Taking to Instagram on Sunday, the “GLOW” actress posted a photo with the “This Is Us” star at the 2018 SAG Awards, after Metz, 38, was accused of calling Brie, 36, a “bitch” during a Golden Globes pre-show.
“Nothing but love for @chrissymetz!! Rumors can’t keep us down!” Brie shared on her Instagram story.
Metz ignited an internet firestorm following a pre-show interview with Missy Pyle and AJ Gibson, when a camera panned to Brie on the red carpet with Metz’s mic appearing to pick up her saying, “She’s such a bitch.”
Vanity Fair’s Nicole Sperling had told Brie of Metz’s alleged comment, with Brie responding, “But why? I know her. I saw her on the red carpet and I told her how beautiful she looked.”
Metz denied the allegations, tweeting, “It’s terribly unfortunate anyone would think much less run a story that was completely fabricated! I adore Alison and would never say a bad word about her, or anyone! I sure hope she knows my heart.”
Pre-show co-host Simpson also told Page Six that he believes Metz called Brie a “babe,” not a “bitch.”
“I was standing on stage with Chrissy and thought she called Alison a babe,” Gibson said, via email. “Chrissy is one of the kindest women in Hollywood and is so supportive of other talented women.”
