Tituss Burgess Continues to Shade Andy Cohen, Says His Rant Was 'Just Truth'

Tituss Burgess is not backing down on his criticism of Andy Cohen after calling him a “messy queen.”

During his appearance on Andy‘s show Watch What Happens Live!, Titus was asked a question about working with Eddie Murphy that appeared to make him uncomfortable.

“I just wonder if you got close at all because he was very problematic for the gays, at one point, when I was coming out,” Andy said. Tituss responded, “Ah, I see. He wasn’t problematic for Tituss.”

Well, Tituss made an appearance on the Wendy Williams Show on Tuesday (July 30) and she grilled him on what happened.

“I think that people misinterpret who they see on the screen sometimes and begin to have a relationship towards you based on misinformation,” Tituss told Wendy.

“Can you talk normal? What are you saying? Stop being Hollywood,” Wendy responded. “I read your rant and it started with something about queen.”

“Not a rant, just truth,” Tituss said in response.

“I will not tolerate the dismantling of anyone’s legacy, especially not my own,” he said. “Who we were speaking about has done a beautiful job being the comedic giant that he is. He has a wonderful movie coming out and I was not going to participate in talking about that.”

“I said what I said. Tituss will not be trapped,” he continued. “We have way too much work to do, we have far more important things to talk about in this nation right now, especially what is going on politically. I wasn’t going to waste time digging up something that happened a while ago. We’ve all moved past from it and we’ve all learned from it.”

At the end of the interview, Wendy and Tituss Burgess agreed to exchange phone numbers but he used the opportunity to take another dig at Andy Cohen, saying, “Done and done. Just don’t give it to you know who!”

Andy Cohen Responds After Tituss Burgess Calls Him 'Messy'

Andy Cohen is speaking out in response to his Watch What Happens Live guest Tituss Burgess calling him a “messy queen.”

Tituss, the Emmy-nominated star of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, was seemingly unhappy with some of Andy‘s questions during their interview on Sunday night (July 28). He went on a rant on Instagram the next day and told the host to “learn how to do his job.”

Andy responded on his SiriusXM radio show on Monday (July 29).

“He wasn’t having me,” Andy said. “What can I tell you? From the jump. I was trying, but no idea.”

“He ran out of there. Did not sign the guest book — he ran out,” he added. “He was like, ‘He knows I was here.’ That’s what he said to the person who asks to sign the guest book. It was something else, alright.”

Andy said that tensions seemed to rise when he brought up the musical adaptation of The Preacher’s Wife, which Tituss is working on.

“I think that was the first moment that he was pissed,” he said. “I said, ‘Oh, you wrote the musical for The Preacher’s Wife. And then I said, ‘I didn’t know that, that’s a great idea.’ And he said, ‘You talked about it two other times on this show!’ And I was like, ‘Ugh oh…’ I think that was the first point.”

“I’ve done 1300 episodes. Forgive me for forgetting you wrote the musical about The Preacher’s Wife,” Andy added. “By the way, I still think it’s a great idea. I’m still excited to talk about it. I was being supportive. But yes, I had forgotten. I’m sorry that I forgot your upcoming project. I know I shouldn’t have forgotten. I like the guy. I ran into him at a bar in Harlem like, eight months ago, and we had a really nice talk. So I don’t know.”

“He made an entertaining show, I’ll tell you that,” he said. “Sometimes it’s fun to watch the show when the guest hates the host.”

Tituss Burgess Calls Andy Cohen a 'Messy Queen' After Appearing on 'WWHL'

Tituss Burgess appeared on the latest episode of Andy Cohen‘s talk show Watch What Happens Live and he’s making it clear that he’s not a fan.

The 40-year-old Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt actor seemed uncomfortable with a question that Andy asked about working with Eddie Murphy.

“Did you get to chat with him at all?” Andy asked. “I just wonder if you got close at all because he was very problematic for the gays, at one point, when I was coming out.”

“Ah, I see. He wasn’t problematic for Tituss,” the actor replied. “We had a wonderful time. We talked about Dreamgirls — he should have won the Oscar, I believe. So, he was great. Any troubles he had with gay people, I guess are gone because he loved me.”

In a comment on his Instagram page the next day, Tituss ripped Andy and called him a “messy queen” who should “learn how to do his job.”
