Wendy williams sheds light on the murder of the TikTok star Wavy on her TV show – something her mom and brother say she now has to apologize for… because she painted it in a bad light and also disrespected him outright.
We spoke with Swavy’s mother and older brother – Chanell clark and Rahkim clark, respectively – about the segment Wendy did earlier this week on camera… where she introduced Swavy to her audience by comparing social media followers and throwing a not-so-flattering photo of him – this before d ‘get to the lede … namely, him being killed.
You can see the clip for yourself… and it’s obvious Chanelle and Rahkim are upset – not to mention the dozens of people who watched it at home, who were outraged by her handling of such a sensitive topic. It turns out the Millers are in the same boat.
Check out our interview … Rahkim takes the lead in explaining why Wendy’s words were so hurtful. As he points out – it’s not just another celebrity gossip story that she can normally cover in her daily programming… it’s their own flesh and blood, and it’s real life for them.
As angry as he is, it’s probably nothing compared to Chanelle – who, by the way, says she saw her son get shot on Monday in Delaware and was actually with him during his last breaths. She categorically tells TMZ… Wendy owes her family / family a huge sorry for discussing her boy in this way.
The Millers say they thought Wendy twisted Swavy as a thug or someone who hit the street, and that couldn’t be further from the truth. So they demand a full mea culpa … and a correction for good measure.
The point is … the youngster was already blowing up online, but his mom and brother feel like she’s exposed him to a whole new demographic in the worst possible way – tarnishing his legacy. .
Wendy doesn’t appear to have responded to the backlash yet.
