In the media industry, there’s a level of commitment and moral decorum required to be an impact to the community. Along the way a media professional has to know when something will be disrespectful, helpful or even insignificant. Well Wendy Williams is learning that very lesson right now after the comments she made on her show during her “hot topics” segment:
“On the other hand, I would be really offended if there was a school that was known as a historically white college. We have historically black colleges. What if there was the National Organization for White People, only? There’s the NAACP,”
She’s already gotten her tongue lashing from NewsOne’s Roland Martin and now she’s lost Chevrolet, a major sponsor to her show. The entire world knows racism sucks and while most may get what she was trying to say, unfortunately she did not choose her words carefully and her popular rant segment cost her big time. Yup..she stepped out on that ledge all by her lonesome!!
EarHustle411 will stay tuned to this situation because Chevrolet just may not be the only sponsor to exit stage left.
