The family of murdered 19-year-old TikTok star Swavy have demanded an apology from TV host Wendy Williams.

Williams come under fire last week after she shaded Swavy, real name Matima Miller, on the July 7 episode of The Wendy Williams Show.

Swavy was best known for his dance videos and comedy skits on TikTok.

Swavy was shot to death by an unknown assailant in Delaware on July 5.

Wendy acknowledged that no one in her studio audience had ever heard of Swavy until after he was killed.

"I have no idea who this person is ... neither does one person in this building. He’s a TikTok star, and he’s got more followers than me: 2.5 million," Williams said on July 7.

"Swavy is now dead. Ah, all those followers. Yeah, that's really tragic, only 19 years old," she said.

Someone tweeted out a clip of the segment on Thursday night and Wendy's name trended on Twitter.com and TikTok.

Now Swavy's mom Chanell Clark and older sibling Rahkim Clark have demanded an apology from Williams.

"Wendy has always been a messy person," Rahkim said."This is not just any other story, this is not a highlight, this is not a hot topic, this is our real life."

"I'm so p**sed off, because you did him like that," Chanell said as she tried to fight back her tears. "I'm looking for an apology, I do want an apology."

Friend of the blog Wendy Williams was roasted on social media after she shaded a TikTok star who was shot to death.

Swavy, real name Matima Miller, was best known for his dance videos and comedy skits on TikTok.

Wendy correctly acknowledged that no one in her studio audience had ever heard of him.

"I have no idea who this person is ... neither does one person in this building," she said.

Someone tweeted out a clip of the segment on Thursday night and Wendy's name trended for the worst possible reason (disrespecting the dead).

The clip garnered millions of views and nearly as many angry comments. Donations poured into a GoFundMe account to raise money for Swavy's funeral expenses.

Trey Smith, who tweeted the clip, wrote: "i don't know what i thought was gonna happen here but it's so far past what i thought was gonna happen here."
