Playing Jessica Simpson Accused of Being Drunk During Live TV Appearance

Jessica Simpson showed up on Home Shopping Network to promote her clothing line on Thursday, but in turn, got slammed on Twitter for being, what some tweets claimed, a little bit out of it.

The social media firestorm called attention to how the mother-of-two was promoting her "Kiss Me" super-skinny, gray jeans alongside host Colleen Lopez.

During her two-hour live appearance, Simpson complimented her sister, Ashlee, while talking about the pants. And it was that 30-second moment many Twitter users fixated on, accusing her of rambling and pointing out that she was slightly swaying back and forth.

"Ashlee is, like, the best at wearing gray," Simpson said, adding, "Like, she's very rock 'n' roll, but there's something about a gray, that's, like, sexy."

She continued, "Maybe it's her and her husband (Evan Ross), they share jeans. ...I have no idea. ...I dunno, there's just something hot about them."

Simpson's mother Tina later took over the on-camera duties.

The 35-year-old's behavior quickly became a trending topic, with many accusing her of being "drunk" or "high."

"My friend just alerted me to Jessica Simpson on HSN...she's drunk," one tweet read. "It's awesome."

Another message said: "I was changing channels and seen @JessicaSimpson is on #hsn so I watched for a couple minutes. Idk how she's a business woman. She seems stoned!"

And the tweets didn't stop there:

While she's receiving a bit of backlash for her HSN appearance, it didn't seem to affect Simpson's sales. Lopez declared on Facebook that they had a "sell out show."

Thank you so much for watching tonight! Congrats to Jessica Simpson and her Mom, Tina on a sell out show!!

"It was fun to have Jessica make her HSN debut with her mother Tina last night," the network told ET. "We were happy to host them and thrilled with the way customers responded to the collection."

HSN's Amy Morrision even celebrated Simpson's appearance with a selfie with the star.
