Wendy Williams came in the spicy (and inaccurate) sports takes this morning.

Wendy Williams defends Drake, says a bunch of dumb stuff in the process

Just when you thought it was safe to listen to "God's Plan" without getting red in the face.

Today marks the second day of Drakegate, and now TV host Wendy Williams has gotten involved and drawn the not-undeserved wrath of Bucks Twitter.

During today's taping of "The Wendy Williams Show," the popular host got to chatting with her audience about Drake's controversial courtside behavior cheering on the Raptors – and then some – during Game 4 in Toronto.

The whole thing starts fairly innocuous, with Williams getting some laughs from the rapper's overly excited sideline fangasms. It's not in the below clip, but she says she likes Drake and that attempting to distract or gain an edge over your opponent at home is fine. And that's a totally valid – and frankly, not wrong – take on the situation!

But then she set Milwaukee and the Bucks in her sights, and things went sideways.

OK, fine, Milwaukee may not have the star-studded sidelines of Los Angeles, New York or even Toronto. (Though Gucci Mane was representing the good guys at Game 3 – in enemy territory at that!)

But "Congratulations on the newness of your team"? The Milwaukee Bucks have existed since 1968 – unlike the Raptors, who as a franchise is barely old enough to legally drink.

The Bucks have won a championship – as opposed to the Raptors, who've never won an NBA Finals, much less even made it that far in the playoffs. But other than that, right on the money, Wendy. I get that you don't host "First Take" and that in-depth sports talk is likely rare on the show – but that's why god invented Google.

Anyways, The Great Kiki Conflict has gone on long enough. Here's to the Bucks shutting up Drake and the Raptors in six, beginning tonight at Fiserv Forum.
