Chelsea Handler Defends Herself Against Racism Accusations: 'I Date a Lot of Black People'

Chelsea Handler wears a stylish coat as she arrives for an interview at Good Morning America on Tuesday (March 4) in New York City.

The 39-year-old talk show host went on the show to promote her book “Uganda Be Kidding Me,” but ended up defending herself for tweets she sent out on Oscar Sunday which many thought were racist in nature. One tweet revolved around Angelina Jolie wanting to adopt Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o.

“People are mad at me all the time. If I was worried about that, then I would be spending a lot of time online. I’d rather be a little bit more productive,” Chelsea said. “I’m not racist. I date a lot of black people, so that would be a difficult thing to explain to them.”
