Unlike the rest of Hollywood, Wendy Williams says she’s ‘sick’ of the #MeToo movement.
“I’m sick of this #MeToo movement.” she said during the Hot Topics segment of her show.
“I love that people are speaking up for the first time and speaking out and everything, but now it’s got, I look at all men like you’re a #MeToo, all of them, all of them, which is not fair,” she continued.
Her studio audience was stunned into silence.
“And they’re asking everybody at the Grammys to wear a white rose to support the #MeToo,” she added, finally getting a little applause.
Then she moved on with another topic.
Earlier in the show, Wendy called out the #MeToo movement in connection with R. Kelly. There’s a grassroots movement to get his upcoming shows cancelled.
“It’s not gonna work. Black people are not very good at protesting, not since the King march,” said Wendy. “It’s not going to work.”
“See there’s so many people that are like, ‘He didn’t do it,’ or whatever. The #MeToo movement hasn’t affected R. Kelly, because R. Kelly, he wasn’t a #MeToo,” she continued. “Aaliyah voluntarily married him when she was 15 years old. And her parents voluntarily let her do it, when she was 15 years old. And that little girl that I saw with my own eye balls that he urinated on and he had his way with, was there at his house, she let it go down.”
“The multiple allegations of R. Kelly holding women in his own home. Where are their parents? This is a whole different thing, it has nothing to do with #MeToo,” she added. “R. Kelly is just a very very sick man.”
We have a feeling Wendy will be walking these comments back sooner rather than later.
We’ll update this post with video from the show when it becomes available.
