Talk show Queen Wendy Williams is once again adding a bit more controversy to her resume as she slams former Empire actor Jussie Smollett after his latest indictment. Anyone who is a fan of Williams' talk show, or of her personality in general, knows that she's a no-nonsense kind of lady and will say whatever comes across her mind without thinking about the consequences. Because honestly for Williams there are no consequences. She's just telling it like it is.

According to She Knows Williams is no stranger to being outspoken and releasing statements that may not go over that well with everyone. But that's the basis of her appeal, and why her fans can't get enough of her. Though sometimes she goes a bit too far. Like the time she victim-blamed singer Kesha during the height of her sexual misconduct claims.

“When the sexual abuse — alleged sexual abuse — started, why weren’t they rolling camera on it?” she asked. “I mean, it’s so easy. Like, men are so stupid that if you’re sexually abusing us it’s so easy to catch you.”


Williams also made headlines when she addressed a cover of Cosmopolitan magazine featuring all of the Kardashian/Jenner women except Kris' former spouse Caitlyn Jenner.

“It features all the Kardashian women. No, not Caitlyn. Caitlyn still has a member, so that is not a…” Williams said, pausing. She didn’t really finish her statement, but her intent was clear: to Williams, Caitlyn Jenner is not a woman.
As if that weren’t enough, Williams then turned to her audience, asking, “I mean until you don’t, aren’t you caught in limbo?”

Fast forward to now and, according to Pop Culture, Williams is at it once again with statements she made in regard to Jussie Smollett's recent indictment. His legal drama has been ongoing since last year when he allegedly filed a false police report claiming he'd been a victim of a hate crime. When everything unraveled it was revealed that Smollett allegedly orchestrated the whole thing. Now Williams is letting her feelings be known about his future in Hollywood after this latest indictment.


"His prison life has already started. He'll never work again. Nobody cares about him," she said. "If I saw him walking down the street I’d cross to the other side."

She didn't stop there. In a surprising twist she kicked responsibility back to the Chicago Police Department by suggesting they deal with the real issues in their city.

"Chicago should just let this go. Let it go, man. You're wasting time with the court system," Williams said, according to Yahoo Entertainment. "Jussie Smollett is alleged to have done a horrible thing, but with the gang violence and the bad school system in Chicago — you guys have bigger fish to fry."
