Wendy Wiliams fainting during a live broadcast of her talk show was no laughing matter. But do you think that stopped social media from cracking jokes on her and turning the incident into a meme?

If you did, you’re obviously new to the internet because those of us who have been here for a while know that social media lacks this certain thing called “chill,” and they’re not afraid to show it.

Take a look at the footage showing Wendy Williams collapsing below:


Though Wendy has since updated fans and let everyone know that she’s A-OK, there’s been a lot of speculation about what’s going on with her. Did she have a stroke? Was the whole “fainting on live TV” thing staged? Is she stressed out over those rumors about her husband cheating on her and supposedly living a double life?

We don’t know for sure (FYI: Wendy says she “overheated” in her costume). But one thing we do know is that absolutely no one is safe when it comes to jokes on the internet. Wendy Williams passing out on live television quickly became an internet meme.

And no matter how bad we feel about folks cracking jokes at the expense of someone who could potentially have health issues, we can’t help but laugh at the well-timed memes and reactions being shared all over the web.

Some people (especially those who aren’t too fond of “Wendell” and her antics) just had fun with it:

And, honestly, her ultimately being OK made the situation a little easier to laugh at (or at least you didn’t feel so bad):

And here are just some of the memes:

And on top of all of that, now the internet is trying to make the “Wendy Williams Challenge” a thing:

All jokes aside, we hope everything’s OK with Wendy Williams. But at the same time, these social media reactions are HEE-LARIOUS.
