Jimmy Kimmel joked about Hollywood’s rampant use of Ozempic during his Oscars monologue.

The host of Sunday’s Academy Awards pointed out the stunning weight loss across the room and joked, “I couldn’t help but wonder, is Ozempic right for me?”

The drug, which is meant to treat diabetes but has turned into a weight-loss solution, has been at the center of conversations and accusations as various celebrities and reality stars have flaunted new figures.

Kimmel, 55, however, stopped short of calling out any specific star.

Although few have admitted to using Ozempic or its generic, semaglutide — with the exception of some like “Shahs of Sunset” star Golnesa Gharachedaghi, who went so far as to detail how she injects herself — most have shrugged off or blasted accusations.

“Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Kyle Richards has had to deny on numerous occasions using Ozempic to get her fit figure.

“I had never heard of it. I had heard of it when they accused me, but I’d already lost weight by the time I had heard about Ozempic, so it was really frustrating to me,” the Bravo personality, 54, explained.

“What I don’t want to get lost in this is that I want to be able to inspire people.”

She continued, “I stopped drinking almost seven months ago, I don’t eat bad, sugar, pizza, donuts, carbs … so I’d rather be inspiring than people making up stories about me.”

The Bravolebrity clarified that she slimmed down by working out “for two hours every day.”

“I’ve never tried Ozempic, none of those diet drugs and now hearing that diabetics can’t even get their hands on it, it would be extremely irresponsible to do that so it’s extra offensive to me,” she added.
