Howie Mandel and Sofia Vergara take a selfie on the set of 'America's Got Talent.'

America’s Got Talent judge Howie Mandel landed in hot water after he made a tasteless comment on his co-star Sofia Vergara’s latest Instagram update. The Columbian beauty recently posted a trio of sultry selfies in revealing bodysuits and Howie was among the many who commented on the viral post. However, fans weren’t pleased with what he had to say and accused him of being “inappropriate.” Read on and find out what was all about!

Was Howie Oggling Sofia?

As TV Shows Ace reported today, Sofia photographed herself in a set of clingy bodysuits. “Which color is your favorite?” the newly divorced 51-year-old asked in the caption. Howie, 67, offered his opinion, but his comment rubbed fans the wrong way.

The AGT star¬†didn’t waste time trying to pick and choose, responding: “I have a top 3ūüĒ•.” Nonetheless, fans of the show thought his reaction was in poor taste and dubbed it “inappropriate,” according to The U.S. Sun.

Fans Blast Howie Mandel For¬† Flirty Comment: ‘Are You Married?’

Howie complimenting Sofia’s looks was met with disapproval from fans, who came after the entertainer for his remark. One person didn’t hesitate to point out that the Canadian comedian and TV personality is married.

“Are you married,” read the post, seemingly implying that Howie’s comment wouldn’t sit well with his wife, Terry Mandel, 68.

“Wait,” wrote another fan.

Not The First Time

Howie Mandel has a track record of basically stalking his co-host’s sexy pics on social media. Back in July, when Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello announced their divorce, Howie joked on the show that the actress was looking for a new partner.

“If you’re looking for eligible bachelors, you should have talked to Sofia because she’s in the market right now,” he told a young contestant, causing the audience to boo.

Howie later told ET he was trying to “help Sofia” by blurting out she was freshly single, but that didn’t save him from his joke backfiring.

The entertainer reportedly almost joined his co-star on the single scene some time ago after nearly having his marriage fall apart. Howie recently opened up about his serious marital problems that stemmed from his OCD diagnosis at 40, as covered by TV Shows Ace earlier this month.

The¬†AGT judge, who once¬†received backlash from¬†AGT¬†fans due to his ‚Äėrisky behavior, revealed he sought professional help to deal with his mental disorder and save his marriage.

Howie has been married to his wife Terry, who is a television producer and talent agent, for 43 years. The pair are childhood sweethearts and share three adult children: daughters Jackie, 39, and Riley, 31, and son Alex, 34.

What was your impression of Howie‚Äôs comment? Do you think the married TV personality deserves the backlash for complimenting Sofia’s photos? Let us know below in the comment section.
