Harwick died when she fell from a third-floor balcony during what is believed to be a domestic dispute with her boyfriend, who was arrested. She used to be “Price is Right” host Drew Carey’s fiance.
PopCulture.com explains what she said on the show:
“She was killed. Not by Drew,” Williams said, explaining that Harwick, a Los Angeles therapist, had been “pushed from a third floor balcony.”
After a pause, Williams then said, “Come on down,” the famous The Price Is Right catchphrase. She also tilted her head up and then down, seemingly referring to Harwick’s fall.

Jack Osbourne was one of many people upset by the comment, and he took to Twitter this week to blast Williams for what she said.
“Hey Wendy Williams, Amie was a friend. How dare you be so rude and shallow to make a ‘joke’ out of something that is not funny in the slightest. She was tragically murdered, yet you somehow tried to make light of that. Shame on you. Smh,” he said.
Many others on social media agreed with Osbourne.
“How can anyone have so much hate in their heart to make such an insensitive remark,” commented another. “Its sad that when Wendy was going thru her marital problems and drug issues, so many people were supportive of her and had her back. How shameful that she couldnt have paid that positive energy forward. She is arrogant and ignorant and needs to go ASAP. Such an awful person.”
“How Dare she make light of the fact that this woman was murdered,wendy has serious issues. Like is it that hard for people to understand people are in mourning? Like first Gale king digs up Kobe’s past, now wendy is cracking jokes about murder? Crazy!” another said.

“There’s a big difference between funny and cruel. Wendy has crossed the line too many times and it’s happening more frequently. Enough. Compassion goes a long way, try it,” a third commented.
“I think her time for retirement has come. I’ve tried watching her show, she’s no better than Maury Povich…which is another show that has had its time. How dare she mock someone who was killed,” another noted.
“I can’t believe that someone with an audience could be so blatantly cold and insensitive to a tragedy like this. I do not get it. Shame on her is right,” a user wrote.
