what were you thinking?
obviously you weren’t.
so as you already know,
wendy williams went from “shock jock” to “talk show host”.
wendy has always said what she felt,
with no fucks of other’s feelings or if they were offended,
but maybe she should have kept this opinion about hbcus to herself.
a foxholer sent me what cnn had to report…
Wendy Williams has a segment called “Hot Topics” on her talk show, but she’s found herself in hot water over recent comments.
The daytime talk-show host ran afoul of some after her remarks this week on “Grey’s Anatomy” star Jesse Williams speech which she called “poignant.”
But it was what she had to say about historically black colleges that many found offensive.
“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.”
starts: 17:17Historically black colleges and universities, known as HBCUs, were started for African-American students who found themselves shut out of other institutions of higher learning because of racism.
There are now calls to boycott her show.
there are historically “white” schools.
black go there,
but we have schools built for “us”.
wendy get your shit…
but she lost a huge endorsement for her comments via b scott:
Well, sources exclusively tell lovebscott.com that Wendy LOST the show’s Chevrolet sponsorship as a result of her anti-HBCU and anti-NAACP comments.
In April of this year, The Wendy Williams show struck an all-inclusive deal with Chevrolet, Carat Media and ACE Media Corp. to include on-air promotion of the 2016 Chevy Malibu. The activation included custom digital content, social media marketing, and was set to continue for the rest of the year.
Our sources say that Wendy has been “sobbing all week” over the loss, although she refuses to apologize.
We’re not sure who exactly pulled the plug, but it should be noted that Andrea Holmes Thompkins, President and CEO of ACE Media Corp (the company responsible for facilitating the Chevy partnership), graduated from Howard University.
wendy is in a very awkward position.
she spent many years on her radio show saying whatever she wanted.
she burned a lot of bridges with bigger names with that mouth of hers.
we expect wendy to “keep it real” like she use to do.
in the age of social media and “black twitter”,
that could have your whole career yanked.
her comments were absolutely stupid.
hopefully this is a case of early dementia,
but she definitely needs to apologize.
lowkey: i would be so insulted and in my feelz to be compared to “stacey dash” as wendy is.
that is when i’d have to re-evaluate my life.
