Wendy Williams Offers Tearful Apology Over Anti-Gay Remarks: “I Apologize…I Did Not Mean To Offend”

Daytime talk show queen Wendy Williams offered a monologue yesterday that many in the LGBTQ community took offense to. On yesterday’s show, Wendy shared her dissatisfaction with gay men wearing women’s clothes.

To make her point that she’s tired of seeing men assume feminine attire, Wendy also educated her viewers over the fact that men–shockingly–don’t get periods every month. So, according to Wendy, men should not wear high heels.

“If you’re a man, stop clapping, you’re not even a part of this,” she said. “You don’t understand the rules of the day. It’s women going out and getting saucy and then going home (alone). You’re not a part. I don’t care if you’re gay. You don’t get a period 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? Looky here now, gay men, you’ll never be the woman that we are, No matter how gay.”

It was an odd public statement from Wendy, who has long enjoyed immense popularity within the LGBTQ community.

Its unclear if that popularity is now in jeopardy.

“I’ll start by saying, I apologize”, Wendy began in her apology. “I did not mean to offend my LGBTQ plus community on yesterday’s show”, Wendy said, claiming she didn’t realize she’d stepped in it until she saw the second run of her show.

She also said she never does her show with malice.

“I didn’t mean to hurt anybody’s feelings…I’m just having a conversation”, Wendy said, tearing up. She then said her philosophy is, “live and let live”, while claiming she’s not out of touch with changing times.

Wendy’s apology probably came after she noticed a day-long cascade of criticism that came down the pike for her on Twitter yesterday.

Wendy Williams recently divorced her husband of nearly 23 years, Kevin Hunter. The couple split after Kevin’s jumpoff gave birth to a daughter.

Scandalously, Kevin had set up his concubine in a luxury apartment merely a couple of miles away from the home he shared with his wife, who was recovering in rehab while Kevin was philandering.

The Wendy Williams Show has been renewed by Fox into the year 2022.

Wendy is expected to address the controversy on today’s episode of her show.
