“It’s terribly unfortunate anyone would think, much less run a story that was completely fabricated!” she tweeted during the show. “I adore Alison and would never say a bad word about her, or anyone! I sure hope she knows my heart.”

The This Is Us actress was reportedly caught stating that the GLOW actress is “such a bitch” when she believed that her audio had been cut out following an interview before the awards ceremony.
The comment took place after two of the preshow’s hosts requested that Metz help them introduce their next interview with Brie. “Do you know a girl named Alison Brie?” asked AJ Gibson. “Well I hear she’s at the other end of the carpet.”
“Oh,” said Metz before the camera panned to Brie on the carpet. “I’m like, ‘Do I?'” said Metz as she continued to be heard off screen. While her comment is inaudible, one Twitter user wrote that he heard Metz call Brie “a bitch.”
Brie also responded later on Sunday with a photo of her with Metz on her Instagram story that read, “nothing but love @chrissymetz!! Rumors can’t keep us down!”
