The fascination with what other folks do with their lives never ceases to amaze me.
On Wednesday, Wendy Williams teared up during her segment covering the story of Zaya Wade, daughter of NBA great Dwyane Wade. Williams praised Zaya for courageously knowing who she is at such a young age, and preached acceptance from others, saying, “For those of you who don’t understand it or don’t like it — don’t say anything.” One day later, Wendy delivered a message to “gay men,” telling them to “stop wearing our skirts and our heels.”
While discussing Galentine’s Day, an unofficial holiday created by Parks and Recreation where it’s “ladies celebrating ladies,” Williams wasn’t enthusiastic to see gay men clapping when she polled her audience to see who was celebrating the holiday on February 13.
“If you’re a man and you’re clapping, you’re not even a part of this,” Williams said, per People. “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.”
“I don’t care if you’re gay. You don’t get a [menstruation] every 28 days,” she added. “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.” The host went even further on her tirade against gay men, specifically those who push for gender fluidity in their fashion choices.

“And stop wearing our skirts and our heels,” Williams continued. “Just saying, girls, what do we have for ourselves? Looky here now, gay men, you’ll never be the women that we are. No matter how gay.” Considering Wendy is the same person who said if you “don’t understand it or don’t like it — don’t say anything,” she sure had plenty to say about men wearing skirts and heels.
Many people noticed the hypocrisy in her talk against men in gender fluid fashion especially after she defended Zaya. Take a look at some of the reactions below and let us know what you think. Thoughts? Do you believe Wendy was wrong for her statements?
How does Wendy Williams go from crying tears of joy over the Wade family supporting Zaya to saying gay men need to stop wearing heels and skirts I hate it here

Wendy Williams, DAMN! She’s trying to cancel herself. A day after crying about Zaya, she says gay men need to stop wearing heels and skirts and then to bring up that they’ll never have a cycle is just disgusting, especially after yesterday’s show.

@WendyWilliams was crying over Zaya Wade in one breath and then attacking gay men for wanting to participate in Valentine’s Day in the other. Are you an ally to the LGBT community or not, ma’am? #WendyWilliams <3 pic.twitter.com/pMjRGaCMey

@WendyWilliams How can you cry about Zaya yesterday for her bravery and talk on equality and today tell gay men to “stop wearing skirts and heels”. You are coming off ignorant and disgusting with these comments. HAVE SEVERAL SEATS before you cancel yourself.
