Once again, Wendy Williams has rubbed a celebrity the wrong way.
While discussing Naughty by Nature’s recently launched KickStarter campaign to fund their next album, Williams touched on TLC’s efforts to use the site to request donations from fans to help them create a new offering.
In Williams’ eyes, Naughty by Nature is on a different level that TLC. So much so that Naughty members Treach, Vin Rock and DJ Kay Gee should be above asking for money.
“TLC even though they’re legendary, I look at them in a different lane than I look at Naughty by Nature … there are certain people that are so legendary that you can just survive off your old music and tour for the rest of your life,” Williams said while noting that although her producer Norman donated money to TLC’s KickStarter, he never received what was promised to him.
According to Norman, he was supposed to receive a handwritten letter from Chilli and her TLC groupmate T-Boz, but only got a piece of paper with a list of song titles written on it.
TLC’s KickStarter campaign has raised $430,255 from 4,201 fans, who contributed funds to help the group put together a new album that still has not come out.
Soon after her comments were out there, speculation surfaced from many folks who thought Williams was throwing a bit of shade at TLC.
Including, Chilli, who fired back at Williams after hearing about what she said from a fan on Twitter. The way Chilli sees it, Williams wouldn’t talk so bold if she were face to face with her and T-Boz. Scroll below to see Chilli’s Twitter response:
