Wendy Williams’ Anti HBCU and NAACP Comments Cost Her a Major Sponsorship?

According to B. Scott, Wendy’s controversial comments on HBCUs and the NAACP didn’t sit well with a HBCU graduate in very high places.

B. Scott writes:

As you’ve probably already heard, while discussing Jesse Williams’ BET Awards acceptance speech during her ‘Hot Topics’ segment, Wendy basically denounced the existence of both HBCUs and the NAACP.

“On the other hand, I would be really offended if there was a school that was known as a historically white college. We have historically black colleges. What if there was the National Organization for White People, only? There’s the NAACP,” said Wendy.

Well, sources exclusively tell lovebscott.com that Wendy LOST the show’s Chevrolet sponsorship as a result of her anti-HBCU and anti-NAACP comments.

In April of this year, The Wendy Williams show struck an all-inclusive deal with Chevrolet, Carat Media and ACE Media Corp. to include on-air promotion of the 2016 Chevy Malibu. The activation included custom digital content, social media marketing, and was set to continue for the rest of the year.

Not anymore.

Our sources say that Wendy has been “sobbing all week” over the loss, although she refuses to apologize.

We’re not sure who exactly pulled the plug, but it should be noted that Andrea Holmes Thompkins, President and CEO of ACE Media Corp (the company responsible for facilitating the Chevy partnership), graduated from Howard University.

  1. I don’t like to wish ill on anyone but part of me hopes this is true. Wendy has been putting down all things black since she got this talk show. And she’s never once apologized or got in any trouble for it. It’s time for her to see that she can’t just say what she wants about us anymore. We do matter, and it’s time for sellouts like her to understand that. She would never say something anti white.

  2. Good. Wendy figured since she was putting down the black community, she had nothing to lose. This is how you know she doesn’t see any value in the black community. People left and right are starting to be held accountable for their anti-black rhetoric and it’s about time.

    1. That’s what made this whole situation so infuriating. She doesn’t understand the history behind HBCUs and she puts white superiority on a pedestal. She can’t even fathom that you can be a successful black person and graduate from a HBCU. She thinks selling out is necessary for success as well. She’s such an embarrassment.

  3. Well Wendy is on her damage control game now. Roland Martin will be on her show this week!! I won’t be watching. I’ll wait for someone to post the clips to YouTube!!

  4. Wendy f-cked up this time. But what I don’t understand is why people couldn’t see through her sh-t before she said this dumb sh-t. She really doesn’t f-ck with any famous black women and throws them under the bus for white women like Adele all the time. Now I don’t need her c–n a-s trying to pretend she’s down now because those sponsorships are dwindling. F-ck that fake sh-t. Stand behind your self hate so we can continue to weed you weak c–ns out.

  5. Wendy williams show should be canceled and should have been canceled years ago. It’s people like Wendy is why Black people are being murdered. Because wendy sales the black people out just to have a talk show. Wendy williams show is more dangerous than Love and Hip Hop Atlanta. Both shows need to be CANCELED.

  6. Honestly these are the kind of things we have to do to get change. Money talks. We need to pressure more big businesses to take away money from anti-black people and platforms. But we can’t pressure them to that if we don’t first take our money out of their companies. Please boycott these major companies who have been silent on black lives matter but have been speaking up for police officers. Also put your money in black owned banks.

  7. I do watch Wendy’s show on occasion as I enjoy hot topics. However it seems she does have some sort of attitude with Black women. She kinda looks for something negative to say especially if the other lady looks better than her which isnt hard to do. Wendy is one day from being homely.
