*Wendy Williams is defending Iggy Azalea against the haters who have attacked her online.
On her show, Wendy spoke out about the people who bashed the 24-year-old rapper over a recent bikini pic of her (among other things). “Would guys stop with the Iggy Azalea?! How much hate do you guys have?” Williams asked her audience.
“I want you all to leave her alone. I know who the haters are: my people,” Williams said, referencing African Americans. “It seems like black people don’t want this girl to win because she’s white.”
Williams, who reminded folks that she’s “never met” Azalea, went on to claim black people hate on Iggy because African Americans are “very territorial about our rap music.”
“You take over the radio. You can be heard on hip-hop stations, Top 40 stations. My father who just turned 84 knows who Iggy Azalea is. The little goobers running around in nursery schools know who Iggy Azalea is,” she went on. “In other words, you’re a hater because she’s crossed over and she’s managed to make it. You’re a hater because she got herself what looks like a black girl’s butt and a black boyfriend, Nick Young. You need to stop that hate and get a life, haters.”
