Television host Wendy Williams is known for “saying it like she means it” spilling the tea since she stepped on the entertainment scene as a gossip-y radio personality.

Normally, Williams is catching from celebrities, but this week, everyone is giving her plenty of side eyes. Unless you’ve been hiding from civilization, then you already know that Williams’ made some offensive comments about HBCUs and the NAACP while discussing Jesse Williams’ BET Awards acceptance speech during the ‘Hot Topics’ segment of her show:

“On the other hand, I would be really offended if there was a school that was known as a historically white college. We have historically black colleges. What if there was the National Organization for White People, only? There’s the NAACP.”

After social media drug her back and forth through the mud for her comments, it’s now alleged that Williams lost the show’s Chevrolet sponsorship as a direct result of her comments, according to Lovebscott.com. While there has yet to be an official announcement made of the parting, sources also told the site that the host has been “sobbing all week” but refuses to apologize.

Another interesting fact that should be noted is the fact that Andrea Holmes Thompkins, President and CEO of ACE Media Corp (the company responsible for facilitating the Chevy partnership), is a proud graduate of the illustrious Howard University.

So, y’all do the math, and we’ll keep you updated.
