We all know Beyonce has a rabid group of fans, but the pop diva also has her fair share of critics who diss her for everything from her penchant for rocking bedazzled onesies, to her handwritten notes to the President and Mrs. Obama.
But today, talk show host Wendy Williams—who is known for dishing up major shade—turned her criticism toward Bey.
While discussing Beyonce’s upcoming self-directed documentary for HBO, Williams told her audience she’d be tuning in, but only with some assistance.
“I am a Beyonce fan. I’m gonna watch her upcoming documentary because fortunately one of the TVs in our kitchen has closed captioning so I’ll be able to understand what she says. You know Beyonce can’t talk. She sounds like she has a fifth grade education.”
After many in her audience let groans, Wendy quipped, “Excuse me, I just said I was a fan. But we have to call a spade a spade.”
While Beyonce hasn’t come off as the deepest, most insightful person during her interviews, I always attributed it to the fact that she was struggling to maintain an air of perfection, not her (perceived) lack of formal education.
Though some may agree with Williams’ shot at Beyonce, as the granddaughter of a very wise man who became a minister despite only having a third grade education, I understand that how smart someone is has little to do with what grade level they completed in school.
