Wendy Williams Cries, Apologizes For Rape Accuser Comments

Wendy Williams Cries, Apologizes For Rape Comments

Wendy Williams is apologizing for the comments she made about rapper Nelly’s rape accuser. The outspoken talk show host had received some backlash, after some considered her comments insensitive. On Monday, she weighed in on the controversy, stating that the alleged victim “put herself in that situation.” She added:

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.

However, on Tuesday she clarified and apologized for her statements. Wendy explained,

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. Maybe cavalierly you caught my comments, ‘You got to watch where you go.’ I didn’t mean anything by it.

She became emotional while reflecting on her own experience as a teen stating,

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 shared a personal story about how her grandfather used to send her to get cigars for him located in pool hall filled with men who she described as disgusting.

All I’m saying regarding young women and 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.

    Wendy is my girl! She has shown multiple times that not only can she take what she dished but she can be Woman and real enough to apologize when she’s wrong. For those two reasons alone I love her. Not to mention she’s funny as hell and says the things a lot of us think but won’t say and has been doing the dang thang for Yearssss

  • Coco Mcluvin

    I get what she was saying and totally agree.

    I think women she be able to do what and go where they want but that does not mean be cautious and be aware because you have absolutely no control over what another person will do. I think we all have a responsibility to keep ourselves out of harms way. Including the men who put themselves in situations to be accused of anything.

      As a male child, I was asleep in one of the rooms and a predatory jailbird cousin tried molest me. Predators are everwhere. Don’t blame the victim.

      • Coco Mcluvin

        You situation is completely different, nor did I blame the victim. I said people should be more responsible.

  • Ruby Taylor

    I don’t like her. At the same time, I’m not so against her that I’ll scrutinize every little thing she said. I understand what she was trying to say and I agree. We are responsible for our decisions, not for our attackers decisions. As long as I make good, healthy decisions for myself (not drink too much, have $ to get home & chose my companions wisely)… I can hold my head up high and enjoy life.

  • Tippie Toes

    Please stop smacking your mouth in between your sentences its extremely difficult to gauge is your sincere.

  • Shag

    She damned sure should apologize. I hope Nelly is not guilty, but if he is, he’s got to pay the cost. No woman “puts herself in the position” for predatory behavior. Would Wendy excuse Harvey Weinstein?

    • Renee

      Exactly! Since when is accepting an invitation “putting yourself in a situation”!?!? This is why most women don’t come forward.

    • ACTION411

      You stated, “No woman “puts herself in the position” for predatory behavior.”

      Yes women do! They do it all the time! Women want to act oblivious to their surroundings, instead of acclimating to their surroundings.

      Women are going to keep getting raped and killed, if they continue to ignore the realities of our society.

    Wendy suffers from foot in mouth disease! She knew exactly what she said and what she meant. Not buying the crocodile tears Wendy. Try using your position to uplift women. Apologizing because you were called out on your insensitive comments not because you realize they were insensitive. Be mindful of your comments Wendy…..impressionable young men and women watch your show. IJS
