Watch: Viewers Left Amused After Wendy Williams “Farted” On TV
If you are familiar with the name Wendy Williams then you would know it is synonymous with controversy.
The television host is once again in the news after she appeared to let out a loud fart while live on-air during one of her shows.
The 55-year-old seemingly suffered an embarrassing moment while speaking about NFL star, Odell Beckham’s butt-slapping incident on the popular segment, “Hot Topics” of her show, The Wendy Williams Show.
In a video clip circulating online, Williams tried to ‘fart’ silently but failed as the sound was picked up by studio microphones.
The media personality can be seen adjusting uncomfortably in her seat after the fart was let out but continued with the show.

Viewers of her show were quick to address the mysterious blast online and many were overwhelmingly amused by the apparent gassy blunder.
