Wendy Williams got in some serious hot water yesterday by calling out her gay fans.
Williams brought up the topic of Galentine’s Day, a way for women to celebrate their gal pals who have been important in their lives instead of buying into all the Valentine’s Day hubbub.
She asked the crowd who would be participating and noticed a few men in the crowd were applauded, which apparently set her off.
Shot: “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. I don’t care if you’re gay. You don’t get a [menstruation] every 28 days. 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. Just saying, girls, what do we have for ourselves? Looky here now, gay men, you’ll never be the women that we are. No matter how gay.”
“I’ll start by saying I apologize, I did not mean to offend my LGBTQ+ community on yesterday’s show. I did not realize until I got home, and I watched the second running of our show.
“I didn’t mean to hurt anybody’s feelings. I’m just having a conversation. If you know me long enough, then you know…I live and let live every day. Life is too short. I’m 55 years old, and maybe I sounded like your auntie, your mother, your big sister, or somebody out of touch. I’m not out of touch, except for perhaps yesterday by saying what I said. I deeply apologize.
“I will do better.”
