Wendy Williams Slams ‘The Masked Singer’ After Music Legend Chaka Khan Gets Booted

*In just the third episode of Season 3 of “The Masked Singer,” music icon Chaka Khan was revealed inside the Miss Monster costume after she was eliminated from the competition show.

Now that her mask is off, talk show queen Wendy Williams has much to say about Khan being booted from the show Wednesday night, 

“People have no taste,” said Williams of the “I’m Every Woman” singer’s dismissal, per Yahoo

Khan’s is the latest music icon who failed to win the top spot on “The Masked Singer.” Williams also addressed how both Patti LaBelle and Gladys Knight suffered the same fate

“I like The Masked Singer, but to me a show like this is beneath the legends like Gladys Knight, like Patti LaBelle,” she said.

Williams said some of her TV show staffers were “disgusted” at that Khan agreed to participate on the show.

“A couple of people were disgusted that she even performed in a one-eyed, pink Cyclops outfit,” said Williams, who defended Khan.

“Chaka is a grown woman. She signed up for the show and so she knew that the show is clownery, but in a good way,” she said.

Meanwhile, in a chat with Billboard, Chaka Khan said her appearance on the show was a victory since the judges had no idea who was under the monster mask. 

“I don’t think I got sent home; they just couldn’t guess who I was,” she said. “They didn’t know who the hell I was… They even guessed some dead people!”

She added, “Performing in that costume. That was the hardest thing to do,” she insisted. “And being incognito backstage.”

Chaka also made clear that she’ll “never do anything like that again.”
