Wendy Williams Just Victim-Shamed Kesha

NO no no no no no.

Here's an idea: Instead of going on TV to blame a woman's alleged sexual abuse on the woman herself, Wendy Williams might take some time off to watch Law and Order, which science has proven to help people better understand consent and not blaming the victim.

But instead, here's what happened: During an episode that aired Monday, Williams wrote off Kesha's accusations against Dr. Luke as a ploy to exit her contract. "Unfortunately business is business, and it sounds like it's fair," Williams said of the court ruling. "If everybody complained because somebody allegedly sexually abused them and was ripping them off, then contracts would be broken all the time."

It only got worse from there. "Number two, if she and her mom are so close—Kesha's no spring chicken. I mean she's like, 30 years old or something like that? So she wasn't stupid 10 years ago and neither was her mother. When the sexual abuse—alleged sexual abuse—started, why weren't they rolling camera on it? You know, a camera up in the wig?"

Hoooo boy. This has to be seen to be believed, so start the clock at 4:21 to catch Hurricane Wendy.
