Check out the clip and decide for yourself. Volume up for this one...
Wendy Williams really farted on live TV. I am unable. https://t.co/rZBLijgauZ— Randy (@Randy)1579440228.0
And now, it's what we've all been waiting for...
via: GettyWendy has finally responded to the fartgate scandal.
On her show on Thursday, Wendy addressed a "very, very serious" headline during Hot Topics... Fartgate.
via: GettyAnd she denied it all. Of course.
Wendy had a huge speech ready...
via: GettyShe was really adamant that she did not pass wind, guys. “I don’t lean over like this to release a fart, I’m leaning over like this because it’s comfortable," Wendy explained as she addressed the “lean" fans noticed in the viral clip. “I like to release my hips and lean."
She went on to insist that she hardly ever farts...
via: GettyOkay, Wendy. We've all used that one before. "As a matter of fact, I barely fart because gas gets released several different ways and mine is belching because all I do is talk."
The excuses were simply flowing.
via: Getty"...I was like, ‘No, if I farted I definitely would’ve been laughing because farts are always funny,'" Wendy admitted before she played the “fartgate" clip on the screen behind her.
She then went on to say that, if she had farted, she would have definitely soiled herself.
via: GettyNot a nice image, Wendy! “I went on with the story, and you know a girl like me would’ve been laughing at that. Second of all, by the sound of that fart, I would’ve had to go change my costume. I would’ve left a mark in the seat," she admitted. “I wouldn’t have even saved the costume, I would’ve thrown it away. It would’ve probably been soiled."
I think the presenter simply dug herself a deeper hole there...
via: GettyJust admit it, Wendy!
People weren't buying her excuse.
