Wendy Williams was dragged yesterday (February 13th) after she said that gay men “should stop wearing our skirts and our heels.” During her hot topics segment, Williams asked who in her audience would be going out for Galentine's Day. When she noticed that a few men in the crowd were applauding, she said, “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.”
She continued, “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.”
She added, “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 women that we are. No matter how gay.”
SOCIAL MEDIA RESPONDS
Of course, people had a lot to say on social media. One person tweeted, “Really? What sort of ignorance is coming out of your mouth regarding gay men wanting to be women!! Really Wendy?”
Another added, “That was really uncalled for. Gay men do not want to be women.”
Another person added, “You’re not the decider of who can be a woman. Every person gets to decide who they are.”
Later in the broadcast, Williams said she stands by everything she says on her show.
