It all began when actor David Spade published in Instagram after the show on Sunday night when Cooper and his star "Star was born" went on stage with The Shallow, winning the best Oscar song.
Esposito, who was married to Cooper from 2006 to 2007, responded to the comments with "Ha".
This has led to some criticism from those who believe that actress NCIS is mocking the couple.
Esposito published a video on Tuesday with some language in her official account at Instagram, explaining that her comment was directed at David Spade's very outspoken speech of something about the former, and I literally laughed at him because he was so brave in what I was saying and thought it was funny. "I have the right to think something funny," she said. "You also have the right to say something and obviously this is the time when everyone says whatever they want."
Esposito continued: "We have so many things that happen in our country and in our world, who need attention," and said she was particularly disappointed by other women who attacked her as "old" and need "I did not see the Oscars," she said, "I do not know what happened, I do not care what happened."
