Amie Harwick’s brother slams Wendy Williams after she makes crude ‘come on down’ joke after the ex-girlfriend of Price Is Right host Drew Carey fell to her death
The brother of Amie Harwick has called on Wendy Williams to make a public apology after she made an ‘extremely distasteful’ joke in reference to the sex therapist’s death.
Chris Harwick’s sister died after she fell off the balcony of her Los Angeles, California home on Saturday and her ex-boyfriend Gareth Pursehouse has been charged with murder.
While announcing the tragic news about Harwick – the ex-fiancee of former Price Is Right host Drew Carey – The Wendy Williams Show host said Monday: ‘She was killed… not by Drew, but by the ex… come on down.’
Referring to the show’s well-known catchphrase ‘come on down’, Williams, 55, looked towards the ground as if watching something fall, drawing gasps of shock from her studio audience.
Chris told Fox News: ‘Domestic violence is something no one should be joking about.’
‘This is a difficult time for my family and for Wendy Williams to make light of this tragedy is very upsetting to us and extremely distasteful,’ Chris continued.
‘My sister worked tirelessly for domestic violence victims and women’s rights. Wendy Williams should apologize publicly to my family for her comment.’
The Pennsylvania woman is survived by her parents Penny and Tom Harwick.
Her funeral is scheduled to take place in home state next Thursday.
