Wendy Williams is known for being outrageously outspoken, but one recent comment has caused a lot of anger, as it was about our beloved Joaquin Phoenix.
The TV show host cruelly mocked the actor's cleft lip scar, angering millions of people all over the world.
But she can't seem to keep her foot out of her mouth. Scroll on for her latest horrific comments...

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.

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 eleven 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.
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.
And another comment that ruffled some feathers?

Williams rushed to Beyonce's defense...
She made a comment about Phoenix, claiming that she doesn't even know who he is...
This is when things took a turn for the worse.
"I find it to be very attractive..."
People were not happy.

And now Williams has put her foot in it again.
As you've probably realized, today is Valentine's Day.The most romantic day of the year is here!
But with Valentine's Day...Comes Galentine's day, February 13th - a Parks and Recreation invention celebrating female friendships.
Williams mentioned the day on her show.
"If you’re a man and you’re clapping, you’re not even a part of this.""You don’t understand the rules of the day. It’s women going out and getting saucy and then going home. You’re not a part."
"I don’t care if you’re gay. You don’t get a [menstruation] every 28 days.""You can do a lot that we do, but I get offended by the idea that we go through something you will never go through."
"And stop wearing our skirts and our heels!""Just saying, girls, what do we have for ourselves?"
Unsurprisingly, she's faced some rather intense backlash.
#WendyWilliams trying to alienate the gay community when they are some of her biggest supporters. Oh dear. https://t.co/ukVgemXO2e— Wendy Woo (@Wendy Woo)1581630146.0
