Wendy Williams made some comments on Jesse Williams BET Awards acceptance speech on her show Wednesday, and landed herself in a whole bunch of hot water as a result.
“I must say to you, he was on BET. His speech was very poignant,” she began. “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.”

Immediately after she said those words, she could tell her audience disagreed, even remarking on the quiet that fell over the room. Well, Twitter is not staying silent:
Wendy Williams talmbout she'd be offended if there were Historically White Colleges. FOOL, EVERY COLLEGE THAT ISN'T AN HBCU IS JUST THAT.
