Chris Harwick told Fox News in a declaration Wednesday: “Domestic violence is something no one ought to be joking about.”

” This is a hard time for my household and for Wendy Williams to play down this disaster is very disturbing to us and very distasteful,” he said. “Wendy Williams should ask forgiveness publicly to my household for her comment.”

Jack Osbourne rebuked Williams in a tweet Tuesday, stating, “Hey @WendyWilliams Amie was a friend. How dare you be so disrespectful and shallow to make a ‘joke’ out of something that is not amusing in the tiniest. She was unfortunately killed, yet you in some way attempted to play down that. Pity on you. Smh.”

Harwick did not right away return an ask for remark. A representative for Williams informed NBC News Thursday afternoon that the host is not commenting at this time.

Williams’ remarks today came days after she was critcized for saying gay males ought to ” stop using our skirts and our heels” on an episode of her daytime talk program. She later apologized and promised to “do much better.”
