Wendy Williams recently found herself under fire after her comments on historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs), Jesse Williams’ acceptance speech for BET’s humanitarian award, and the NAACP.

While many cheer over some of the outrageous things the talk show host says on her TV show “The Wendy Williams Show” on celebrities and pop culture, this time around silence and confusion.

Williams, who’s widely known for “saying it like she means it,” should have just shut up.

“I must say to you, [Jesse Williams] was on BET. His speech was very poignant,” she said. “On the other hand, I would be really offended if there was a school that was known as a historically white college. We have historically Black colleges. What if there was the National Organization for White People, only? There’s the NAACP.”

Eye rollshe tried it but she didn’t stop there, of course. Seconds later, after her comments on the matter, the crowd went silent:

“Look, everybody’s quiet. You’re leaving me out here to dry by myself? One wrong word — I’m choosing my words carefully, but what I am saying is racism s**ks and we can all do better in our household, educating ourselves and teaching our children to make it better.”

“National speeches like this will always rub people the wrong way just like white people will be offended because Spelman College is a historically Black college for women,” Williams said.

She added, “You might feel funny about that. I know I’d feel funny, like I just told you. If there was a white college or whatever.”

Maybe she forgot that most of the country’s 107 HBCUs were founded to educate freed slaves after the American Civil War, because historically white institutions wouldn’t open their doors to blacks wanting to get an education.

You can see some HBCU alums and supporters, many who are (or at least were) loyal viewers, read her to filth on Twitter below.

  1. I’ve been waiting for Wendell’s comeuppance for years. She is evil. Anyone who knows her from her radio days knows she’s a gossiping slanderer (and nothing’s changed). She has pissed off EVERYONE with her lies and innuendo. On her talk show, she plays to the white audience and the ignorant black people that has always co-signed every ignorant thing she’s said on her show. Today was silence. Then she made some blanket statement about everyone doing the right thing in their house (in order to win back the audience). Of course it got the obligatory applause. However, I sat there with my mouth agape as she made derogatory comments about black colleges and the NAACP, that I would expect from only Trump! It’s time for Wendell’s payback! I hope she doesn’t get to slide with this one. Please let it be the end of her/him.

  2. Well said Wendy. Sometimes you have to bring them to heel to get them to see things from a different perspective. The ground up, LOL! Remember to vote for me. P.S There is no such thing as white priviledge, but if you weren’t born a Clinton, tough ⓢⓗⓘⓣ.

    • Me either! It’s a MAN. Wendell looks nasty and creepy! Take him off T.V. All his staff are flunkies to him and he treats them ALL like crap. He looks like a cam/raffe with a bad wig on to me, which is a combination of a camel & a giraffe. Let me add a rabbit in there too. Wendell hops, jumps and skips when he moves. Never walks! Yuck!

  4. I’m beginning to think that Wendy needs to go on hormone replacement therapy because menopause is kicking her butt. It’s a known fact that women go through a variety of emotions and other mental changes when estrogen levels get low. I’m offering this excuse because I can’t believe anyone her age doesn’t understand the need for HBC’s and organizations like the NAACP. She just can’t be that stupid and didn’t they renew her show for at least 3 more years so she can take a break from kissing white ass.

    • She’s really THAT dumb! She should get a refund from the college she supposedly attended. She kills me when she puts on those fake-prescription glasses to read the cards. SHE CAN’T READ!!! Anyone who watches the show knows that she fumbles through simple text. Now I understand her obsession with Beyoncé and suggesting that Beyoncé has a 3rd grade education. It’s because Wendell is challenged and needs to bully someone she believes is in worse shape than herself.

  6. 5 seconds after Joan Rivers died, Wendy started saying, “Can We Talk?” That is Joan’s moniker! Joan’s been saying that for over 40 years! The nerve of that ambulance-chasing she-man to high-jack Joan’s well-known phrase! Wendell has no shame.

  8. I wonder if Kevin Hunter has banged Stacy Dash yet, since Stacy & Wendell think alike; but Stacy’s actually a pretty woman.

  9. Have you ever noticed when Wendell first comes out on the stage she/he stands with his/her legs apart? He/she said it’s because he/she is so tall and would fall over if he/she closed the gap. It’s all BS. She/he is just making room for his frank & beans. Most dudes would stand like that in a dress.

  11. It was hard for me to understand Wendy’s babbling to make a comment one way or the other. I guess she was trying to play devil’s advocate, but it fell flat. However, regardless if you agree with her comments or not, I find it very offensive, cruel and unnecessary to call her a he/she or Wendell. These comments are transphobic and should not have any place in this discussion.

  13. Just another Black American who thinks they are above HBCUs. Unfortunately, there are many Black Americans who believe HBCUs are inferior and should fade away into the history books, while HWCUs thrive. smh

  15. First off as a graduate of a HBCU let me clear something up…. That was a term used by white america. Most public colleges are products of the state and the land is owned by the state it resides in. Those schools were create during Jim Crow “Separate but Equal” BS. At FAMU to say it’s a black college flies in the face of it’s current attendees many of whom are white! If not for these schools many successful blacks would never have graduated under the current environment of mostly white schools. Google the issues sometimes and you will see. Hell most of them assume you’re on a athletic scholarship or some Affirmative Action case. We as a people need our HBCU an need to support them more NOW than EVER! Let the best players got to HBCU and watch all the BIG 10 money go to helping Black Schools……IJS

  16. This just shows her ignorance. I didn’t really care for her talk show and definitely will never watched it again not even flipping through channels trying to watch a show. Obviously, she forgot what color she is.

  17. I watched Wendy’s comment a couple of times to try to make since of it and I couldn’t do it. She was trying to comment as if she were white like talking for their perspective but it still didn’t make since because white people have the KKK, certain police officers and other organizations to help with their agenda like black people have the NAACP and black schools were founded because of white racism and segregation. I feel like Wendy was trying to say that racism is wrong on either side of the white/black spectrum but her approach was wrong and not well thought out.

  18. wendell williams (Doesn’t deserve capitalization) is has the Stacy Dash Syndrome. I always knew that it was not to be trusted. She hates all educated black women, and actually believe that good hair means white hair/wig. She’s pathetic

  19. Noticed she has increased the number of Black people in her audience since discrediting the importance of Jesse Williams, NAACP, and HBCU’s.
