Wendy Williams to Donate to Cleft Lip Charity After Mocking Joaquin Phoenix

January 16, 2020

Wendy Williams is in apology mode after mocking "Joker" star Joaquin Phoenix's lip scar. The attack on the actor came as he's on a roll this awards season, winning multiple awards for his performance. Williams said on her show that she found Phoenix oddly attractive, but her compliment went sour when she used her finger to lift up her lip while talking to her audience. Social media erupted. Cher even tweeted, "You should be fired."
