Wendy Williams Blasts Paris Jackson for Identifying as Black, Paris Responds [Video]


Wendy Williams had a LOT to say about Paris Jackson’s recent interview with Rolling Stone.

During her ‘Hot Topics’ segment, Wendy took issue with Paris not only getting the cover of the magazine — but also with the fact that Paris identifies as Black.

She said:

“She has not made her mark on her own. You cannot be on the cover of one of the most prestigious entertainment and influential magazines in the world and just be the daughter of and tell your story inside. Sorry you all.”

Wendy continued,

By the way, she considers herself Black, period. She’s not going to address this again. She was raised Black. Her father would constantly remind her of what it means to be Black and proud and so don’t ask her again. I get that she considers herself Black and everything, but I’m just talking about the visual because you know … Black is not what you call yourself, it’s what the cops see you when they got steel to your neck on the turnpike. It’s what they see. But that’s cute, and good for her.”

Paris took to Twitter to respond. In a now-deleted Tweet she said:

“Well she didn’t birth me so.”

Hm. Thoughts?
