The Golden Globes ceremony is still in progress, but that didn't stop some red-carpet controversy from spilling into the ballroom.

Social media was abuzz Sunday when a hot mike picked up a comment from "This Is Us" star Chrissy Metz in which it sounded a lot like the actress called "Glow" star Alison Brie "such a bitch."

Sitting at her seat inside the ballroom, Metz was scrolling through Twitter when she read the news about the alleged comment. She pulled up the clip and held it to her ear.

"They asked me if I knew Alison Brie and I said, 'Oh, boy, do I,'" Metz told The Times. "I know her, and I love her.

"I don't talk like that," she continued. "I would never say anything like that about anyone. I'm gutted."

Metz said she hadn't seen Brie in the ballroom tonight and doesn't have her number.

"We only follow each other on Instagram," she said, "and I don't want to ruin her night. She has a huge night. I'm just so upset."

For her part, Brie appears just as confused as Metz.

"But why?" Brie asked a BuzzFeed reporter when the outlet inquired about her reaction to the alleged diss. "I know her. I saw her on the carpet, and I told her how beautiful she looked."

Us Magazine suggested Metz called Brie "such a bitch" on the red carpet, but has since deleted its tweet.
