Martin Short Responds To Kathie Lee's Awful Mistake With CLASS!

| Filed under: TV NewsInspiration

Martin Short not bothered by Kathie Lee Giffords mistake

Such a NICE GUY!

Martin Short could easily have been pissed off on Wednesday when Kathie Lee Gifford accidentally asked about the "successful marriage" he has with his deceased wife, but instead he acted as if it was no big deal.

Our mouths literally DROPPED when we witnessed Kathie pop the insensitive question during the interview on Today. Luckily for her, Martin kept it calm, cool, and classy and he continues to do so!

Even after Kathie embarrassed herself AGAIN by tweeting an apology to a random Twitter handle that doesn't belong to Martin Short, the Madagascar 3 star said this:

"I think that it's live television and people make mistakes and there's no ill will intended."

Take notes Hollywood! Mr. Short is what we call a CLASS ACT!

    What did anyone expect? Martin Short lost his wife of decades. An interviewer wasn't briefed, and Martin plays the hero. Of course. What would be the acceptable alternative? Yell? Stupid.

    Ok. So not to sound like an idiot, but did his wife die yesterday? Was the marriage successful? I mean yeah its tough to talk about loved one who have passed, but if the marriage was successful then that should be something to be proud of. Since as we know hollywood marriages that are successful are one in a few. It is nice that she has apologized but I dont see anything wrong with her asking him that question.

    It was a lot better then calling a teenage girl a slut or potato head huh Mario. Come to think you called a 9 year old girl slutty. and posted sexually explicit pictures of teenage girls.

    What about the comments you made about Michael Jackson when the reports first started surfacing about his death? You were saying his cardiac arrest reports were just a way for him to get out of his tour. Then when you realized it was real and he had actually just died you deleted your posts. You insulted a dead man deliberately while Kathie was simply unaware.

    I can't place when, but I believe I recall that she did this before some years ago, maybe 10 years ago, or a little longer?

    I watched him on the show and remembered his wife had passed away. He was so amazing and has handled this all with class.
