Wendy Williams called out for making fun of Joaquin Phoenix’s appearance

Wendy Williams is under fire for making fun of actor Joaquin Phoenix’s lip.

  • Earlier this week, Williams made fun of the “Joker” star’s lip, which she apparently thinks is cleft.
  • During the segment, Williams also inserted her finger in her mouth like a hook on “The Wendy Williams Show.”
  • Phoenix has never addressed the appearance of his upper lip, so it’s not clear if he is affected by a cleft.
  • Williams apologized to the cleft community on Twitter, adding that the show would be making donations to two organizations that advocate for those with the condition.
  • Superstar Cher, meanwhile, took to Twitter saying the apology wasn’t enough — and other celebs chimed in as well.
