Wendy Williams is notorious for her apathetic attitude and ability to poke fun at celebrities and people in general, but in a recent episode, the talk show host crossed the line.
Williams brought up Oscar nominee Joaquin Phoenix and how she found him "strangely attractive." She then went on to mock Phoenix's upper lip scar, which she thought was from a cleft palate surgery. For nearly 10 seconds, the host pulled her lip up and mocked a cleft lip, and the internet rightfully clapped back.
The infamous gossip queen has made people mad in the past and rarely apologizes for it, but this time she retracted her words and made a donation to an organization that helps people with cleft palates.
The moment was so incredibly rude and inconsiderate.
At 10:30, Williams begins talking about her attraction to A-lister Joaquin Phoenix, but it all goes downhill when she mimics cleft palate syndrome by pulling up her upper lip. The imitation was uncalled for and so wrong. It took her days before she recognized that she had been insensitive.
