Wendy Williams Under Fire for Saying She is Tired of #MeToo Movement

Wendy Williams is catching a lot of flak following her disturbing remarks about R. Kelly and the #MeToo movement.

According to The Grio, the show host kicked off her show last night with commentary about why she has a problem with the recent campaign to boycott R. Kelly.

“It’s not going to work,” the show host said of the organizers of the #MuteRKelly, adding, “Black people aren’t really good at protesting…not since the King march. It’s not going to work.”

She continued, saying disturbing things about the late Aaliyah who reportedly got married to Kelly when she was only 15, the famous paedophilia charge against Kelly, and the recent sexual slavery complaints filed against him.

“The #MeToo movement hasn’t affected R. Kelly, because R. Kelly, he wasn’t a #MeToo,” Williams continued. “Aaliyah voluntarily married him when she was 15 years old. And her parents voluntarily let her do it, when she was 15 years old. And that little girl that I saw from my own eye balls that he urinated on and he had his way with, was there at his house, she let it go down.”

“The multiple allegations of R. Kelly holding women in his own home. Where are their parents? This is a whole different thing, it has nothing to do with #MeToo,” she continued. “R. Kelly is just a very very sick man.”

During the Hot Topics segment, the show host then went after the #MeToo movement, saying, “I’m sick of this #MeToo movement,” she said. “I love that people are speaking up for the first time and speaking out and everything, but now…I look at all men like you’re a #MeToo, all of them, all of them, which is not fair.”
