Presenter Wendy Williams was involved in a controversy that left her “short skirts”, literally. In one of the last episodes of her show, Wendy said live that men should stop wearing skirts and the comment didn't go well.
In Thursday's episode of “The Wendy Williams Show”, Williams asked the audience if anyone among them was participating in “Galentine's Day”, the unofficial holiday centered on female friendship that takes place on February 13. After some applause, Williams said, “Well, first, if you're a man and you're clapping, you're not even part of that… I don't care if you're gay. You don't menstruate every 28 days ”.
The homophobic comments of the presenter begin at 6 minutes of video.
“You can do a lot of what we do, but I am offended by the idea of going through something that you will never go through. And stop wearing our skirts and heels, ”continued Williams.
“Gay, you will never be the woman we are. No matter how gay, sir, ”she added, addressing an audience member. (Ironically, she continued: "It is so scary to go out here and sit here alone with my mouth loose and my mood smooth … I can't blame anyone but me.")
The comments quickly provoked an online reaction, which made the American run to her social networks to apologize.
See what Wendy Williams said in a video posted on her Twitter, the day after her show aired.
“I'll start by saying, I apologize. I didn't mean to offend my LGBTQ + community on yesterday's show, ”said Williams. “I never do the show in a place of malice. I understand my platform with the community.
“I didn't want to hurt anyone's feelings. I'm just talking, “she continued. “I'm not out of touch, except maybe yesterday, saying what I said. So, I apologize and deeply appreciate the support I receive from the community. I will do better.
So, what did you think of all this?
