Adam Carolla has found himself in hot water after questioning if anybody would ever "listen" to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez if she was "fat and in her 60s".

The 57-year-old radio personality made the bizarre statement during his appearance on Fox News' Hannity show this week.

Speaking to Sean Hannity, the Man Show creator asked: "Here’s a quick thought experiment: If AOC was fat and in her 60s, would anyone listen to another thing she ever said?"

The comment immediately caused Hannity to reply: "Oh, boy. You’re going to step in that one."

Check out the exchange below:

Hannity then asked Carolla: "What exactly do you mean by that?"

To which Carolla replied: "Yes, she's young, she's vibrant, she's beautiful, and everyone's always putting a camera and a mic in her face. But her opinions are idiotic 95% of the time and I don't think - if she was a middle-aged, heavy-set woman - anyone would care what she had to say."

In defense of the New York City Congresswoman, Hannity retorted: "I'm not so sure I agree. Now, I'll say this, you can criticize her ideas, and I do - I think the Green New Deal is madness and insanity - but she's got the whole Democratic party following her. In my opinion, she's way more powerful than Speaker Pelosi.

"And if she and the Squad decided Speaker Pelosi is out, I think [AOC] could probably be speaker. If she challenges Chuck Schumer in New York, I think she has a good shot at beating him. Maybe I'm wrong?"

In response, Carolla added: "Look, I agree with you, I'm just saying if she was fat and old I don't think TMZ would be chasing her around with a camera."

Following the show, Carolla has been slammed for his comments by social media users, with one person posing the thought experiment: "If Adam Carolla were thin, good-looking and young, he would still be a flaming a**hole."

A second added: "Meanwhile he is 57 and no one has listened to him in decades."

A third Twitter user wrote: "I had completely forgotten he existed. I’m going to go ahead and continue with that."

Other social media users also referred back to comments Ocasio-Cortez made last month regarding "sexually frustrated" republicans being "mad" that they cannot date her.

After facing criticism about her trip to Florida, AOC tweeted: "If Republicans are mad they can’t date me they can just say that instead of projecting their sexual frustrations onto my boyfriend’s feet. Ya creepy weirdos."

She added in subsequent tweets: "It’s starting to get old ignoring the very obvious, strange, and deranged sexual frustrations that underpin the Republican fixation on me, women,& LGBT+ people in general.

"These people clearly need therapy, won’t do it, and use politics as their outlet instead. It’s really weird."

Some Twitter users felt like Carolla's comments justified these previous tweets from the congresswoman:

As of this writing, Ocasio-Cortez has yet to respond to Carolla's appearance on Hannity.
