Hey, we'd fight over J.T., too!
During Tuesday's chat with Jesse Williams, Ellen DeGeneres brought up the Grey's Anatomy star's inspirational speech from the 2016 BET Awards. After praising the woke celeb on his powerful words, the funny lady commented on how Justin Timberlake even wrote about the remarks on Twitter.
This, of course, led to a HIGHlarious face off between the daytime TV host and the Hollywood hottie over who was closer with the Can't Stop The Feeling singer. LOLz!
Ironically, Justin was dragged pretty hard online for commenting on the incredible speech. Clearly, Jesse wasn't bothered by Timberlake's response as they seem like they're pretty close IRL.
But closer than Ellen??
Ch-ch-check out the friendship battle for yourself (above)!
Wendy Williams needs an education… and that's exactly what she's gonna give herself!
The daytime talk show host got into some major heat last week after saying some pretty ignorant remarks about Historically Black Colleges and the NAACP.
These flippant remarks rubbed most of Wendy's viewers the wrong way, with critics calling her uneducated — and even dubbing her the new Stacey Dash! That's gotta hurt!
Wendy's advertisers weren't fans of the contrarian grandstanding either, as she also reportedly lost her Chevrolet sponsorship over the controversial comments.
But it looks like Wendy is learning from her mistake, and is planning on educating herself with the help of one of her most vocal critics.
According to Love B. Scott, Williams is inviting
Wendy Williams tried to put her two cents into the controversy surrounding Jesse Williams' powerful speech at the BET Awards.
But the daytime talk show host's response was faced with controversy in itself over comments she made about historically black colleges and the NAACP!
During Wednesday's Wendy Williams Show, the 51-year-old spoke out on the Grey's Anatomy star's moving speech after receiving the Humanitarian Award for his documentary on the Black Lives Matter movement.
She told the audience:
Dr. Jackson Avery, at your service!
Luckily, the 34-year-old activist wasn't about to let trolls get the best of him over the weekend, tweeting a little shade obviously directed at the petition:
The ruler of Shondaland has spoken!
After Jesse Williams was honored with the Humanitarian Award at this year's BET Awards, the actor received mostly praise for his powerful speech on the Black Lives Matter movement and racial issues in America.
Though Williams' empowering speech was all about promoting "equal and justice in our country," some viewers (with selective hearing, we assume) found the speech to be "racist."
These critics were so offended, they created a change.org petition to fire the actor from Grey's Anatomy in hopes of "condemning his negative attitude." How diabolical!
Thankfully, Shonda Rhimes stepped in to handle this mess for us and remind the critics who's REALLY in charge of ABC's Thursday night lineup!
On Monday, the Grey's Anatomy creator responded to the petitions on Twitter, writing:
Not everyone is loving Jesse Williams' passionate speech about human rights… and we're not just talking about professional troll Stacey Dash.
Last month, the Grey's Anatomy star received a standing ovation for his empowering speech about the Black Lives Matter movement while accepting the Humanitarian Award at this year's BET Awards.
But the 34-year-old's strong words rubbed some fans the wrong way, and these fans are apparently so offended by the "racist" speech, they want the human rights activist to be fired from the ABC medical drama!
That's right! Critics created a petition on change.org that demands Williams be fired from Grey's to be punished for his "hate speech." Wow.
The petition, which has 5,908 signatures as of this writing, reads:
