An enraged Wendy Williams used her talk show on Wednesday to publicly tear into comedian Lisa Lampanelli over a controversial tweet.
Over the weekend, while at an event in New York City, Lampanelli tweeted a picture of herself and HBO Girls star Lena Dunham. In the caption, Lisa wrote:
Me with my nigga @LenaDunham of @HBOGirls – I love this beyotch!!
Lisa’s use of the N-word struck a chord with a disgusted Williams who lashed out saying to Lisa:
“You have gone too far! I know that you have had an eye for black men, I know that you have made black people laugh for years Lisa Lampnelli, but you have taken your comfort with my people a little too far… You have crossed the line. You are not allowed to use that word!”
