Wendy Williams just blamed the alleged victim.
On Monday morning’s edition of her bizarrely popular talk show, the host took it upon herself to address Nelly and the disturbing allegation that he raped a fan on board a tour bus last week.
Nelly was arrested for this reported act, which supposedly took place on Friday night in Washington after the rapper performed on stage with Florida Georgia Line.
According to a statement from local police, "at 3:48 AM, a female called 911 to report that she was sexually assaulted by a male, who is known as the rapper ‘Nelly.’
"The alleged assault was reported to occur on the tour bus that was parked at the listed location. Nelly had performed at the White River Amphitheater just hours before."
The artist was taken into custody an hour after this call was made and then released around 8 a.m.
He has vehemently denied all charges.
That’s all we know about the incident, and we’d never dare to speculate any further when it comes to something as sensitive and dangerous as rape.
But the same can’t be said for Wendy Williams.
Once again sticking her nose where it doesn’t belong, while lacking any kind of pertinent information about what transpired, Williams went off today on both Nelly… and his accuser.
"If she did not put herself in that situation, this wouldn’t have happened,” Williams actually said in front of a studio audience, jumping up on her inappropriate high horse and addressing the alleged victim as follows:
“Young lady, you’ve got to stay out of tour buses."
Wow. She really did go there.
Is this any different than telling a college student that she really should stay out of fraternities if she wants to avoid a sexual assault?
Can you imagine if it comes out that Nelly really did rape this person… and Williams is on record as saying she has any blame whatsoever for what happened?
human being talk show host then turned her attention to Nelly.
Referencing songs of the singer’s in which he sings about sex and partying and how women should take their clothes off, Williams said:
“The problem is, you can’t party the way you write about. You didn’t grow up in Rolling Stones times.”
Right. Sure. Okay.
So it’s the accuser’s fault for wanting to party on a tour bus and it’s Nelly’s fault for hosting a party on a tour bus? Got it, Wendy!
Upon his release from custody on Saturday, Nelly Tweeted the following:
"Let me say that I am beyond shocked that I have been targeted with this false allegation. I am completely innocent.
"I am confident that once the facts are looked at, it will be very clear that I am the victim of a false allegation."
Unlike Williams, we’re just gonna wait and see for those facts to come out before we offer up any sort of opinion.
Seriously, Wendy. Just shut the eff up sometimes.
