He stormed off the Today show on Wednesday morning after being fat-shamed by his co-host Allison Langdon.

Evening the score: A day after she ridiculed him for his weight gain, Today host Karl Stefanovic got his revenge on Allison Langdon on Thursday when he mocked her abysmal singing voice
Allison, 42, showed off her notoriously bad voice during a segment about the pop diva offering her fans online singing lessons.
After entertainment reporter Brooke Boney said she may benefit from some professional advice, Allison replied: ‘I don’t even get what you’re suggesting.
‘Why on earth would I need singing lessons?’

She then gave a mercifully brief demonstration of her pitchy pipes as she screeched: ‘Sweet, sweet fantasy, baby.’
Karl cringed at her tone-deaf rendition, then told viewers: ‘From all of us here at Today, happy Easter.’
His snide remark was no doubt in response to Allison making fun of his recent weight gain on Wednesday’s episode.

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

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