Ariana Grande's fans are NOT happy with US talk show host Wendy Williams.

In the early hours of this morning, they trended "#CancelWendyWilliamsShow" on Twitter, but why exactly?

Well, fans were said to be in uproar after Wendy made comments about Ariana's frame and youthful looks on The Wendy Williams Show.

"She's 21, she'll forever look 12. I don't mean that in a good way," Wendy said on Thursday (13 August). "It's nice to look younger than you are but when you look too young...and then she's short, she's only like 4 feet 11 inches, like, I don't look at her as a woman."

Ariana, who is actually 22 years of age, is yet to comment.

The remarks made by Wendy were deemed to be inappropriate, with 51-year-old being accused of body shaming. Then, the Twitter storm began.

Fans have hit out at the TV host by defending Ariana and demanding that Wendy's show be taken off the air.

So far, the hashtag has been tweeted by more than 92,000 users.
