Wendy Williams has never been one to back away from controversy, but her recent comments about Jennifer Lawrence are bound to have a backlash.
The talk show host discussed the iCloud hacking scandal on her show, where Jennifer's nude photos were stolen and posted online along with a host of other female celebrities. While most people agree that looking at the photos is crummy at best and a sexual offense at worst, Wendy freely admits to looking at the pictures and doesn't think there's anything wrong with that.
She responded to Jen's comments in Vanity Fair that it should be her choice whether or not people look at the stolen images:
"Um, it's not your choice, it's in the Cloud and I've looked several times. So I guess I'm disgusting for looking?" Wendy said in front of her audience. "Clap if you've looked at Jennifer Lawrence's hacking pictures... Clap if you're lying because you really did look."
The 50-year-old went on to essentially blame Jennifer for the entire thing, saying there wouldn't have been anything to hack if the actress hadn't taken explicitly sexual photos.
"Jennifer Lawrence, you wanna know what? Don't sweat this, young lady. I mean, you're the one who took the pictures. Besides, Jen, you don't look bad under your clothes and I think the 'hackilation' has actually made your career even hotter," she said. "‘Cause she was red hot before but now it's like heat-seeking missile hot. So hold your head up with pride!"
Yeah, we're sure Jen will be THRILLED by the compliments, Wendy... Ugh.
With social media giants like Facebook and Instagram woven into our daily lives, does a boycott have real weight?
Kim Kardashian has nearly 190 million followers on Instagram, where she's in the habit of posting at least once a day.
If her followers were a nation, they would be the 8th most populous on the planet. But the citizens of Kardashia (Kimeroon? The United Kimdom?) will not be receiving any diplomatic news or thirst traps from their dear leader on Wednesday.
As she announced on Instagram on Tuesday, she is taking part in the one-day boycott of Instagram and Facebook organized by Stop Hate for Profit and promoted by other celebrities, from Katy Perry to Leonardo DiCaprio.
The model has accused photographer Jonathan Leder of sexually assaulting her in 2012.

Emily Ratajkowski isn't one to stay silent.
The model and actress, who's perhaps most widely recognized as "the girl from the 'Blurred Lines' music video," has used her platform over the past few years to engage in notable activism. She was spotted at Black Lives Matter protests in Los Angeles earlier this year and has been a loud advocate for women's rights, even serving as a spokesperson for Planned Parenthood.
