Yesterday talk show maven Wendy Williams came under fire for comments to one of her show fans that she refers to affectionately as her ‘cohosts’.
This is what the exchange was like:
During her popular Hot Topics segment, Williams asked who in her audience would be going out for Galentine’s Day, the unofficial holiday sparked by Parks & Recreation centered around women celebrating the other women in their lives.
Noticing that a few man in the crowd were applauding, Williams spoke out.
“If you’re a man and you’re clapping, you’re not even a part of this. You don’t understand the rules of the day. It’s women going out and getting saucy and then going home. You’re not a part,” she said.
“I don’t care if you’re gay. You don’t get a [menstruation] every 28 days,” Williams added. “You can do a lot that we do, but I get offended by the idea that we go through something you will never go through.”
“And stop wearing our skirts and our heels,” she continued, referencing the trend of gender fluid fashion, made popular by stars like Billy Porter. “Just saying, girls, what do we have for ourselves?”
“Looky here now, gay men, you’ll never be the women that we are,” Williams said. “No matter how gay.”
I saw it as normal cohost Wendy Banter but some took offense…
It went on and on… She had some supporters as well…
In this ‘I’m Offended’ era… Wendy Apologizes…
There…she apologized…move on.
