Big Bang Theory star Mayim Bialik has clapped back at a follower who found it appropriate to remark on the size of her chest.
The exchange came after the 43-year-old posted a photo of herself on Instagram posing alongside Pokémon character Pikachu.
While Mayim joked about her T-shirt being stained, one ‘fan’s’ mind was elsewhere.
“A bit bustier than I thought,” he commented.
Many of Bialik’s followers were quick to call out the inappropriate remark — though one commenter joked that “maybe he was talking about the Pikachu.”
“What a ridiculous comment,” one person complained.
“Dude why?” added another, while one sarcastically shot back that it was “real respectful.”
Mayim, who identifies as a feminist, also gave a deadpan response to the comment about her chest.
“Thanks so much for noticing,” the star quipped. “It’s the most important thing about me.”
Her fans praised her for speaking out.
“This clap back is one of the many reasons why I love you!!” read one comment.
“Just when I thought you couldn’t be any cooler — you post this epic clapback!” a fan added. “Happy Mother’s Day!!! You are awesome!”
“What’s sad is he probably meant it as a compliment,” suggested another commenter. “Don’t think most men get it.”
As it happens, another Mayim T-shirt stirred up a different kind of controversy over the weekend.
Some followers complained after the actress posted a photo of herself wearing a “Phenomenal Mother” top to show solidarity for migrant mothers.
“Going to have to agree to disagree on this one dear lady,” one posted.
“Not when they are law-breakers,” another critic wrote.
“You should wear a shirt that says ‘Supporting Law-Breakers’ or ‘Above the Law.’ They are not and need to do it the lawful way.”
