 Over 30K People Sign Petition to Get Wendy Williams Fired After Cleft Lip Comments

We recently reported on #WendyWilliams apology after she offended many when she seemingly mocked actor #JoaquinPheonix facial scar as a cleft lip. But, despite her donation and apology to the cleft community, A Change petition to “Get Wendy Williams Fired” is gaining traction following her controversial comments.

During her recent “Hot Topic” segment on January 7, Wendy said she found Joaquin “oddly attractive,” adding that she even liked the actor’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,” the 55-year-old talk show said as she pulled her lip up with her finger to mock the condition.

Following Wendy’s offensive comments, Corey Perry, started a petition that has since garnered 33,000+ signatures and counting as of Thursday afternoon (January 16).

“So this ignorant piece of work decided to mock Joaquin Phoenix and his ‘hare lip, cleft lip, palate’ on daytime television and even went as far as pulling her upper lip with her finger, she is a total disgrace,” Val wrote in the petition’s description. “Kids can be cruel and as a mother of an amazing little guy who was born with complete bilateral cleft lip, hard and soft palate, I am completely disgusted that she thinks it’s ok to ridicule and make a joke out of something that is completely out of our control.”

She went on to detail the complications her son has faced because of his condition before concluding her statement: “What I am saying is that she is a disgusting human being and in my opinion, if Don Cherry got fired for saying ‘you people’ than she should be banned from daytime TV.”
