Wendy Williams made some rather interesting comments about the #MeToo movement and a recent grassroots campaign to boycott R. Kelly.

“It’s not going to work,” Williams said of the organizers of the #MuteRKelly campaign to ban the singer from the music industry. “Black people aren’t really good at protesting…not since the King march. It’s not going to work.”

“The #MeToo movement hasn’t affected R. Kelly, because R. Kelly, he wasn’t a #MeToo,” Williams continued. “Aaliyah voluntarily married him when she was 15 years old. And her parents voluntarily let her do it, when she was 15 years old. And that little girl that I saw from my own eye balls that he urinated on and he had his way with, was there at his house, she let it go down.”

Williams went on to blame the parents of R. Kelly’s alleged victims, and explained that she didn’t see a connection between the young women reportedly being kept away in the singer’s home and his long documented predatory behavior.

“The multiple allegations of R. Kelly holding women in his own home. Where are their parents? This is a whole different thing, it has nothing to do with #MeToo,” she added. “R. Kelly is just a very very sick man.”

Later in the same “Hot Topics” segment, Williams scoffed at the #MeToo movement.

“I’m sick of this #MeToo movement,” she said. “I love that people are speaking up for the first time and speaking out and everything, but now…I look at all men like you’re a #MeToo, all of them, all of them, which is not fair.”

Unsurprisingly, Williams’ comments didn’t go over well on Twitter. Take a look at reactions below.
