Talk show host gets ripped for body shaming the petite pop star

There's a new campaign on Twitter that could (but likely won't) cost Wendy Williams her day job.


On Thursday, the outspoken talk show host came under fire after giving her critique of Ariana Grande's body during a Hot Topics segment about the pop singer and her ex-boyfriend, rapper Big Sean. Williams said she had a hard time considering Grande "a woman" with her fresh face and petite frame.


"It's nice to look younger than you are, but when you look too young and then you're short ... she's only like four feet eleven ... [stutters] I don't look at her as a woman," Williams said.


As you can imagine, #Arianators went ballistic.


The hashtag #CancelWendyWilliamsShow quickly became a trending topic, even into early Friday morning. Grande's fans swarmed the social media streets in an attempt to put Williams out of work.


"Being a REAL woman has literally NOTHING to do with your height or the way you look. #CancelWendyWilliamsShow," one Twitter user wrote.


Another stated, "Isn't it sad that one grown woman feels the need to body shame and discriminate another just to stay relevant #CancelWendyWilliamsShow."


But we've been down this road before. Wendy says something offensive. The people gasp and complain about her "hatin' ass." We move on. 


Reality TV star Tami Roman, who also had an opinion on the matter, said it best: "Why is 'Cancel Wendy Williams' trending. No matter how mad U get, U know Ms. Wendy ain't going NOWHERE. Save your fingers 4 anotha topic ijs."
