Michael Bublé is not feeling good about Tony Danza’s “condescending” responses to a red carpet reporter.

The “Sway” singer, 47, jumped on the backlash bandwagon Friday after a TikTok video of the “Who’s the Boss?” alum brushing off an interviewer at the “New York, New York” Broadway premiere last night went viral.

In the clip, host Rye Myers asks Danza what is his “favorite New York City staple food,” but the visibly annoyed actor responds, “You know what you’ve got to do, buddy, you’ve got to come up with better questions” and then walks off.

Bublé, offering some comfort to Myers, wrote in the comments section of his post, “I think you’re amazing Ry. I’ll have a pizza with ya.”

He then shaded the “Taxi” alum, adding, “Let’s not invite Tony …”

Myers wrote back to the “Feeling Good” singer, “Omg Michael, thank you for the kind comment. Means so much! I’d LOVE to have pizza with you! It would be fun!😊🍕🍕”

Danza has not addressed the incident and his reps did not immediately return Page Six’s request for comment on the reaction the viral video has gotten or Bublé’s remarks.

As for Myers, he appears to have taken the uncomfortable encounter in stride, writing in the caption of his post, “I understand not everyone is in the mood to answer questions, and you can always pass.”

He continued, “I asked these same questions (and a few others!) to heavy hitters like #JoelGray #linmanuelmiranda and others, and only #TonyDanza replied like this….”

Myers then concluded, “To say I was blown away, shocked, and embarrassed is an understatement…But, my professionalism showed through! 😉”

He added in a statement to Page Six on Friday that the encounter was upsetting because he “grew up watching and respecting” Danza.

“I look forward to covering many more red carpets and sharing my light as ‘Your Broadway & Entertainment Bff!’ with the many celebrities who love talking to me and sharing their light with me and my audience,” he told us. “I hope Mr. Danza will remember to be a little kinder next time.”
