Chelsea Handler SLAMS Mariah Carey: How Is SHE Engaged?!

by at .

Earlier today, we reported that Mariah Carey is engaged to James Packer after only eight months of dating the Aussie billionaire.

The response on social media was overwhelmingly, as Mariah has millions of cultishly devoted fans, most of whom are aware of the difficult time the iconic singer endured following her divorce from Nick Cannon.

Of course, despite the level of obsession she inspires in her fans, Mariah remains somewhat of a divisive figure.

Her drama-filled personal life, well-known history of diva demands, and cartoonishly lavish tastes have made her an easy target for mockery over the years.

Since Chelsea Handler never passes up an opportunity to take a swing at some low-hanging fruit, she immediately stepped up to the plate with what passes for a joke in her world.

"How can people keep proposing to Mariah Carey?" Handler tweeted soon after Carey made her announcement.

Most of the responses involved some combination of T&A and money, but some Mariah diehards (or "Mari-hards," as we like to call them), came to their queen's defense:

"Because she's Mariah f--king Carey," tweeted one fan. "A living legend that's down to earth and beautiful."

"Down-to-earth" isn't the first description that comes to mind when we think of Mariah, but we're guessing Chelsea's Twitter page will be flooded with pro-Mariah tweets in the coming days.

And that's probably just what the attention-starved comic wanted.
