Wendy Williams Got It All Wrong With Maluma So Twitter Came Through With Some Education

We all know that daytime talk show host Wendy Williams has plenty of drama going on in her own life. However, that didn’t stop her from letting it all out on her review of the Billboard Music Awards. Particularly, Williams tried to come for Maluma.

In her Hot Topics segment, Wendy came for both Madonna and Maluma who performed the single “Medellin” at the awards show.

First, she went for Madonna.

Like, why even say something like that? Madonna might not be the youngest artist out there right now but she is doing her thing and elevating Latin music artist to mainstream audiences.

Then she got it all wrong with Maluma.

After saying Madonna “moved like an old lady”, Wendy tried putting Maluma – who she thought was Madonna’s boyfriend – on blast. Williams was saying that he didn’t deliver during his performance with the Medellin singer. She was even confused because she thought Madonna’s boyfriend was supposed to be hot.

Wait up, Wendy. You did not.

Maluma is a hit-making singer in his own right and we are all luck to have him in our lives. Clearly, you haven’t taken any time to listen to the 25-year-old’s hit songs like “Corazón” and it shows.

Maluma is pure fire.

A few seconds later, Wendy switched gears. She puts a photo of the real-life sex god up on the screen and talks about how gorgeous he is before saying she thought he was Mariah Carey’s boyfriend.

Maluma + Madonna + Mariah? What the actual f*ck?

All of this happens before one of her cameramen has to step in to tell her who this beautiful man really is. It’s Maluma, baby. Pretty Boy, Dirty Boy. The same guy from the Madonna performance.

You’re welcome, Wendy. #smh

For someone who loves to stir the pot and act like a know it all, you really dropped the ball here. Maluma is someone we all know and love. If you don’t know him, you better learn. He is going to be around for a long time.

Perez Hilton is not having it.

Honestly, neither are we. She needs to make sure she and her team do some research before they try dragging people on air. Ignorance isn’t a cute look on you. This blatant disregard of one of reggaeton’s greatest icons is an absolute slap in the face.

If this wasn’t enough, for his first Met Gala outing, Maluma got no love on the pink carpet.

It was his first time there and he was absolutely working a stunning look. People rightfully pointed out that Maluma came to slay. The theme for the event was “Camp” and Maluma definitely slayed the challenge, showing up in a sparkly patterned Moschino suit.

Yet the getup didn’t seem to capture too many photographers attention.

As this actual footage of Maluma’s arrival clearly shows. Which left people, including us, completely puzzled. Like, how can you not pay attention to the Colombian singer that has captivated the hearts of millions? Unacceptable.

We the people are very pissed and heartbroken.

He came to slay and slay he did. It is time for everyone to take a moment and recognize Maluma’s Met Gala look for what it is, gold.

It was a traumatic experience that fans are being forced to relive over and over because of social media.

Who else is crying over it? The disrespect just seeps through the screen. Maluma deserves better. He is someone that needs to be respected and admired for his beauty and fashion choices.

ICYMI, here is the video of the beautiful and regal Maluma being ignored at the Met Gala.

This is a tragedy. Every photographer should be fired for not following through. He is a prince and deserves all of the spotlight we can give him.

A lot of people feel Maluma got cheated of his spotlight simply because gringos don’t know one of Latin America’s biggest stars.

Like there were literally dozens of men that completely failed the challenge. They didn’t channel the event’s theme of “Camp” in any way and instead showed up in basic black. But their photos are all over the place.

He’s got style, he’s got beauty, and he’s got talent. What more does society want from him?

Clearvoice test for 2.17 – Royal Baby Already Being Called A Chimp Proving White People Still Can’t Stand Black Power And Have Inferior Jokes

n 2015, Emmy award-winning host Rodner Figueroa was rightfully dumped from Univision after calling Michelle Obama a monkey during “El Gordo Y La Flaca.” During a segment of the show, the host cracked “Michelle Obama looks like she is of the cast of ‘The Planet Of The Apes,’” as he pointed to a set of pictures of the First Lady. His words shocked and infuriated most people, but let’s be real, few POC were surprised.

Non POC have been associating Black people with monkeys for ions in an effort to denigrate them as less worthy of human than white people.

It is exactly what BBC DJ Danny Baker did and intended to do when he made a joke recently about the debut of the Black Royal Baby yesterday.

The broadcaster Danny Baker was fired by BBC Radio 5 Live yesterday after he published a racist post on Twitter yesterday.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s newborn son, Archie, was compared to a chimpanzee.

The tweet, which has since been taken down by Baker, featured an old photo of a couple holding the hands of a suited chimpanzee. The caption: “Royal baby leaves hospital.”

Fortunately, it didn’t take long for the BBC to give the host the boot and in response tweeted the most unexceptional apology for a racist attack since Rodner Figueroa issued an apology for calling Michelle Obama a monkey and griped at her in an open letter blaming her for his own firing. (“I was verbally notified that a complaint from your office led to my dismissal,” Figueroa whined at the time.

Like Figueroa, Baker also refused to take his medicine and blamed just about everyone else for having “diseased” minds and misinterpreting the tweet.

“Sorry my gag pic of the little fella in the posh outfit has whipped some up. Never occurred to me because, well, mind not diseased,” he wrote in a tweet.

Yes, mi gente, if you ever need an example of how not to make an apology/ blame everyone else for your own wrongdoings just look to a racist white person. Of course, on different levels both Baker and Figueroa’s racist comparisons stem from an even greater issue. Black Power intimidates people who are both white and weak.

But you know what? The Black Baby Prince (and FYI he might a “lord” not technically a “prince” but we’re gonna call him that Black Baby Prince because that is the respect his Black Power deserves) and Michelle Obama stay strong and Black. And like the rest of us who’ve endured similar jokes they are always, always above the peons who couldn’t tell a bad joke from a good one if it fired them from their jobs, swiped their paychecks and slapped them on the face.
