In a surprising move, the legendary singer's Instagram comment to her actress pal sparks widespread debate on body image, societal expectations and the boundaries of public discourse.

AceShowbiz - Barbra Streisand ignited a firestorm on social media after leaving a controversial comment on Melissa McCarthy's Instagram post about her appearance at a recent gala. In the post, McCarthy, 53, showcased her slimmed-down figure in a mint dress and blazer, celebrating her dream of dancing on stage.

However, Streisand wrote in the comments section of the post, "Give him my regards did you take Ozempic?" She ignited a flurry of responses from fans and celebrities alike.

Ozempic, a popular weight loss medication, has been a subject of discussion among celebrities and the public, raising concerns about the ethics of using it for non-medical purposes. McCarthy has not publicly confirmed or denied using Ozempic.

Streisand's comment sparked outrage from many users, who criticized it as rude, insensitive and reflective of Hollywood's obsession with appearances. One user commented, "Wow really! What happened to not talking about Bodies! As a mother of a daughter that's not ok we as women need to not focus on appearance."

Others defended McCarthy, emphasizing that her health should not be a concern for others and that her weight loss journey was her own business. One user stated, "Whether she did or did not is no one else's business."

Streisand's comment also highlighted the double standards faced by women in the entertainment industry. While male celebrities often go unnoticed for their weight fluctuations, women are subjected to intense scrutiny and pressure to maintain a certain appearance.

The debate extended beyond Streisand's comment, as some observers pointed out that McCarthy has been candid about her weight journey and has advocated for a more relaxed approach to body image. She has shared the challenges she faced and the mindset shift that has helped her focus on her well-being.
