Fast food feud? Wendy Williams called out Kim Kardashian during her Hot Topics segment on May 22, and slammed the reality star for “bullying” Jack in the Box with her tweet posted a few days ago. The talk show host acknowledged Kim’s recent accomplishments, but wondered why she would use her celebrity platform to have the eatery resolve her “serious complaint” pronto.
“Kim Kardashian is mad at the fast food restaurant Jack in the Box,” Wendy, 54, began, garnering a big reaction from her live studio audience. “Who does she think she is?”
In case you missed it, Kim, 38, tweeted directly at the fast food chain on May 20, but didn’t clarify what her issue was because she didn’t want to put them “on blast,” so she asked them to check their corporate email inbox or reach out to her as soon as possible. “What this sounds like is you’re using your celebrity and your newfound business head for pomposity and bullying,” Wendy said.

Wendy also praised Kim’s accolades during the segment, but explained why she felt the tweet was a little out of pocket. “I mean, yes, you’re with the prison reform and you’re leading a movement that a lot of people might not have opened their eyes to. Yes, you’re in Van Jones’ law school, to get your law degree, and you know, you seem to be doing really, really good for the people with your position,” she said. “But who are you? With this right here? ‘Get at me pronto’?”
The talk show host noted how Kim likely wanted to address a more important issue than just “leaving cheese” off a burger, but said the way she worded it made her sound like “an ass.” Luckily, the issue was resolved and Kim later took to Twitter with a final message. The makeup maven posted, “Thank you @JackBox for the quick response and handling the situation!”
