Safe to say Wendy Williams has landed herself in hot water with a number of Ariana Grande's fans. 

The 51-year-old talk show host found herself on the receiving end of rampant criticism after she made a few controversial comments about Ariana Grande and seemingly body-shamed the 22-year-old pop star on The Wendy Williams Show

"She's 21. She'll forever look 12," Williams said as the audience laughed. "And I don't mean that in a good way. It's nice to look younger than you are, but when you look too young and then you're short—she's only like 4'11". I don't look at her as, like, a woman." 

Her comments prompted the hashtag #CancelWendyWilliams to trend on Twitter on Thursday evening as fans of Grande banned together to try and get the show taken off air.

Unsurprisingly, many of the tweets were very passionate. 

Others called out Williams for her apparent hypocrisy. 

There were also those who claimed Williams was jealous. 

And there were a handful of Williams' supporters on the social media site, Grande's fans certainly didn't hold back, even using a number of GIFs to really hammer home their point. 

Grande, meanwhile, as yet to comment on the incident. 

Then again, it seems like her fans are doing all the talking she needs.
