Fans are convinced Wendy Williams let one rip while filming her popular segment “Hot Topics” last week and now they’re calling her “Windy Williams.” The talk show host was discussing Odell Beckham Jr.’s controversial butt-slapping incident on Friday, January 17th during her “Wendy Williams Show” when out of nowhere a drawn-out fart noise came across the microphone. After the alleged muffled flatulence, which can be heard at the 9-minute mark, Wendy Williams is seen pausing for a moment before continuing on with the “Hot Topics” segment.
Wearing a hot red jumpsuit that showed off major curves, Wendy Williams was giving her two-cents on the Odell Beckham issue when she slyly turned her body to the side to allegedly let out some air. Despite the brief pause, audience members didn’t seem to notice but leave it to Millenials to create a stir on social media. While “The Wendy Williams Show” host has remained quiet on the embarrassing issue, Twitter is having a field day with Fart-gate.
“Wendy Williams just let one out on live TV. ? Now don’t you act like you don’t fart nah what i’m saying ?,” one person tweeted. She’s even been crowned the nickname “Windy Williams.” Someone else posted, “WENDY FARTED!!! Sounded like a REAL Hot Topic…?? #WindyWilliams.” Another watcher went into detail about the fart. “Wendy Williams let out the wettest fart on her show yesterday sksksksjs,” they wrote. Someone else called it “juicy” and tweeted, “That shit sounded juicy af!”

Wendy Williams alleged fart-gate happened just days after a petition went around calling for her firing after she made fun of “Joker” star Joaquin Phoenix‘s facial scar. “When he shaves off his mustache he’s got a hairline fracture. He’s got one of those — what do you call it? Cleft lip, cleft palate,” she said while stretching out her lip with her finger to mock the condition. Wendy Williams has since issued an apology and threw money to multiple cleft palate organizations.
