Wendy Williams has clapped back at T.I. after the rapper shared a recent photo of the host hitting the beach in a bikini.

T.I. took to Instagram to comment on Williams’ photos with a little shade, “I’m not gon do the obvious & fye her ass up. NOPE!!! I’m gon be respectful because regardless of her flaws she’s still a independent black business woman that’s had to fight her way through life to get where she is. JUST LIKE THE PEOPLE SHE JUDGES DAILY!!!”

He added, “Let’s see if the power of mercy moves her heart to not be so malicious & vindictive in the future when she’s speaking on the lives of other strangers when they’re going through their own PERSONAL tough times.”

Williams clapped back at T.I.’s faux mercy on her show, The Wendy Williams Show, saying, “Well, T.I., I don’t have a behind like you don’t have height, which is why you wear lifts.” 

So, how did our Slayed or Shade panelists feel about the host’s clapback? Find out in the video above.
