Wendy Williams’ Throwback Pic Went Viral for All the Wrong Reasons

2 wrongs don't make a right. Even if it is Wendy Williams.

-By Soraya Joseph

Yesterday the queen of daytime TV (and all-time shade) took to her social media to share a throwback holiday pic of herself as a kid. Aware of the unapologetic adolescent phase that most pre-teens endure, Wendy braced fans with an honest disclaimer that she was more or less, well, “awkward.”

3 days until Christmas! ???Here I am as an awkward 12 year old. #TBT #holidays #christmas

Sadly, it didn’t take long for followers and cyber bullies to whiff out their next victim and send Wendy’s pic viral for all the wrong reasons. And what started off as an innocent IG pic soon turned into ruthless memes, tweets and comments dragging Wendy within an inch of her self-esteem.

Others, however, chose to clapback at those dissing Wendy’s throwback, pointing out that two wrongs don’t make a right:

However, disses are nothing new to Wendy. The 5’11 talk show host has opened up on her show about being referred to as everything from “Wendy Wale-iams” to a “man,” all throughout grade school and her career. Those that dragged Wendy even defended their reason for doing so by pointing out Wendy’s history of coming for celebs.
One thing is for sure is that at the age of 52, Wendy has gone on record to say she’s developed tough skin and of course, point out her success as the best revenge.
