Barbra Streisand has left fans shocked after asking actress Melissa McCarthy a very personal question on whether she takes Ozempic.

Ozempic is a popular injectable medication that is intended for people with Type 2 diabetes. It is the brand name for the drug semaglutide, which in recent times has become a hugely popular means of weight loss, particularly among the rich and famous.

While Ozempic use is hardly a secret, fans were left shocked after iconic singer and actress Barbra Streisand left a comment on one of Melissa McCarthy’s Instagram posts straight up asking her if she takes it.

McCarthy shared a picture of herself dressed up at a gala with a friend, in honour of the famous musical director Matthew Bourne.

In Streisand’s since-deleted comment on the post, she wrote: “Give him my regards did you take Ozempic?”

It didn’t take long for fans to criticise Streisand for not only the incredibly personal question but for asking it in a very public manner.

One fan commented: “Babs. No, honey. Just no.”

Another said: “Rude, Barbra.”

A screen grab of her comment was shared on the Instagram account Comments By Celebs, where discourse over the incident continued as people were left stunned by the audacity.

Someone wrote: “Babs with the Facebook Auntie antics.”

“Babs giving major boomer energy here,” another argued.

One person pointed out: “Omg Babs, you can’t just ask people if they’re on Ozempic.”

Someone else said: “I feel like this was meant to be a DM…”

Plastic surgeons have recently warned about an Ozempic crisis sweeping through Hollywood which is leaving celebrities with saggy skin, gaunt cheeks and sunken eyes.
