Wendy Williams is being slammed for some comments she made about late TikTok star Swavy, 19, on her show Wednesday.

The social media teen, whose real name was Matima Miller, was shot dead Monday morning in a “senseless act of gun violence.”

Swavy had 2.7 million TikTok followers and over 400,000 followers on Instagram.

Williams showed a picture of the teenager on her show, speaking about him having more followers than her.

She told the audience, “I have no idea who this is. Neither does Norman. Neither does one person in this building,” weirdly asking anyone who did know him to clap.

Williams then turned to face the photo, saying: “Here he is. He’s 19 and he was murdered Monday morning.”

Swavy’s family has asked Williams for an apology.

His mom, Chanell Clark and brother, Rahkim Clark, spoke to TMZ saying she needs to say sorry for discussing Swavy in that way and for misrepresenting him.

“This isn’t just a hot topic,” Rahkim said. “We are dealing with this in reality. So for her to speak out on the event around my brother’s death and even before she reached out to our family, she didn’t send condolences. She didn’t even have, she didn’t even report the right story.”

“It’s just one thing to take public knowledge and to put it out there. But you give a false narrative, you get a false story, you painted him as a thug, as a drug dealer or someone that was out here trying to be in the streets,” he continued, “That wasn’t the type of person that he was. As a Black woman and a Black mother, you didn’t have any empathy at all for my family.”

Social media users also criticized the host for being insensitive, with many also labelling the remarks disgusting, asking her to think of Swavy’s family.

ET Canada has contacted a rep for the show for comment.
