Wendy Williams Does Not Think Beyonce Is Smarter Than a Fifth-Grader

On ‘The Wendy Williams Show,’ the namesake host discussed Beyonce‘s new documentary and how thankful she is for closed captioning so she can understand the words coming out of the star’s grade school-educated mouth.


Williams started her diatribe by mentioning that she’s a Beyonce fan and that she’s looking forward to the documentary. Probably things she only said to soften the blow of what she’d utter next.

“I’m gonna be watching [it],” Williams told her audience, “Because fortunately one of the TVs in our kitchen has closed captioning so I’ll be able to understand what she says.”

When the audience started to laugh, Williams chided them saying, “You know Beyonce can’t talk. Beyonce sounds like she’s got a fifth-grade education.”

This was met with a few boos, which Wendy countered with, “Excuse me, I said I’m a fan but we have to call a spade a spade.”

Don’t worry, Sasha Fierce. Wendy Williams still loves you. She just thinks you sound like an idiot.

We might point out that for being such a “big fan” of Beyonce’s, this isn’t the first time Williams has taken the star to task on her show (that likely no one would watch unless she said stupid things that get everyone’s attention).

In October of last year, she did a hard-hitting ’60 Minutes’-style expose on whether the singer was really pregnant or just faking it. Of course there hasn’t been much talk about that now that Beyonce actually has, you know, a baby. But hey, maybe Taylor Swift just stole it for her.

There’s your next big “scoop,” Wendy. You’re welcome.
