Carol, who is an ambassador for the Cleft Lip and Palate Association, took to the micro-blogging and addressed the Hot Topics segment.
In view of her 421,000 followers, she wrote: “As Ambassador for Cleft Lip and Palate Association @CLAPACOMMUNITY I really am disgusted by this @wendywilliams… Mimicking a cleft lip, and making a joke about it, is disgraceful. Have you any idea the pain and operations a child with cleft must go through as they grow? Please RT.”
The former Countdown legend thanked a Twitter user for “bringing it to her attention” after spotting their tweet hitting out at the American talk show host.
The person in question wrote: “For a solid 10 seconds she used her finger to mimic a cleft lip while the audience laughed. Imagine how my 5 year old would take it if he saw it? @WendyWilliams. I only speak on it because I’m personally informed and educated on the topic. #bebetter [sic].”
