Wendy Williams is clapping back after fans commented that her family appeared “white” in an old family photo, posted by the Wendy Williams Show host. Wendy shared sentimental details about her family members snapped in the old wedding photo, mentioning her mother, aunt and grandparents.
“Okay I’m gonna eat today. Healthy eating. My grandmother named me Wendy Joan. My cool aunt was a model. This is her wedding day. My mom is strong for me. My grandfather was worried for me. I talk to them all every day in my head & my mom in Miami❤,” Wendy Williams captioned the photo.
“Your family looks white,” one follower commented.
“Do u have white ancestry?” another asked.
Wendy Williams addressed the comments in a later post—calling out her followers for their “skin color obsession” in the pic’s caption.
“My earlier picture is my grandfather – from New Jersey – and my grandmother from Virginia with my mom and aunt…we are black American. I can’t get over your skin color obsession. I’m watching ‘A Killer In My Home’ on LMN. The food is serious. King crab, veggie lettuce wrap plus the secret butter. What’s your dinner?”
