Wendy Williams Fires Staffers Amid HBCU Debacle


Last month Wendy Williams shocked fans after expressing her disdain for Historically Black Colleges and Universities during the Hot Topics segment of her day time talk show [click here if you missed that].

Now Wendy is cleaning house...

From Page Six
The Wendy Williams Show” has fired several producers in the wake of its host’s blundering remarks about the NAACP. We’re told longtime producer Jason Gabel and at least two other senior staff members were let go.
“The crew had a big party celebrating what they considered a season well done,” we’re told, and “the next day [some of them] got calls saying they’d been let go.”
We’re told execs want to retool the show, adding more current-affairs coverage and pop culture.

she saw a significant dip in her ratings = money coming and and decided to let some people go...she is stupid though, SHE is the one who uttered those words, trying to play devil's advocate/be funny. The joke is on you, Wendy.

This sounds just like something Wendy would do, mess up and blame somebody else. I can't stand how uses the fact she's a woman to explain her hypocritical comments.

Whatever, I'm kind of done with her.

Whoever she fired, I hope they spill the T on her racist cooning ass and really get her ass in trouble. This might be the beginning of the end for her horrible talk show.

I want to support a Black-owned production company, but I'm over Wendy. That aside, look deeper re: business and who's really calling the shots.

FYI: Google how Kathy Ireland Worldwide owns the management company that makes 10% off of Janet Jackson's income every year. Black people need to look deeper and stop working for others.

The HBCU mess made me think twice about supporting her show, then she made comments comparing the word bitch to calling someone the "N" word.... OLD LADY YOU JUST LOST ME AS A VIEWER.

she will be her own undoing, much like Oprah...when she started supporting Obama, her viewership went down by 7 to 10 percent. you have to be a dunce to not know that you do not talk politics in the workplace...i don't care if you OWN the company, the building, the network, etc. Use common sense. I think a lot of these celebs believe they are above the law, like Martha Stewart...and that the rules of society do not pertain to them...smh

@10:55 - How did I miss that!? She must be officially crazy to make that kind of statement. Yep, now I'm officially done with her too! (And this is not a bandwagon thing. I rode with her since WBLS in NYC, but she must be using again or getting really BAD advice.

TJMS 8+ million listeners along with activist Roland M. interview set the stage for bringing her comments under fire. We as a community can not continue to support high profile celebrities that wish to harm our educational institutions.

I've followed Wendy from her radio career and always recorded her shows. With the HBCU and NAACP comments I immediately stopped recording her show. Reminds me I need to unfollow her on IG and FB. She can't blame anyone but herself for those comments.

He blamed us for the comments too! We didnt understand what he meant. One thing for sure though he still refuses to apologize. But fired people to shift the blame.

All she said was "if I was white I might have a problem with HBCUs". Where is all this animus coming from. If I was white I'd feel some kind of way about it too!
