Wendy Williams does't shy away from much at all.

The boisterous host of The Wendy Williams Show spoke recently about of Jennifer Lawrence's photo leaks on her show.

She didn't have any pity for the Hunger Games star at all, unlike most people.

Finally breaking her silence to Vanity Fair, Jennifer Lawrence said that those who looked at the photos meant only for ex-boyfriend Nicholas Hoult were "perpetuating a sexual offense" and "should cower with shame".

Then she added, "At the same time, I'm thinking, I didn't tell you that you could look at my naked body. It's my body, and it should be my choice, and the fact that it is not my choice is absolutely disgusting."

However, Wendy Williams didn't see it the same way.

Williams said of Jennifer Lawrence's predicament, "Um, it's not your choice, it's in the Cloud and I've looked several times. So I guess I'm disgusting for looking?"

Wendy Williams then put the question to her audience, "Clap if you've looked at Jennifer Lawrence's hacking pictures."

There were a few brave clappers, but then she added, "Clap if you're lying because you really did look."

She then turned the blame to Jennifer Lawrence, herself, saying, "Jennifer Lawrence, you wanna know what? Don't sweat this, young lady. I mean, you're the one who took the pictures."

Jennifer Lawrence has a pretty solid argument against the you're-the-one-who-took-them argument.

“Just because I’m a public figure, just because I’m an actress, does not mean that I asked for this,” she says.

She continued, “It does not mean that it comes with the territory. It’s my body, and it should be my choice, and the fact that it is not my choice is absolutely disgusting. I can’t believe that we even live in that kind of world. ”

I think, I hope, that is the sentiment of most people concerning the whole mess.

What do you think? Do you lean more toward Wendy Williams' point of view on the photo leak scandal or more toward Jennifer Lawrence's?
