Wendy Williams is no stranger to tone-deaf, inflammatory comments ― but recently she really crossed the line. On a July 7 broadcast of her syndicated show, “The Wendy Williams Show,” the talkshow host criticized Jesse Williams for his powerful speech at the 2016 BET Awards.

TV Commentator Roland Martin took serious issue with Williams’ comments, dedicating an entire segment on his TV One show, “News One Now,” to shut down Williams critique of both the NAACP and historically black colleges and universities.
