In addition to criticizing the movement, Williams claimed allegations of R. Kelly’s sexual abuse are separate from those of the movement. She also said #MeToo didn’t hold much sway within the Black community because “Black people aren’t good at protesting.”
Burke responded to Williams’ remarks on Friday morning.
“I heard what Wendy said yesterday and was disgusted by it. This is why Black women/girls are hesitant about coming forward with their #metoo,” Burke wrote on Twitter. “@WendyWilliams who blame the victim. You really think a 13 y.o. girl is to BLAME for sex w/ a 30+ y.o. man??”
