Wendy Williams Reacts To Paula Deen’s Racial Comments

If you weren’t on Twitter yesterday, you missed one of the funniest days on Twitter in 2013.  Once the internets got a hold of Paula Deen and her racial comments, (read about it here), we all proceeded to weigh in with funny tweets and an epic hashtag #PaulasBestDishes.  So if WE were all moved to say something about it, you know the Queen of Talk Wendy Williams had to say something about it.  She opened up to ET Online about her feelings surrounding the controversy.

Wendy Williams Watch What Happens Live Wendy Williams Reacts To Paula Deens Racial Comments

“This is something that has been swirling around about Paula Deen for longer than this story.  It’s just a shame to hear that she has admitted in her deposition that she uses the word,” Williams said, going on to say, “She seems to think that it’s okay.  It’s not okay.  It just goes to show you money doesn’t buy you class, it only exposes who you really are. Stupid is as stupid does.”

Williams continued: “She said a lot of ignorant things and a lot of very revealing things about who she is when she’s out of the kitchen.”

You know, it doesn’t shock me.  Paula is from the south and if there’s anywhere were current-day racism runs rampant (and at times unabashedly) it’s in the south.  There hasn’t been any word out of Paula‘s camp so who knows if she’s even going to make a statement or apology.  But I wouldn’t hold my breath.

  1. i agree stupid is what stupid does

  2. Paula’s people responded today, first by saying Paula grew up in south 60 years ago when everyone was using the word, However, she’s not racist!!!

    “[Paula] was born 60 years ago when America’s South had schools that were segregated, different bathrooms, different restaurants and Americans rode in different parts of the bus. This is not today.”

    “To be clear Ms. Deen does not find acceptable the use of this term under any circumstance by anyone nor condone any form of racism or discrimination. “

  3. I agree….FOH !!

  4. I agree with Wendy Williams!

  5. Did she just quote Forrest Gump?

  6. Paula going to a party and love to tell some of your jokes please share them with me . I want to be the life of the party .

  7. Wendy Williams has a history of dissing celebrities. “Hello Hollywood” has an article “10 Celebs Who Have Beef(s) With Wendy Williams”. The list now includes 2 more in NeNe Leaks and Paula Deen. Wendy loves to stir the s*it and smiles her way thru it. I posted the facts of Paula on the Today show this morning but it was removed from Wendy’s Facebook page. She still has ignorant people defending her tirade towards Paula.
    Please don’t let Wendy get away with it.
    Thanks.
