Why People Can’t Stand Wendy Williams

Why People Can’t Stand Wendy Williams


Wendy Williams lives for gossip. The radio DJ-turned-talk show host says it
like she means it and is the queen of spilling the tea. But while Williams’ outspoken commentary makes
for great entertainment and ratings for The Wendy Williams Show, it’s sparked heated feuds,
hurt feelings, and backlash. Here are some of the reasons why people just
can’t stand her. Terry Crews’ assault claims In the aftermath of the Harvey Weinstein scandal
in October 2017, Terry Crews revealed that he had been assaulted by talent agent
Adam Venit in 2016. The Brooklyn Nine-Nine star was lauded by
many for sharing his story and for filing a report with the Los Angeles Police Department,
which was captured by TMZ. But Wendy Williams’ confusing comments stirred
up controversy. When asked if she thought Crews was brave,
Williams said: “That’s not brave. He’s just talking. But, it may have a really negative effect
on his career, do you know what I mean?” Williams went on to say she is glad Crews
came forward, but contends it may hurt him in the long run. “In the race war that’s going on in this country
still… Terry will suffer.” Aaliyah biopic backlash Williams served as executive producer of the
successful Lifetime bio-pic, Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B—but the film was made against
the wishes of the late singer’s family and longtime collaborators. Former producer Timbaland led the social media
backlash against the project. Following the film’s release, he said,
“I’m very upset about it. You’re showing a mockery on TV.” Williams’ reaction to the criticism essentially
amounted to saying “sorry, not sorry,” joking that the movie “broke the internet” with its
debut. Rumors about Tupac Williams seemingly has no qualms about spreading
rumors, but one of the worst was when she insinuated that legendary rapper Tupac Shakur
was assaulted in jail in the ’90s. Tupac wasn’t pleased, telling Angie Martinez
of Hot 97: “I got a beef with Wendy Williams… because
that ­disrespected me, my family and what I represent.” Tupac later retaliated against Williams through
his music with the song “Why U Turn On Me.” The musical diss was apparently no skin off
Williams’ nose, telling The Hollywood Reporter: “Without those song mentions, I might not
be on TV right now.” Leaked celebrity photos Actress Jennifer Lawrence was one celeb whose photos were part of the massive
2014 celebrity photo hack. Lawrence spoke out to Vanity Fair, saying,
“It’s my body, and it should be my choice, and the fact that it is not my choice is absolutely
disgusting.” To say that Williams didn’t have the most
feminist take on the hack and JLaw’s comments may be putting it lightly. “It’s not your choice. It’s in the cloud, and I’ve looked several
times.” Williams then directed her monologue at the
actress. “I mean, you’re the one who took the pictures.” Williams explained Lawrence’s rationale for
taking the photos in the first place, then dished out advice once again. “If she would just stop talking about the
cloud and the pictures, it would go away, we’d all forget about it!” Whether Lawrence should stop talking about
it or capitalize on it for her career, Williams couldn’t seem to make up her mind. “You don’t look bad under your clothes, and
I think the hackulation has actually made your career even hotter.” This could give us some insight into what
Williams would do in a similar situation. “So hold your head up with pride.” Paris Jackson’s racial identity Talking about the late Michael Jackson in
January 2017, an 18-year-old Paris Jackson told Rolling Stone:
“He is my father. He will always be my father… I consider myself black.” Williams took issue with that. “I mean, I get that she considers herself
black and everything, but I’m just talking about the visual.” Williams has long feuded with the Jackson
family and didn’t hold back. “But that’s cute, and good for her.” Jackson fired back on Twitter. “She seems to think about the family a lot
considering she makes all these claims about us. Why are we on her mind so often?” Kim Zolciak-Biermann’s stroke When the The Real Housewives of Atlanta star
Kim Zolciak-Biermann suffered a mini stroke in 2015, Williams cast doubt on the legitimacy
of the health scare, indicating that she might be fibbing about the whole thing. Williams seemed to believe that Zolciak-Biermann
might have just wanted to get off of Dancing With the Stars by playing seriously sick. Zolciak-Biermann quickly took to social media
to blast Williams’ comments. “Absolutely appalling!! Wendy Williams how disgusting for you to insinuate
I ‘faked’ my mini stroke on your show this morning!! You mad cause I didn’t come on your show! This clearly shows your warped mentality!!” “I’m going to pretend that this nightmare
isn’t happening.” Beyoncé’s brains Yes, Williams has even gone after the queen. Williams ruffled feathers when she trash talked
Beyoncé in one of her more memorable “Hot Topics” segments in 2012. After sharing a preview of Beyoncé’s HBO
documentary, Life Is But a Dream, the talk show host questioned the singer’s intelligence. “Cuz fortunately one of the TVs in our kitchen
has closed captioning, so I’ll be able to understand what she says.” At this point, her normally supportive studio
audience began to boo. “Beyonce sounds like she’s got a fifth grade
education. She can’t talk.” [Crowd booing]
We’re guessing Williams learned all about the Beyhive shortly thereafter. “You under arrest, sugar.” Outing celebs
In the ’90s, Williams became notorious for alleging that various male celebrities, including
Tyler Perry, LL Cool J, and Usher, were gay — live on-air and without any proof. Karma eventually caught up with the then radio
DJ when she decided to talk about Sean “P Diddy” Combs. According to VH1, the rapper retaliated by
getting her kicked off the air. In 2017, Combs and Williams ended their nearly
20-year feud when he appeared as a guest on The Wendy Williams Show. Williams took the opportunity to own up to
their shared past. “I know I pissed a lot of people off, including
you. But this is a full circle moment, everybody.” That’s all Diddy ever wanted, Wendy. “I must say, it’s been a long time coming.” Kesha vs. Dr. Luke After a court ruled in 2016 that Kesha was still contractually tied to the producer/songwriter
Dr. Luke despite her allegations of assault and physical and emotional abuse,
Williams shared her controversial opinion that the ruling was fair. “If everybody complained because somebody
allegedly sexually abused them and was ripping them off, then contracts would be broken all
the time.” Williams later backed down after backlash
from Kesha fans—sort of. She said on a later show:
“Unfortunately a lot of people lie about assault so I was just being skeptical, that’s what
I do.” While still hedging her bets, Williams did
eventually come around and apologize. “Kesha, I want to A. Apologize to you, and
B. Say, you’re a hell of a woman!” Thanks for watching! Click the Nicki Swift icon to subscribe to

  1. She was right about the rapper gay accusations though. I know people who spent a lot of time in that scene and there’s a lot of DL there. Lots.

  2. She's jealous of attractive, well liked people – everything that she's not.

    She has to write her own headlines, which are usually bold facrd lies: she's a desired woman, shes desired, there's no trouble in her marriage, she knew her husband was cheating for years, shes dating a middle aged Dr.

  3. Wendy Williams is such a hater. She is famous on talking shit on other stars who are obviously way more talented than her. She don't gives a damn on hurting other people's feelings. And she is so fake. Also she is very narcisstic at times, thinking she is the best talk show host in the world. But in actual fact, she is just a talentless show host.

  4. I have heard that Wendy is really William or something to that effect ROFL! Kind of like Oprah or Manchelle O'bama same thing LOL!

  5. Wendy is so rude. I love how she can trash talk every celebrity under the sun on her show, but as soon as anyone talks about her personal life she gets offended. Can't have it both ways! 🙄

  6. Shes a desperate idiot from Jersey 🙄… how she has her own show and viewers is beyond me 😂 but when Omarosa when on her show and blasted her, she played the innocent sick puppy 😂😂

  8. I think there are obviously some racist/intolerant people who don't like her because of how she looks. But that's a minority. Most people dislike her because of her personality. She is arrogant and rude.

  9. I Zeus refuse to be an athalete. I Zeus have never set foot in an Olympic stadium. Life is very different in real time.

  10. I think from your compilation, this woman is brilliant. She's milking controversy then apologises and has become a millionaire doing that. I'm clearly learning….

It’s the same drag queen and this is why the media is pushing Drag and Gays on us all , and pushing it on KIDS like it’s normal ,
    Wake up!!! It’s because they all are secretly transgender and I mean all of Hollywood men and women are all reverse gender of what you think they are!

  13. The chick can be a bitch some times but you know what she can give it and (take it) so mad respect to her!!!! She's just speaking her mind and saying what we are all thinking.

  20. She sits there and keeps talking about others in a disrespectful manner all the time as if she is so perfect, and there are people clapping and watching her show. Like for Real? So many gossipers, just go mind ur business Wendy.

  21. The only thing I dont like about wendy Williams is the fact that she shaved her face and body….. we all know it's you chewbacca, you ain't fooling us.
