Wendy Williams Loses Chevrolet Sponsorship Dealing After HBCU Comments
We recently reported that the badly built talk show host recently got on her uppity high horse to discuss Jesse Williams’ incredibly relevant and powerful BET Awards speech.
Unfortunately, the words must have been lost upon Wendy because she went totally left with her thoughts about race in America. Check out the clip below:
“I would be really offended if there was a school known as a historically white college,” Williams says. “We have historically black colleges.”
Well, according to B. Scott the talk show host has lost a very lucrative deal following her idiotic 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.
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.
Maybe next time Wendy will think a little harder before she throws her words around.
