Wendy Williams slams Beyonce – says she sounds like an uneducated 5th Grader
Talk show host Wendy Williams received a cold response when her audience turned on her at the taping of her syndicated Fox TV show. The audience reacted badly to Williams harsh comment about Actress, Singer Beyonce.
Williams claims that she is a fan of Beyonce's music, but it's Beyonce's speaking voice and inarticulate diction that makes the singer seem uneducated.
Williams was discussing Beyonce's self directed documentary movie. In referring to watching Beyonce's movie, she slammed Beyonce's manner of speaking saying she will need "closed captions" to read what Beyonce is saying because you can't understand her speech.
Dec. 9, NY Daily News reported "I’m going to be watching this documentary even if she doesn’t introduce us to new stuff. I’m watching,” Williams said. “I’m watching because fortunately one of the TVs in our kitchen has closed captioning, so I’ll be able to understand what she says. You know Beyoncé can’t talk. Beyoncé sounds like she has a fifth-grade education. She can’t talk.”
After the shows' audience reacted poorly to Williams comment, she responded back to her audience and didn't back down from her statement about Beyonce. Williams said “Excuse me! I just said I was a fan, but we have to call a spade a spade. I mean ... honestly. And we really do have the closed captioning just for times like that.”
Beyoncé's documentary will reveal her behind-the-scenes life with new baby Blue Ivy Carter, the singer’s business projects and concert footage. It will air Feb. 16, 2013 on HBO.
