Wendy Williams Issues Apology After "Cleft Lip" Remark Sparks Major Backlash

By

Yikes! Wendy Williams received serious backlash from fans after making comments about actor Joaquin Phoenix's upper lip. Addressing the Joker star's recent Golden Globe win, the longtime talk show host proceeded to discuss his looks. 

Going through his facial features, she then began to talk about his upper lip, which has a small scar on it that Joaquin was born with and never had surgically repaired. 

To really finalize her point about Joaquin's "cleft lip," she pulls up her own mouth (in a fish hook motion) with her finger, stating, "I find it to be very attractive." Following the 55-year-old's comments on her talk show, individuals took to social media to voice their outrage. One person even set up a Change.org petition calling for Wendy to be fired.
