Three podcast hosts have found themselves in hot water for comments about staying fit.

Brothers Anthony Casasanta and Nick Casasanta, and their pal Jason Girratano recently launched The No Filter Pod with the intention of it being 'the most blunt podcast in the world'.

With a tagline like that, you know it's going to be controversial.

So it's no surprise that comments they made in a recent episode saw them copping a wave of abuse from people on social media.

They were talking about their partners' bodies and how they would feel if they gained weight.

A snippet of the conversation was posted onto TikTok, which shows Anthony telling Nick and Jason: "If my wife lets herself go after I have kids with her, I'm going to tell her once.

"If you don't get your s**t together, because I still want to be sexually attracted to my wife, my spouse, but if you can't do that, I'm out'."

The clip has been viewed more than two million times and the post has turned the comments off.

According to News Corp, the barrage of angry messages has risen to such a level that they're now receiving death threats.

British influencer Alex Light was one of many who called the trio out and said it was 'one of the worst things' she's seen on the internet.

"What you're saying is that when you get married, you're not looking for a partnership, that's not what you want," she said on Instagram.

"You want to own and control your wife. You want her to look and behave a certain way - your way - you want her to conform to your standards and if she doesn't, she's gone."

The video was posted on TikTok with the caption 'is this too much' along with the hashtag #goviral, meaning they were probably hoping for this statement to get worldwide attention.

"We really feel as the video was taken out of context," the trio said in a statement. "We will not be apologising."

They added: "We just don't want our wives to be obese. We feel as if society promotes obesity which is a very unhealthy and uncomfortable way of living.

"We promote healthy lifestyles here at NoFilterPod. It's also not only about weight gain after childbirth, it's also about mental health as well as the physical health.

"We feel like it's very important to hold spouses both men and women to a high standard."
