Desus as the one who made the comment initially defended the joke but then apologized for bringing Envy's wife into his commentary but that didn't stop the DJ from digging into them for the first 4 minutes of the interview. If you remember DJ Envy and his wife Gia appeared on the daytime talk show "The Real" to talk about their relationship, podcast amongst other things. While the two laughed it off, Envy wasn't finding anything amusing. "They made fun of it, which was fine, but when they insinuated my wife was with me for the checks, that's when it got to me".
Fast-forward to today's show, where Envy called out the comedians for the joke, saying it was "disrespectful" and his wife and kids were completely off limits. "I wanted it to be known that this was serious". Unsurprisingly, fans had a lot to say about the drama, majority wondering why Envy walked off his own show, particularly after receiving an apology.
