The 55-year-old talk show host joked about Hollywood therapist Amie Harwick’s death during her Hot Topics segment and even made a reference to a famous line made from Carey’s hit show, Price is Right.
William “explained” Harwick’s death after the news broke out that she was allegedly attacked by her ex-boyfriend — Williams claimed that the therapist was “not killed by Drew.”
Williams even went so far to say, “Come on down!” while motioning her head downwards as if she was watching someone fall, seemingly referencing Harwick’s tragic death from falling off a balcony.
The audience were not amused by Wendy’s jokes and were silent all through the segment, much-like the time she joked about Oscar winning Joker actor Joaquin Phoenix’s cleft lip.
Fans took to Twitter to immediately call out the talk show host once again. Fans used words like “vile” and “disgusting” to describe her humour
One person on Twitter said, “Did Wendy Williams really make a ‘come on down’ joke about a murdered woman?
“I KNOW #WendyWilliams did NOT just make a ‘come down’ joke about Drew Carey’s ex-fiancée … Somebody tell me I heard that wrong, please… but the audience is stone-cold quiet,” another angry user wrote.
