As Wendy Williams continues to treat her unspecified mental health issues amid a hospitalization reported last week, her ex-husband Kevin Hunter has come under fire for a recent social media post that some believed was aimed at the talk show host. The backlash was so swift and severe that Hunter soon disabled the comments on the Instagram post. Before the comment was locked down, however, some of the nastiest messages were saved.
Wendy Williams’ Ex Husband Back In The News
Just a week after Wendy Williams was reportedly voluntarily admitted to a New York area hospital to treat mental health issues, her ex-husband Kevin Hunter is in the news for all the wrong reasons. The Wendy Williams Show star divorced Hunter after it was revealed that he’d not only kept a mistress on the side, but had fathered a child with the other woman. Prior to their split, the two had been married for over 20 years and share one son, Kevin Jr.
On Tuesday, Hunter shared a selfie of himself wearing a black, alligator skin face mask, a pair of Louis Vuitton sunglasses, and a blue hoodie with white and red stripes on the shoulders. The photo wasn’t the problem, however. It was the seemingly pointed caption that had Williams’ fans up in arms.
Kevin Hunter’s Caption Drives Williams’ Fans Wild
“Bday vibes ALL WEEK‼️ ..so THANKFUL to the MOST HIGH GOD for ALL BLESSINGS…I tried to tell ‘EM ..HEALTH IS WEALTH ..not MONEY‼️..GOD said ‘They’ll LEARN’‼️‼️‼️HAVE A BLESSED DAY,” he captioned the photo, followed up by two prayer emojis, a bicep emoji, and two hands up emojis.
The backlash was immediate. One person wrote, “TASTELESS AS HELL.” Another warned, “Karma is sharpening her nails for you sir be careful kicking people when they’re down.” Someone else agreed, writing, “This caption is tack af! Just remember karma don’t miss no one sweetie…believe that!” Another follower called the post “petty,” adding, “He knows Wendy is sick…”
Another wished the producer a happy birthday and commented, “but don’t do that… Wendy genuinely loved you for you,” and once again warned him about his karma and told him to wish Williams the best. A separate comment got personal with Hunter and read, “Chill if it wasn’t for Wendy him, his mistress and their illegitimate child would be homeless.”
To be clear, Hunter might not have been speaking about his ex-wife, but rather just making a general statement that Williams’ fans took the wrong way. Still, the news about Williams has been public for a week now. It certainly isn’t a good look for Hunter and it’s obvious that he realized how polarizing the post was pretty quick and in a hurry. Just a day after the post was first created, its comment section has been wiped clean. Sometimes timing, and discretion, is everything.
