UPDATE (4/5): In a statement issued to media outlets on April 5, Chris Wallace apologized for his remark. He stated: "I sincerely apologize to Kelly Clarkson for my offensive comment. I admire her remarkable talent and that should have been the focus of any discussion about her."

ORIGINAL POST:

Fox News host Greta Van Susteren called on colleague Chris Wallace to apologize for his "obnoxious" remark that singer Kelly Clarkson "could stay off the deep dish pizza."

During the April 3 edition of The Mike Gallagher Show, Gallagher asked Wallace: "Have you seen Kelly Clarkson? You know the singer, Kelly Clarkson? Holy cow, did she blow up."

Wallace remarked that "Clarkson's got a lovely voice" but "she could stay off the deep dish pizza for a little while."

Van Susteren referenced Wallace's remarks on her FoxNews.com blog -- in a post headlined, "Chris Wallace owes Kelly Clarkson an apology" -- and wrote that Wallace was being "obnoxious. He should apologize."
