrote. “I adore Alison and would never say a bad word about her, or anyone! I sure hope she knows my heart.”

Video of the segment led some people to believe Metz called Brie a “b—-” as the camera cut away from the host.

“Here’s Chrissy Metz calling Alison Brie a ‘b—-,’ not knowing her mic is still on,” one tweet read.

But other people said the mic cut off before she said anything.

Brie responded to the report on her Instagram story.

“Nothing but love for @chrissymetz!!” she wrote. “Rumours can’t keep us down!”
