Gospel Community drags Wendy Williams over ignorant Clark Sisters commentBlog
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 Wednesday (April 18) to set her straight, including clapbacks from the likes of Kirk Franklin and Yolanda Adams.
“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.
