During Sunday night's festivities, Chrissy Metz came under internet fire after red carpet audio had some speculating that the This Is Us star called GLOW's Alison Brie a 'b***h'.

"I've been training with my trainer for seven or eight years", she said of the strength training she went through for wrestling scenes on the show.

Welp, consider that fleeting drama done and dusted.

Gibson later backed up Metz by revealing that he thought she said Alison is "such a babe".

Fans who were watching the cross live are absolutely convinced that Metz then says of Brie: "She's such a bi***".

Talking with PEOPLE during the ceremony, Metz denied that she had called Brie a "bitch".

"It's terribly unfortunate anyone would think much less run a story that was completely fabricated!"

When the camera panned to Brie, Metz was heard in the background saying something that sounded like, "She's such a b--". "'I know her. I saw her on the carpet and I told her how handsome she looked'".

From announcing the wrong victor (looking at you Warren Beatty) at the Oscars to making insensitive jokes at the Golden Globes (ahem, Ricky Gervais), there are always moments at every award show that make us cringe. "Alison and I obviously are friends".

Other news outlets also reported that Metz used a curse word to describe Brie.

According to Metz, Gibson had asked her whether she knew Alison Brie at the end of their interview, to which Metz responded, "Do I?"

"I don't speak about anyone like that I don't speak like that". "I saw her on the carpet and I told her how lovely she looked". So I'm glad that ... "I would never say anything like that about anyone".

Look, to be quite honest, the entirety of The Golden Globes last night was pretty damn awkward.
