Don't mess with the Beyhive.
Wendy Williams is about to learn that Beyoncé fans are always listening - and they always bring receipts.
The talk show host recently commented on Fergie's recent performance of the US National Anthem at the NBA All Star Game last weekend after it drew widespread criticism.
Not everyone was a fan of the former Black Eyed Peas member's sultry rendition, including Wendy herself - in fact, Williams went to say that the singer can't actually sing live at all.
"There are only a few people who can sing raw dog, and Fergie is not one," Wendy said on the latest episode of her show, "She needs auto-tune."

Her commentary didn't stop at Fergie's infamous performance, however. Much to the shock of her live audience, Williams claimed that Beyoncé also needs help when it comes to her vocals.
"Jen Lopez needs auto-tune. Janet [Jackson] needs auto-tune," she said, before adding, "Beyoncé needs auto-tune."
In conclusion, Williams said that the only female singers that can sing live are Adele, Aretha Franklin, Celine Dion, Dionne Warwick and Mariah Carey.
Soon enough, fans of the 'Formation' songstress caught wind of Wendy's bold statement and took to Twitter in defence of the star.

Meanwhile, Beyoncé was reportedly offered a staggering $10 million by a wedding planner for the trademark for the name 'Blue Ivy', the name of her six-year-old daughter.
The singer was also in attendance at the All Star game along with her mother Tina and Blue, who quickly became the star of the show.
