If it’s one thing Eboni K. Williams doesn’t tolerate is disrespect. The Real Housewives of New York City star made her debut on the show’s 13th season as the series’ first Black full-time cast member.
She schooled her co-stars on all things culture and refused to be shot down with microaggressions along the way. Williams proved that she’s very much on-brand even when the cameras are off when she stormed a comic’s set after a comment he made.
Eboni K. Williams storms set of comedy live show
Williams jumped on stage in the middle of Chanel Omari’s All-Star Comedy Show presented by the Chanel in the City podcast in New York. She issue with comedian Sam Bloomstone after he referred to her table as the “JCPenney collection.”
After some banter between him and Williams, the former public defender got out of her seat, walked to the stage, and grabbed the mic from Bloomstone. “I put my life savings that whatever you are going to say is nothing funny,” he told her.
But Williams wasn’t having it. “It’s not about being funny, b-tch. What it’s about is you respecting a motherf–king Black queen,” Williams snapped back. “What we don’t do is JCPenney b-tch, OK? A b-tch like me, you gotta respect, bro — on your worst day.”
Williams then slapped Bloomstone on his butt and told him that she was actually wearing Italian designers. “I’m sure a bunch of Italians have been inside, don’t worry,” he told her in response.
Though some may have felt Williams was upset, Page Six reports otherwise. “All the Housewives, especially Eboni, had a great time. They love Sam and think he’s hilarious,” a source told the publication.
Still, some Twitter users critiqued Williams and felt it was inappropriate to do this at a comedy show. Take a look at the video below and be the judge for yourself:
Though Williams has deleted many tweets defending herself, one of them is still up and she contends that it was truly all for fun.
It was a fun night ya’ll 😂😂 Relax…the comedian joined us all for dinner and more drinks later. And yes, I was drinking before I took the mic. Sorry I’m not perfect and had a little fun 🤦🏾♀️🤷🏾♀️
