Wendy Williams fat-shamed Kanye West and said she 'wouldn't let him be alone with his children'

Wendy’s comments about Kanye’s body were completely inappropriate.

IF THERE’S ONE thing that American TV host Wendy Williams is known for, it’s speaking her mind. However, on Wednesday’s episode of  The Wendy Williams Show, she took it way too far.

Entering the studio to the usual cheering and applause, Wendy sat down and said:

So! On another note, Kanye West has really lost his mind. And I don’t mean that in a humorous way, we’ve seen him on a slippery slope for a long time. This is really sad, y’all.

To be honest, she should have just left it at that.

Wendy offered the audience some context on Kanye’s tweets and his involvement with Donald Trump. Initially, she seemed concerned. However, it very quickly became clear that her comments were not coming from a place of concern or sympathy.

What we thought, was that he did a stretch in a psychiatric facility, and that he was out and trying to get himself back together. But, he hasn’t been the same since that breakdown. He hasn’t been the same since he married Kim.

 Later in the show, Williams said:

Do you trust that behind the wheel? I wouldn’t let him be alone with the children. I wouldn’t let him drive in the car with the children unless someone else was driving.

She went on to take aim at Kanye’s appearance, comparing him to Rob Kardashian.

Now look honey, this is not just the usual weight. Look, he’s got fatty knock knees – which run in the family. So, welcome to the club!
He needs a breast reduction. His belly is… Ew, just slovenly. You look worse than Rob Kardashian on Rob’s worst day. Forget the idea that he’s wearing the Make America Great Again hat, we all want America to be great again. I’m talking about the neck down. What a mess.


She continued to tear into Kanye and Robert’s appearances:

At least Rob gained his in the belly and the booty. [Kanye] blew up like a woman. You know how hard you have to eat to get like this as a man?

Regardless of someone’s behaviour or opinions, these comments are extremely out of line, and they make it fairly clear that Wendy’s not too worried about Kanye’s current and potentially fragile state of mind.

Nothing is achieved from mocking Kanye’s body. Yeah, she might get a few cheap laughs from audience members, but she’s telling people with body-types similar to Kanye, and basically anyone who doesn’t have the body of an athlete, that they are disgusting, which is really not okay.
