Wendy Williams apparently had no clue that the Clark Sisters are gospel music icons. But not to worry…the entire gospel community came through on April 18 to set her straight, including clapbacks from the likes of Kirk Franklin and Yolanda Adams.

It all started that morning during Wendy’s “Hot Topics” segment, when she said that the legendary group must feel bad that Snoop Dogg’s new gospel album Snoop Dogg Presents: Bible of Love – which features the Clark Sisters – reached No. 1 on the gospel charts. Wendy basically assumed that the Clark Sisters had barely made a splash before Snoop came along.

“If I were the Clark Sisters, would I be mad that Snoop got No. 1?” Wendy asked her audience. “You know the Clark Sisters, they’ve been doing gospel forever. Have they gotten No. 1?”

“Well,” she sighed, “Step up your game.”

Social media and church folk pounced immediately, in the name of Jesus.

Franklin, Adams, Deitrick Haddon, Fred Hammond, Michelle Williams and Tasha Cobbs were among the gospel artists who defended the Clarks and called on Wendy to step up her own game when it comes to facts.

Meanwhile, each of the Clark Sisters took to their Twitter accounts with the same Christ-like response, thanking fans for all of the support and focusing attention back on what’s really important – Jesus.

However, gospel singer Kierra Sheard, the daughter of Clark sister, Karen Clark Sheard, reminded Wendy in her tweeted response: “These women have done more than number 1 on the charts. Their lives have matched what they sing about.”

She continued: “They managed to genuinely pray and show concern for you when YOU passed out, while the world waited for your demise.”

The YouTube Channel “Daytime Tea” sums it all up below (Wendy’s Clark Sisters shade begins at the :47 sec mark), followed by comedian Lexi who goes ALL the way in:

  1. Wendy wasn’t even in her lane. What does she know about gospel music, the Clark Sisters, or being a Christian? Again, that’s the devil using folks to get people riled up. The Clark Sisters’ records and awards speak for themselves without Wendy’s input. Furthermore–could her audience relate to what she was saying? I doubt if most of them know anything about gospel music or who the Clark Sisters are.

    I don’t think this article title should refer to Gospel Artists as “dragging” anyone. That is a term that invokes hostility, its unbecoming, and ugly. Gospel Artists did however defend The Clark Sisters Legacy. I watch Wendy Williams everyday and enjoy the show. She made an error, it’s not the end of the world. Why is it that we can’t wait to blast somebody when we have all used poor judgement at one point or another.

    Wendy talks out of her head. This week, Wendy said Beyoncé was the greatest performer to ever live (alive or dead). I was convince even more Wendy is a fool along with others for making that statement (Beyonce is good and I like her but she is not the greatest).

    • For some strange reason Wendy has been Brown nosing Beyonce. Ever since she made statement about her 5th grade education, Wendy has been Brown nosing. She’s like a lot if people in that she can’t stomach Ms. Carter.

    T suggested letting the Lord fight your battles. Have you ever seen the Lord come down from heaven and fight a battle. The Lord fights his battles through people, so why not consider those people making noise as a voice. I really dislike people who are always judging, which is exactly what to so called talk show host did against the Clark Sisters.

  6. Christians. Got to love it. What about holding your peace and letting the Lord fight your battles. All the so-called Christians that responded came off more like regular folk than those who truly love Jesus. Silence is golden especially if you call yourself a christian and representing Christ. The Clark Sister’s handled it well; they didn’t need help for the “Peanut Gallery”. smh

    People will never learn. I’m not a fan of Snoop’s album and won’t support it. However, there are plenty that will. Wendy Williams is a pawn and used to pit blacks folks against one another and highlight negativity. I don’t understand how people get off on watching and supporting trash. We are what we let grow inside us. Have you ever wondered why black positive shows don’t gain audiences? It’s because we like mess. We don’t get behind the shows that can make a difference and educate us. Blacks folks like Real House Wives of whomever, Keeping up with racketness, or any show that highlights the worst in our folks. It’s a shame, because now that there is a platform, it’s not being used for the good. However, it’s Wendy’s right to be messy and y’all have a right to support her.

  8. Wow Wendy really come on now sweep around your own front door before you try to sweep around theirs. Dropping the mic 🎤

      Like Niki said she should watch her man and her mouth OK! I stopped watching her last year and will never watch that trash again. I’m so busy working and I use to watch her on sets on YouTube but she had to many Reckless things to say about Tyrese Gibson that were not true as well.
