Are You Buying Her Tears? Wendy Williams Backtracks On Blaming Nelly’s Alleged Rape Victim
Two days ago, while discussing Nelly’s rape case as part of her hot topics, Wendy Williams went into full victim-blaming mode saying, “If she did not put herself in that situation, this wouldn’t have happened. Young lady, you’ve got to stay out of tour buses.”
As you can imagine, those words didn’t sit well with anyone who wasn’t in her audience that day and plenty took to the Internet to chastise the always-upsetting talk show host. And, as a result, through tears, yesterday, Wendy attempted to apologize for her atrocious comments, insisting she didn’t “mean anything” by what she said.
“It’s never an easy job sitting here in the lavender chair by myself with nobody to bounce off of. Sometimes I might say something that you don’t understand, but I am the girl to cop to it,” she began before regurgitating her remarks from the previous day.
“Maybe, cavalierly, you caught my comments saying ‘you gotta watch where you go.’ I didn’t mean anything by it. What I meant is, once upon a time there was a girl named Wendy and she was only 13 years old but looked like a woman,” she said through tears, explaining how her grandfather used to send her to the pool hall to buy cigars.
“Those men in there were disgusting. So all I’m saying regarding young women — I apologize if my message was met with callousness — but what I meant to say is young ladies, we should be able to go wherever we want to go, but we always have to know where the exits are. We always have to have our $20 bill, just in case. And we have to be aware. That’s all I was saying, I apologize.”
Is all forgiven in your eyes?
