Wendy Williams is known for being outrageously outspoken and this has often landed her in hot water. But her most recent comment has caused a lot of anger, as it was about our beloved Joaquin Phoenix.
Keep scrolling to see exactly what she had to say...
Wendy Williams is a talk show host, former radio DJ, actress, and author.Basically, this woman can do it all. She's been in the business for a long time.
She has a long history of working in radio...Williams has an incredibly charismatic personality, so it's no surprise she found success on the radio.
Her radio career spans back to the late '80s.When she was eventually hired by a Philadelphia radio station, her candidness on the air helped the station jump in its rankings.
In 2001, Williams was hired fulltime in a syndicated time slot.And by 2008, she was syndicated in numerous markets, spanning across the United States, eventually making it into the National Radio Hall of Fame.
But Williams left her radio show in 2009...It was time for her to focus completely on what would become her iconic talk show, The Wendy Williams Show.
The Wendy Williams Show has now been on the air for 11 years.
If you're looking for a show that has a pulse on trending topics and hot celebrity gossip, this is the talk show for you.Not to mention that Williams is a hilarious host, so it's no surprise that the show has been on the air for some time.
Along with hosting her talk show, Williams is also an actress...
She really can do it all.Don't believe it? Well, take a seat. Williams will prove you wrong.
Her lack of fear of holding back isn't always a good thing...Who remembers the time when she said that nobody feels sorry for Meghan Markle? Now that was savage.
But Williams' most recent comments have certainly ruffled some feathers...In a recent episode of The Wendy Williams Show, she was discussing the recent backlash against Beyonce for not standing up during Joaquin Phoenix's Golden Globe win.
Williams rushed to Beyonce's defense...Purely for the reason that "nobody is Beyonce," which isn't the most valid of reasons.
She makes a comment about Phoenix, claiming that she doesn't even know who he is...But she then starts showering the actor with compliments in regards to his looks, talking about how good looking he is.
This is when things take a turn for the worst...While gushing over his handsome and "striking" looks, Williams goes on to mention his cleft lip - all whilst mimicking it.
"I find it to be very attractive..."She poses with her finger pushing her lip up for a painful 10 seconds while the audience nervously laughs. Not cool, Wendy.
People are not happy.
