Wendy Williams Tells Gay Men: 'Stop Wearing Our Skirts and Our Heels'

“Looky here now, gay men, you’ll never be the women that we are. No matter how gay”

Wendy Williams is facing backlash after telling gay men to “stop wearing our skirts and our heels” on her talkshow Thursday, adding that they will never “be the women that we are.”

On Thursday on her Hot Topics show, Williams was talking about Galentine’s Day, a holiday made popular by the TV show “Park and Recreation,” in which the ladies of the show went to brunch together on Valentine’s Day to celebrate the other women in their lives.

“If you’re a man and you’re clapping, you’re not even a part of this. You don’t understand the rules of the day. It’s women going out and getting saucy and then going home. You’re not a part,” she said.

“I don’t care if you’re gay,” she added. “You don’t get a [menstruation] every 28 days. You can do a lot that we do, but I get offended by the idea that we go through something you will never go through. And stop wearing our skirts and our heels. Just saying, girls, what do we have for ourselves?”

Lastly, she said, “Looky here now, gay men, you’ll never be the women that we are,” Williams said. “No matter how gay, sir.”

While her studio audience was laughing along, people were quick to condemn Williams on social media.

“Really?” one critic asked. “What sort of ignorance is coming out of your mouth regarding gay men wanting to be women!! Really Wendy?”

“That was really uncalled for,” another said. “Gay men do not want to be women.”

“You’re not the decider of who can be a woman,” added another. “Every person gets to decide who they are.”

However, some supported her: “Thank you for saying what we as women want to scream everyday. #gaymen #letushavesomethimg.”

A spokesperson for Williams declined TheWrap’s request for comment. TheWrap also reached out to The Wendy Williams show for comment.

7 Stars Wendy Williams Has Bashed: From Beyonce to Tupac (Photos)

  • Wendy Williams gained notoriety for being outspoken. Although that may be a good quality for a talk host, it can also get her into a little bit of trouble.

    TheWrap looks at seven of the celebrities the daytime talk show host has feuded with. 

  • Jesse Williams
    Jesse Williams’ powerful BET Awards speech, won the hearts of many. But Wendy Williams was not one of them.

    She said she would be offended if there was a historically white college or the National Association for White People only.

  • Alyssa Milano
    The actress appeared on Williams’ show and talked about how she’s become a breast feeding advocate after posting pictures of herself breastfeeding her own kids. 

    She was shocked to learn that Williams herself had strong opinions on the topic, saying she doesn’t need to see that and that she’d breastfeed her child in the car.

  • Whitney Houston
    Williams had a phone interview (if you even want to call it that) with the late Whitney Houston, and it didn’t go well, to put it mildly.

    The interview pretty much consisted of Houston cursing Williams out after she kept asking about her drug problem.

  • Tupac
    According to a report by VH1, Williams had made claims that Tupac had been raped in jail.

    The late rapper came back with “Why U Turn On Me” which took jabs at her weight among other things.

  • Caitlyn Jenner
    Wendy Williams called out the transitioning star (at the time still known as Bruce) for wearing nail polish.

    “He at least waited for his kids to grow up, so he doesn’t have to go to PTA meetings with a shaved Adam’s apple, and a blowout, and pink nails, and a cigarette,” said the talk show host.

    GLAAD was definitely not happy about her comments.

  • Mariah Carey
    Although Williams has come for Mariah Carey before, it looks like Carey has had enough of Williams’ antics after the talkshow host called her “too fragile” for reality TV.

    She posted a video on social media and captioned it “Don’t come for us unless we call for you” and tagged Williams in the post.

  • Beyoncé
    Williams came for the Queen herself. 

    According to TMZ, in light of Beyoncé’s documentary premiering, the talk show host said that although she’s looking forward to watching the film, the singer “sounds like she has a fifth grade education.” 

    She also accused Bey of stealing the choreography for “Formation.”
