George Lopez has finally realized he made a stinky move when he compared Kirstie Alley to a pig during a segment on Monday's "Lopez Tonight."
The comedian, who showed a clip of Alley's debut performance on "Dancing with the Stars" with "her little hooves tapping away," offered a mea culpa on Twitter Thursday.
"I misjudged the joke," he tweeted. "No malice was intended and I apologize to Kirstie."
His joke gone wrong also included a mangling of the classic "This Little Piggy" nursery rhyme.
"Before the show, she went to the market and then she had roast beef," Lopez said.
"And this is her going all the way home," he continued before it cut to a clip of a Geico commercial featuring a squealing pig in a car.

About an hour before Lopez's tweet, Alley herself urged her followers not to "worry about George's comments."
"Just remember what happens to the big bad, drunk woolf," the 60-year-old tweeted. "Falls in a boiling pot of vodka.Piggy laughs."
Alley returns to the "DWTS" ballroom for a second performance with partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy on Monday after getting rave reviews from the judges this week.
But if Lopez, clearly unimpressed with Alley's moves, believes in the widespread reality series "vote for the worst" theory, the actress just may be able to rely on him to stay in the competition.
