Wendy Williams — Viewers Tweet #CancelWendyWilliams After She Appears To Mock Death Of Drew Carey’s Ex-Fiancée w/ ‘Price Is Right’ Reference
Wendy Williams is making headlines again! Her latest comments upset some fans after she seemed to make fun of the passing of actor and “The Price Is Right” host Drew Carey’s former fiancée.
According to reports, sex therapist Dr. Amie Harwick died after her ex-boyfriend, Gareth Pursehouse, allegedly pushed her from a third-floor balcony. Drew Carey took time to mourn by canceling “The Prince Is Right” tapings.
Still, Wendy Williams seemed to joke about it when she referenced the iconic “come on down” line from “The Price Is Right.”
“She was killed, not by Drew, but by the… Come on down!… so… “

And Twitter birthed the hashtag #CancelWendyWilliams because of it
If she can joke about a murder victim, make fun of someone with a cleft palate, and tell the gay community to leave skirts and heels to the women, we can push right back. Remember when she took that fall on air? “Wendy Williams, come on down!”#CancelWendyWilliams pic.twitter.com/WIgaTJTYjr

She has yet to clarify the reference. But it comes just days after she sparked outrage by some over her comments about gay men.
She said on her show Thursday (Feb. 13),
“And stop wearing our skirts and our heels. Just saying, girls, what do we have for ourselves?… They’ll never get the menopause, I got the menopause, I still got dry under nose, the pimple in my dimple disappeared, but… looky here now, gay men, you’ll never be the women that we are. No matter how gay sir.”
