Wendy Williams is apologising to LGBTQ+ community after making homophobic and transphobic comments on her Thursday show, she vows to do better.
Wendy got herself in trouble after asked her studio audience on Thursday who was planning to celebrate Galentine’s Day, an unofficial holiday created on the NBC show “Parks & Recreation” where women celebrate the other women in their lives.
She went off on gay men planning to celebrate the unofficial holiday, because she felt it’s a women-only occasion.
“If you’re a man and you’re clapping, you’re not even a part of this,” said Williams, 55. “You don’t understand the rules of the day. It’s women going out and getting saucy and then going back 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 didn’t stop there. She instructed the LBGTQ community to “stop wearing our skirts and our heels,” referencing the androgynous style of stars like Billy Porter.
“Looky here now, gay men, you’ll never be the woman that we are. No matter how gay,” Williams added.
In a video posted to Twitter Friday, the host apologised for the comments.
“I did not mean to offend my LGBTQ+ community,” she said. “One thing I can tell you right now is I never do the show in a place of malice”
She added, “I didn’t mean to hurt anybody’s feelings. I’m just having a conversation. If you know me long enough, then you know… I’m not out of touch, except for perhaps yesterday for saying what I said. So I deeply apologize… I will do better.”
