Wendy Williams' Mouth Causes Her to Lose Chevy Sponsorship
*Welp! It looks like Wendy Williams‘ mouth has written a check her you-know-what can’t cash. And it’s all because of her outrageous comments this past week HBCUs and the NAACP.
Of course we’re referring to what she said about actor Jesse Williams’ BET Awards acceptance speech during her ‘Hot Topics’ segment. She went on to basically denounce 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,” the gossip talk show host said.
Well, according to Love B. Scott, sources say that Wendy’s anti-HBCU and anti-NAACP comments led to her losing her show’s Chevrolet sponsorship!
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.
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.
Dang, if this is true, maybe now she’ll take the advice Roland Martin gave in his epic take-down of her in the video below:
