wendy williams transphobic
The daytime talk show host took her regular mocking of Jenner’s appearance to a whole new low today, during a segment on the “shocking” way he celebrated his birthday—which involved (GASP!) him painting his fingernails red….OH, THE HORROR! That's TRULY shocking!
During her monologue, Williams said how relieved she is that Jenner waited for his kids to grow up before making his “transition” and commented on how “awful” it would have been for them if he had turned up to their PTA meetings looking like he does now.
As Popdust previously reported, the tabloids have been relentless with vitriolic speculation, fueled by numerous, anonymous supposed “source” quotes, that the 65-year-old is undergoing gender reassignment—gleefully mocking Bruce over his hair, nails, body and even his Adam’s apple.
Woodbeck is one of many within the LGBT community to be outraged by the relentless bullying of Jenner—he slammed Williams on his Facebook page over today’s ignorant and transphobic comments:
Dear The Wendy Williams Show & Wendy, I can not even begin to express how embarrassed I am for you and your commentary on Bruce Jenner today. Wendy addressed the "news topic" [along the lines of] - "Thank god he waited for his kids to grown up before making this transition or whatever it is he's going through. Can you imagine how awful it would be for those kids if he showed up with a blowout, a shaved adams apple, pink nail polish, and smoking a cigarette to a PTA meeting? Could you imagine?"
Are you kidding me Ms. Williams? Insensitive and degrading much? You have NO idea what Bruce is going through (if anything at all) and clearly you need to brush up on how to talk about people in transition. Educate yourself on the matter before running your BIG LOUD OBNOXIOUS mouth. GURL, BYE!
Woodbeck urges Williams to stop with the ignorant comments and cheap laughs at Jenner’s expense, telling Popdust, "I'm really floored by the commentary that has been reoccurring from Wendy Williams which has consistently been transphobic and specifically those directed at Bruce Jenner.
"Whatever journey, if any, that Bruce is on should be treated with a gentle heart and hand. Wendy has done the exact opposite for a couple of laughs. It's mind blowing to me that someone with a platform like the one she has would be so careless. It is clear that Wendy needs to be educated on how to handle the topic of transgendered people."
Williams previously mocked Jenner in a segment about him dating his estranged wife Kris’ best friend, during her October 20 show.
“Bruce Jenner is reportedly dating…” William teased, before delivering the punchline, “ A WOMAN!” (Cue raucous laughter)
“And her name is Ron,” she said, before finishing the name, “da!” (Cue more laughter and sniggering)
“Ronda and Bruce-cetta, stepped out,” she quipped, “I’m playin’ …I’m playin’…that was a play, alright, do what you want with your life. Listen, when Bruce was at the Elton John concert we were so focused on his new blowout, that we didn’t realize Ronda was there too…”
Whatever, girlfriend—we're pretty sure that the 103 transgender people who were murdered in the four month period of Jan-May this year would be really laughing along with you, if they hadn’t been KILLED in hate crimes—well, at least the 14 who were “just” violently assaulted in the same time period are still around to appreciate your “edgy humor.”
Meanwhile, GLAAD has reached out to Wendy Williams and the show’s producers in an attempt to reach a resolution, and to provide much needed education, on the subject.

Planning a wedding is among the most stressful things you can do.
Basically everyone you know will be there, judging your choices of clothing, hair, decor, food, music...napkin rings. Okay, so maybe most wedding guests aren't actually scathing critics looking for your every misstep, but for a day that's supposed to be one of the happiest in your life, there's a hell of a lot of pressure to get things right.
Now imagine that you found the perfect venue—charming and rustic, with beautiful views, and plenty of room for all your guests. Does it even matter what that venue is called? What difference does it make if that perfect spot is called Stinkpile Manor, or Festering Wound Estate, or Boone Hall Plantation…
