Brooke Boney calls Melissa McCarthy a ‘wuss’ for her extreme reaction to getting bitten by a huntsman spider in Australia

Today’s entertainment reporter Brooke Boney has taken a playful dig at Melissa McCarthy over her viral Instagram video about being bitten by a spider.

The American actress, 50, made headlines on Wednesday after she uploaded an Instagram video of herself covered in bandages as she ‘recovered’ from a huntsman spider bite.  

However, Brooke, 34, showed little sympathy for the Bridesmaids star while discussing the viral video on Thursday’s Today show.

‘I didn’t even know huntsman can bite you,’ she said, looking rather unimpressed.

‘They don’t, they’re fine,’ host Allison Langdon agreed. 

To the amusement of Allison and her co-host Karl Stefanovic, Brooke suddenly exclaimed: ‘She’s a wuss!’

Karl then joked: ‘She was obviously bitten by a stagehand or something! They’re much more venomous.’ 

Huntsmen spiders are not considered to be dangerous to humans and are primarily non-aggressive in nature, despite their large size. 

On the rare occasion that a human is bitten by a huntsman spider, the bite may cause non-lethal effects such as localised pain, swelling and nausea.

On Wednesday, Melissa shared a tongue-in-cheek video to Instagram of herself lying in bed with bandages on both hands.  

In the post, Melissa is first seen saying: ‘I love that all the bugs and creatures will kill you.’

She is then pictured lying in a bed with bandages on both her hands and a towel on her forehead. 

‘After professing my love of Australian critters to InStyle magazine, I was quickly reminded by someone that I was conveniently forgetting the aftermath of some of those ‘magical’ bites,’ Melissa wrote.
