There are some things you just don’t do — dissing Beyonce is one of them.
Seconds after declaring herself a fan of the singer, talk show host Wendy Williams went on to diss the singer, effectively calling her dumb. While talking about Beyoncé’s upcoming self-directed HBO documentary about her life, Williams slammed Bey:
“I am a Beyonce fan. I’m gonna watch her upcoming documentary because fortunately one of the TVs in our kitchen has closed captioning so I’ll be able to understand what she says. You know Beyonce can’t talk. She sounds like she has a fifth grade education.”
The studio audience booed in response to Williams and she got a little defensive:
“Excuse me, I just said I was a fan. But we have to call a spade a spade.”
It’s not the first time Beyonce’s communication skills have come under attack. In April, her grasp of grammar was questioned by critics who got hold of the letter she wrote to first lady Michelle Obama.
Grammar is one thing, but we don’t have any idea what Williams is talking about since Beyonce is actually very well-spoken. Perhaps Williams should look into getting a hearing exam.
