Eric Stonestreet has been accused of not being as friendly as his “Modern Family” fan-favorite character after a recent podcast appearance. 

On June 25, podcaster Taylor Strecker was a guest on “Summer House” star Paige DeSorbo’s Amazon Live show when she was asked who was the “worst guest” she’s had on her “Taste of Taylor” podcast.

“Eric Stonestreet… He’s from ‘Modern Family,’ and he’s like the chubby, jolly, sweet, funny one,” Strecker told DeSorbo, adding, “Could he be anything but? Nasty!”

Stonestreet – who portrayed Cameron Tucker on the series for 11 seasons – was allegedly only interested in appearing on Strecker’s podcast to promote his partnership with Pepto-Bismol.

“I didn’t know!” Strecker admitted on Stonestreet’s reason for appearing. “So we’re talking, we’re talking. I’m like, you know, just being my adorable self. And he’s like, ‘So when are we gonna talk about Pepto-Bismol?’”

She continued, “I said, ‘I have hemorrhoids. I’m the queen of diarrhea. I love Pepto-Bismol! We can talk about whatever you want.’ And he said to me – and I quote – ‘Somebody didn’t do their homework.'”

“I said, ‘I’m sorry. Am I getting paid by Pepto-Bismol? The answer is no. So that’s your job to figure out, not mine,'” Strecker said.

DeSorbo jokingly added, “We’re calling Sofia Vergara and we’re getting to the bottom of it. I mean, it’s enough now.”

Strecker’s podcast with Stonestreet isn’t online. The actor’s representative did not immediately respond to Fox News Digital’s request for comment.

The clip of Strecker and DeSorbo discussing Stonestreet was shared on Amazon Live’s official TikTok account. The comments were filled with “Modern Family” fans weighing in on the conversation about the actor.

“Omg!!! I’m bummed,” one user wrote. Another added, “Noooo don’t tell me this.”

In 2017, Eric addressed that his real personality is very different from Cam Tucker’s personality on “Modern Family,” which has disappointed some fans when they meet him in person.

“I didn’t realize how much I compete with the character I play on TV,” Stonestreet told Dan Patrick at the time. “When I meet people out on the street it used to be like ‘Are you not feeling very well? Is there something wrong with you?’ Well no, this is just my personality.”

Stonestreet admitted that he’s way more “lowkey, dead-pan” than the flamboyant, loud character he portrayed on television for over a decade.

“I always feel like I register disappointment on people’s faces. I always feel like, ‘Wow, I’m disappointing people,'” he said at the time.
