Wendy Williams Suggests Terrence Howard Should Be Fired From Empire Over Abuse Allegations, Bizarre Behavior: Read His Reaction!

Another feud for Lucious Lyon. Wendy Williams suggested during her daytime talk show on Thursday, Oct. 1, that Terrence Howard should be fired from his Fox hit Empire for his real-life abuse allegations and bizarre behavior.

"Terrence Howard, your personal life has taken over to where if by chance they took you off the show I would be happier than mad," Williams, 51, said during her Empire recap segment. "I feel like between him allegedly being abusive to women in his personal life, him giving an 18-page nutty interview to Rolling Stone magazine where he talked about all kinds of nuttiness — it’s usurped his entire situation at Empire and the show could do without Terrence Howard."

She added: "I’m sorry. It's the way I feel."

As previously reported, Howard's Rolling Stone interview was chock-full of crazy quotes. He claimed to have helped Robert Downey Jr. get the role of Iron Man, said everyone has "different faces that want to come out," and claimed that he created a new number theory called Terryology. In the revealing article, he also explained his past tumultuous relationships.

Like Howard's RS quotes, Williams' comments also went viral. So much so, that the outspoken talk show hosts opinions eventually got back to Howard, 46, himself.

"I have been a fan of Wendy for years. Shame on anyone who speaks without knowing the truth," he tweeted on Saturday. "What she did was irresponsible and hurtful!"
