Fox News host Chris Wallace has officially apologized to Kelly Clarkson following insensitive comments he made about her appearance.

When he appeared on the The Mike Gallagher Show on Friday (April 3), he mocked Clarkson's weight in an exchange with the show's host, saying, "She could stay off the deep dish pizza for a little while."

On Sunday he issued an apology to the "Heartbeat Song" singer. "I sincerely apologize to Kelly Clarkson for my offensive comment," Wallace said in a statement to Us Weekly. "I admire her remarkable talent and that should have been the focus of any discussion about her."

Clarkson has yet to respond to Wallace on social media. However, prior to his apology, Fox News anchor Greta Van Susteren took to her blog in a post titled "Chris Wallace owes Kelly Clarkson an apology."
