Wendy Williams has since apologized for her enraged comments targeted at gay men during the Hot Topics segment on Thursday’s episode of “The Wendy Williams Show,” after receiving plenty of backlash from shocked viewers. In the latest apology to stem from one of Wendy’s countless scandals surrounding offensive comments she’s made, the daytime talk show host took to social media to address her rant on her show, which many saw as homophobic. Wendy begins the emotional apology video, first and foremost, by saying, “I apologize.”

“I did not mean to offend my LGBTQ+ community on yesterday’s show,” she continued. After explaining that she always tries to watch the second running of her show to “critique” each episode, she notes, “I never do the show in a place of malice. I understand my platform with the community.” She begins to get choked up before saying, “I didn’t mean to hurt anybody’s feelings. I’m just having a conversation.” Wendy then vows to make a greater effort to have more awareness about these topics. “I’m not out of touch except for perhaps yesterday by saying what I said. I deeply apologize and I deeply appreciate the support that I get from the community. I will do better.”
