Dancing with the Stars contestant Kirstie Alley used Twitter to respond to a crass comment from comedian George Lopez, who likened the 60-year-old actress to a pig on his TBS talk show.

“Don’t worry about George’s comments,” Alley said on Twitter (she has more than 740,000 followers). “Just remember what happens to the big bad, drunk woolf …falls in a boiling pot of vodka. Piggy laughs.”

During his show Wednesday, Lopez said Alley “did a nice job, her little hooves tapping away. Before the show, she went to the market, and then she had roast beef and this is her going all the way home!” he said, before cutting to a squealing pig from a GEICO commercial.

Alley made light of her size during Monday’s premiere of Stars. At one point she joked that if anyone asked her to haul ass, “it would take two trips.”
