Karl Stefanovic stormed off the Today show live on air on Wednesday after his co-host Allison Langdon implied he was ‘fat’.

The pair were discussing the high-profile defamation case involving Amber Heard and Johnny Depp, during which the actor’s sister Christi Dembrowski claimed his ex-wife had branded him ‘old and fat’.

After the news segment aired at 9:11am, Karl commented, ‘Being called a fat old man is like…’ before Ally corrected him: ‘You’re not old.’

After a one-second pause, she clarified: ‘…or fat! I said all of them! Old or fat!’

But Karl was having none of it, jumping up from the sofa and telling the camera: ‘She’s fat-shaming! She’s fat-shaming again, Australia! I’m going on a diet.’

After storming off and leaving Ally alone to wrap up the show, she said in disbelief: ‘I was paying you a compliment!’

Karl then grabbed Channel Nine publicist Adrian Motte for a private chat behind the scenes, asking him, ‘That’s disgusting, isn’t it?’

Ally defended herself from the couch, saying: ‘I basically called you young, thin and handsome.’

But Karl’s tantrum didn’t stop there, as he shouted: ‘I really try. My feelings get hurt!’

After Karl’s walk-out, a stunned Ally said: ‘He’s so sensitive! I just called him thin, handsome, and young. That’s what I just said.

‘I deal with this every day. Every day is like this!’

Karl was then seen pretending to cry against a wall in the back of the studio, confirming the whole segment had been a joke.

‘Her reaction to that was she was in disbelief and sort of disgust because she said, “Dior, why would Dior want to do business with you? They’re about class and style and you don’t have style.” It was insulting, kind of taking away that one moment. That insult is there.

‘I’ve seen the insults, multiple times actually.’

Asked what Heard would say about Depp’s physical appearance, Dembrowski said she would call him ‘an old, fat man’.
