Wendy Williams is under fire after making some controversial statements about Jesse Williams‘ BET Awards speech.

“I must say to you, he was on BET. His speech was very poignant,” Williams said on her show this week. “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.”

Williams continued by saying “racism sucks,” but many fans online were already fed up. Many compared Williams to Stacy Dash, who had plenty thoughts of her own on Jesse Williams.
