Speaking on The Real (via People), Matt said that body shaming is “never something that I condone or stand for.”

“It’s just a constant reminder that you need to be smart about the people you surround yourself with,” he said. “And those moments when you’re in sports and people are trying to say things to you to throw things off your game, it’s sad that someone would think saying something like that about a woman that I was dating would deter me from what I was trying to do.”

He added, “Who is he to comment on someone’s body? It’s such a low blow for any man to try and take a dig at something like that. That’s not my character and that’s not what I’m about. It’s a shame that that’s even associated with what was going on. I apologize on his behalf. I don’t know if you’ll get it from him, but that’s not something I support or stand for.”

For her part, Victoria responded to Matt’s friend’s comment by dropping a bikini pic, which she captioned “Tell me again how my body doesn’t look so good?”

TBD on if this video comes up in the Women Tell All, but they’re filming the special any moment now—and Victoria is presumably going to make an appearance.
