T.I. Comes To Wendy Williams' Defense After The Internet Drags Her Barbados Bikini Photos

Wendy Williams had EVERYONE talking this weekend after she was photographed in a bikini during her trip to Barbados with her longtime husband Kevin Hunter.

People on social media jumped at the opportunity to criticize the 53-year-old talk show host's figure, as she's never shied away from doing the same to other public figures — and some of their insults were pretty brutal.

"Wtf is that? Thats a creature, and there is no possible way that thing is a female," one person wrote on Instagram. Other commenters compared her to the Grinch, the Crypt Keeper, "a crackhead who just took a bath," and even "a wet cigarette wit (breasts)."

T.I., however, is taking a completely different approach.

Even though Williams has used TIP's high-profile divorce from Tameka "Tiny" Harris as fodder for her show before, the 36-year-old rapper refused to jump on the bandwagon and bash her looks just for kicks. Here's his explanation:

"Ok now as much sh*t as this sister talk about people... (Myself included) I know what y'all expect," T.I. wrote on Instagram. "But I'm not gon do the obvious & fye her a** 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!!!" 

"But I'm gon try something new & different this time," he continued. "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. That's my approach... let's see. 🤔" Well then! 

Does T.I. have a point? Wait, better question: Do you think Williams even cares what he has to say?
