Wendy Williams faced some serious backlash from the gospel community after shading the legendary Gospel group The Clark Sisters. Wendy congratulated Snoop Dogg for his #1 gospel record, while dissing the Clark sisters. “If I were the Clark Sisters, would I be mad that Snoop got to number one? ”The Clark Sisters, they’ve been doing gospel forever, have they gotten a number one? Oh well, step up your game.” It didn’t take long for the gospel community to get wind of Wendy’s comments and everyone from Fred Hammond, Tasha Cobbs, Kierra Sheard, Kirk Franklin, and Michelle Williams took to social media to defend the legendary sisters.
Wow, so @WendyWilliams dissed the Clark Sisters and clearly didn’t realize how legendary they truly are. 🤦🏾♂️🤦🏾♂️🤦🏾♂️🤦🏾♂️ Or how many #1 hits they actually DO have. Lord, she needed to do a little more research before speaking on them smh pic.twitter.com/tzlHxksoBD— DaLaun Dillard (@DDillardTV) April 18, 2018
@wendyshow These women have done more than number 1 on the charts. Their lives have matched what they sing about. Somehow they’ve managed to sing about #Jesus in one of the smallest, but most effective genres of music, have influenced masses and influenced those who influence the masses. In addition, they’ve managed to take their message to some of the world’s most biggest platforms and their message still translates through generations. Not to mention those they’ve mentored and managed to genuinely pray and show concern for you, when YOU passed out; while the world waited for your demise. Be careful who you come for. Not everyone is worth it!! This is a different caliber of people. We pray you have peace of mind and successful rest. #receipts #facts #number1FemaleGospelGroup #theClarkSisters #Wendy #TheWendyShow

I would be nothing without the CLARK SISTERS. I’m not even in the same category. I’m just now getting to where they started. Salute.— Kirk Franklin (@kirkfranklin) April 18, 2018
