Wendy Williams Loses Sponsorship After HBCU/NAACP Comments

(AllHipHop News) Wendy Williams has reportedly lost a sponsorship following her recent controversial statements on HBCUs and the NAACP.

According to reports, Chevrolet severed ties with the show after the TV personality made negative comments on the two predominately black organizations during the “Hot Topic” segment of “The Wendy Williams Show.”

“I would be really offended if there was a school that was known as a historically White college. We have historically Black colleges,” Wendy Williams said.

“What if there was a national organization for white people only? There’s the NAACP. By the way, what is the ‘C’ for? Colored? Are we still using colored?,” Williams continued.

What makes the situation a bit worse is that she said it after Jesse Williams’ controversial speech during the BET Awards.

Ironically, the CEO of ACE Media Corp, whose company managed Wendy’s sponsorship, was a graduate from Howard University.

The deal with Chevrolet was first made in April, which included promotion for the 2016 Chevy Malibu, according to the report.

Williams have been getting a lot of criticism for her controversial comments and some fans  have been making attempts to boycott her show.
