“She seems to be smart, but angry. And her anger seems to be the problem," Williams said. "A lot of times people would rather work with second best who’s not so angry than first best. I’m not familiar with her music. I’m just familiar with her anger."

After catching wind of Williams' comments, Banks fired back and said said she wants to see the television host - who revealed back in February that she has Graves' disease - "finally drop dead."

“OMG can Wendy Williams have another stroke on TV and finally drop dead? I would love to see her die on air.” she wrote on her Instagram story.
