Janet Hubert calls Wendy Williams a ‘jiggaboo’

Janet Hubert & Wendy Williams

Janet Hubert has never been shy about her beef with Wendy Williams and that she thinks the gossip queen is a so-called “virus” among black women. But in a recent interview with thegrio.com, Hubert expounded upon her issues with black women in TV and called Williams and other women “jiggaboos” and “mammies.”

While chatting with thegriot.com, Hubert discussed her unique health issues that have kept her from working (intense spasms, debilitating episodes of vertigo and a ‘strange chattering’ of her jaw, to name a few) and her struggle with being branded a villain in the industry.

According to Hubert, she’s been mislabeled and misunderstood, but when she was asked to give her opinion about black women in entertainment, she claimed that many of them are embarrassing and play into stereotypes about black women. Hubert also took specific aim at Williams and “The Talk” host Sheryl Underwood for being prime examples of those stereotypical women.

“We’re not even there. I see every network’s got some big fat, sort-of slightly chunky black girl. We’ve got Wendy out there who’s wearing giant ta-tas…and we’ve got Sheryl Underwood who’s sitting on the toilet on the set. We’ve got buffoons, we’ve got coons, we’ve got jiggaboos — we’ve got the new mammy. And I’m disgusted. I think the viewers are disgusted too. I think we definitely need some representation of who we are. There’s no one who represents me that I see — and it’s disheartening,” she said.

Well that’s a pretty harsh critique, but it’s not the first time that such a statement has been made about black entertainers, especially Williams. Check out some of her other major critics below. – nicholas robinson

    Janet,

    While I do agree we could use more good role models…. we must stand firm on our ground to lead by example. We are fighting a losing battle if we think the answer or solution will come from the mainstream. I will say that change is the only real constant so hang in there ! Though it may appear subtle, good and real change is coming.

    Be on the look out for my new audio book “Win anyway ”

    Best regards,

    Paytc

  • Synn

    I love her too…but criticizing other black women for their grind is not going to help hers get better…

    • Anthony

      But what good does it do if your grind has to come at the expense of someone else??? Cant try to tear down other people to make yourself feel better. All of these people are just responding to Wendy Williams and the hate she spews daily. No surprise she’s on Fox…a station known to hate black people at the executive level. They are simply using Wendy to get their agenda across.

      • The Truth

        So, I guess you feel the same way about BET as you do FOX because they air her new shows at midnight!

        • Anthony

          I’m not contributing to her success….what are you talking about????? You’re assuming I watch her show!!! I own 2 businesses..don’t have time to watch no haters or coons. And screw BET. Hadn’t watched that ratchet buffoon station in years. I don’t watch Wendy…you don’t have to watch her show to find out about her latest remarks of hate towards her own kind. Look on any news reel or blog and you can stumble across her hate towards someone. So no…..don’t have time to watch the ratchetness and bullsh-t. I assume you do…..all supporter’s of her always reveal themselves by talking crap and taking up for her. But go ahead..waste your time..lose brain cells watching this hater. But be aware…the dollar is crashing, you’re government is under control of the elite, evil corporations. They wanna send you or you’re kids to war..for profit under the lie of fighting terrorism. The banks are planning and manipulating the next market crash…rather it be housing or stock market. This is what I spend my time analyzing and profiting from….NOT WATCHING THIS BITCH WENDY!!!!

          • The Truth

            Well, I assumed anyone with any credibility, who would take the time to make the comments you have made about her show . . . has actually watched her show!!!!!!! You certainly are not in any position to comment on something you say she does “everyday” if you don’t watch her show . . . everyday. That’s what I’m talking about!!!!!!!!!!!! And, if you go through the trouble of reading news reels or blogs about what she’s said. . . you might as well watch her show. As someone who DOES watch her show everyday, I am telling you she doesn’t spew hate everyday, but you still don’t want to accept that and it has just made you more mad. And, guess what, you just spent a LOT of time analyzing Wendy, whether you watch her show or not and I’m sure she appreciates it. One more thing, before you start telling me about what the dollar, the government, or corporations are doing or not doing . . . stop using the word “ratchetness!!!!!”

    Wendy is the biggest sellout, most fake, self righteous, phony ,self hating black mammie,coon on TV. Sheryl Underwood is a kiss ass coon also. But Wendy takes the cake. Always hating on black women…especially if they have natural hair and darker skin. Remember she hated on Viola Davis when she walked the red carpet with her natural hair? She has lots of enemies in the black community. She even hated on method man and revealed the fact that his wife was once battling cancer when Method Man clearly stated this was an issue he wanted to keep private. But she backed off of Meth once he told her he would reveal all of the dirt on her giving dudes oral for dope when she had that bad cocaine problem. She left him alone after that. Lil Kim is starting to reveal some of the dirt on Wendy also about all of the tricking and jumping off she use to do in the industry. But yeah Wendy is a world class hater. Be up there skinning and grinning and throwing black folks under the bus to please Massa. And all this dirt is coming from a woman who is an emotional wreck and cries and breaks down in tears for any little reason. Especially when she talks of her weight issues she had coming up as a youngster and how she was picked on for being big, fat and tall. So its no surprise that a woman with inner issues, big fake tits and big fake wigs for hair tries to tear down her own people to make herself feel better. I didn’t want to think there is a media conspiracy to use black puppets to destroy the black race from within. But with Wendy Williams, homo ass judgmental Don Lemon and a few other self righteous, satanic coons on the national airwaves…IM STARTING TO BELIEVE IT’S TRUE!!!….Peace to the black.

  • Anthony

    Wendy needs god and Dr. Phil or someone. Never seen such a big ass wimp and a cry baby talk so much sh-t and talk bad about so many of her own people. Just the shallow, phoniness and hate kills me. Yet she want to act all sensitive when an issue comes up in her life…….GTFOH Wendy. And to all black women with the natural hair and body…you are beautiful. Don’t need the fake tits, hair, butt shots etc….you are all black queens!!!

  • Anthony

    Yeah Lil Kim has the fake messed up face. But we need to stop the hate and use her as an example to teach our young black women and daughters to love themselves and not follow the Lil Kim’s and Nicki Minaj’s of the world. Its hard and we are fighting an uphill battle but we got to teach our kids that these “women” are not their role models…..PARENTS ARE YOUR ROLE MODELS!!!!! F-CK THESE PHONY ASS SO CALLED ENTERTAINERS. They hate themselves!!…WHY DO YOU THINK THEY GOT ALL OF THE FAKE ENHANCEMENTS DONE????….THINK ABOUT IT! Be a role model for your kids…if not, don’t complain when they turn out like Lil Kim or Nicki Minaj. And end up on the corner selling butt or on a pole in a strip club…because lets face it…everybody cant make it as a singer or rapper…….class dismissed!!!!

    Janet Hubert? Please go sit down! You must know that by harboring this much hate for another person is more harmful to you than to the other person! I have watched every episode of Wendy Williams and she has NEVER said anything negative about you. Sure, she has a lot to say about a lot of people . . . including herself. I have watched and heard her dog herself out as much as she does other people. She’s talked about her drug addiction, etc. The only show in which your name came up was when Tatyana Ali was on there and she asked Tatyana if she remembered when you left THE FRESH PRINCE OF BEL-AIR. Tatyana said she didn’t remember much other than feeling sad and that it felt like her “real” parents were divorcing.
    Also, I watched the UNSUNG episode when you were supposedly explaining why you left the show, and even you had a hard time fully explaining why you left. The only thing you said was that you had a problem with Will Smith, but everything you said didn’t make sense and was definitely not enough for you to leave. NEWS FLASH: the show was called THE FRESH PRINCE OF BEL-AIR, not THE AUNT AND UNCLE OF THE FRESH PRINCE OF BEL-AIR. You obviously truly regret your decision to leave that show and it has drastically affected you every since. You will never have any peace over this until you stop bashing other people for your decisions!! Move on, this is quite sad!
