The brother of Amie Harwick — the allegedly murdered sex therapist once engaged to “The Price Is Right” host Drew Carey — demanded Wednesday that Wendy Williams apologize for making a joke about his sister’s fatal balcony plunge.
Chris Harwick slammed the 54-year-old talk show star for an on-air comment in which she quipped “Come on down!” while gesturing as if she were watching a person fall from a building, according to Fox News.
“Domestic violence is something no one should be joking about,” Harwick told the outlet in his first statement since his sister’s tragic death on Feb. 15
“This is a difficult time for my family and for Wendy Williams to make light of this tragedy is very upsetting to us and extremely distasteful,” he said. “My sister worked tirelessly for domestic violence victims and women’s rights. Wendy Williams should apologize publicly to my family for her comment.”
Williams came under fire Monday after she brought up 38-year-old Amie Harwick’s fatal fall from her third-floor balcony — which police later ruled a homicide.
“She was killed, not by Drew [Carey], but by her ex,” Williams told her audience before using the “Price is Right” catchphrase and making the off-color quip.
Amie Harwick suffered blunt force injuries to her head and torso, and her death was later ruled a homicide. Her ex-boyfriend Gareth Pursehouse, 41, of Playa Del Ray, Calif., was charged with murder.
