Wendy Williams Fires Producers Following Racism Scandal

CELEBRITIES

Page Six  reports that the Wendy Williams Show  host has reportedly fired at least three employees following the backlash she received.

These people were fired just after a huge season-ending party celebrating their efforts at making the show a success.

“The crew had a big party celebrating what they considered a season well done, The next day [some of them] got calls saying they’d been let go.”

It’s believed longtime producer Jason Gabel is one of those affected, along with two unidentified senior staff members.

It is believed that the firings are a result of Wendy’s remarks on an episode of the show aired weeks ago. She faced a lot of criticism for questioning the need for Historically Black Colleges and Universities or the NAACP and speculating on whether the institutions were “offensive.”

The TV host quickly apologized for her comments, but it seems the damage was done — within a week it was rumored she lost sponsors, including a brand new deal with Chevron.
