Barbra Streisand, the iconic singer and actress, found herself in the spotlight recently after leaving a comment on Melissa McCarthy’s Instagram post that garnered attention online. In response to McCarthy’s photo from the Center Theatre Group gala, Streisand had left a now-deleted comment asking about McCarthy’s use of Ozempic, a diabetes treatment medication known for its weight loss effects.

Following the circulation of screenshots of her comment, Streisand took to Instagram to address the situation directly.
