Not Koi: Chelsea Handler Makes Strange, Racist Jokes

by at . Comments

If there's one thing we've learned in a year and a half in the celebrity news business, it is that Britney Spears and no pants go hand in hand.

If there's a second thing we have learned, it is that trying to make jokes about race can get you in a lot of trouble - right, Michael Richards?

Comedic Handler

Last night, outside of Hollywood hot spot Koi, alleged comedian Chelsea Handler tried to do the same thing and, like Kramer, failed miserably.

Handler was approached by two cameramen - one of whom was Chinese, and the other (from TMZ) was African-American. Chelsea quipped that it was "crazy that you guys all travel together, Asians and Blacks. That's amazing."

It sure is. It's also amazing that someone would say that.

Then, after a failed joke about Dog Chapman (Dog the Bounty Hunter), somehow a question about Britney Spears turned into Chelsea Handler commenting that the Chinese photographer in front of her was from "Vietcong-nam."

When it was pointed out that he was, in fact, Chinese, not Vietnamese, Chelsea Handler said, "Whatever." Yeah. That sort of "humor" never leads to trouble.

Last time i checked when has a comedian pubically said some Racist jokes on National telivision while basically the whole world was watching. At the VMA's I heard her say some crap like " snoop dogg, Surprize another angry black man?" Um why is he angry? when was the last time you seen him anrgy? If anything cool calm and collected. Shes steriotypical and highly annoying. thats as dumb as someone saying all black people can sing. Or are atheletes. Or all drink Forties. It would have been WWIII if someone like Queen latifa was on T.V. and she said something like look Its Jim Carey. Surpize another crazy white person that cant dance.. Not funny now is it..

America is full of cry babies. If race jokes personally offend you, well it must be true. Stop getting so butt hurt over everything man up and worry about yourselves. Kanye West. Huge racist but you dont really see white people crying about it and it being published on tabloids everywhere. Tax returns should come with a box of kleenex cause all you babies need them.

Does handler know how easy it would be to sue her for invasion of privacy and her stalker, intrusive comments? She can't say her staff told her to attack strangers with defamatory comments and persistent provocation. She must be lamed brained. She thinks she is erudite by vomiting wisdom others have plagiarized for centuries. She really is an unoriginal lush.

I have seen two of her episodes, and find her to be utterly mean. She is not funny at all.

Just like all the other late night talk show people, Chelsea tends to go a little too far at times to get a laugh. I'd like to see Ms. Handler and the others try to be a little more tolerant of ALL the people that make up this world. I think if you can only do low blows at people then it's not having a sense of humor but just being plain mean.
