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.”

Chelsea looks like a colorless ape. Why doesn’t she ever talk about her German grandfather whom she makes excuses for his role in the SS. Not to mention the way she treats the little Mexican man on her show. To her he is not even a human being but a mascot to make fun of.

It’s well documented that she’s close friends with Aniston and hates Angie and when given the chance she will diss Angie as much as possible. If Aniston has gone on with her life why can’t this hateful idiotn woman? CAN’T STAND HER!!

# 3

look at her neck, it’s like a 50 year old’s neck.

‘I have a lot of black friends’, says the racist old b-tch in a desperate attempt to defend herself.

“I’m not racist. I date a lot of black people” That’s the same sh*t people use when they caught using the word fagg*t. “I’m not a homophobe. My pharmacist is gay.

Lying Witch!! @ 03/04/2014 at 1:46 pm

Yes, she is a lying, hateful, racist pig! She slept her way to the top and in order to try and stay there she has to tell vile racist jokes publically known adults and children to keep her position. She think she’s giving shock comedy but she’s not, she is just disgusting. She claims she’s a girl’s girl but goes around tearing down another woman publically for what Handler did to get where she is on E channel. Anyone who is a fan or friends of this trash should be ashamed!

Also, the ” I date black people” or “I have black friends” shtick is what all racist use when they get their ass caught with their foot in their mouth! GMA should be ashamed giving that lipstick wearing pig a platform to lie on.

You can date a black guy and still be a racist. Dumb *****.

when will people learn that saying stuff like that DOES NOT HELP YOUR CASE!! there’s nothing more awful than seeing someone say “I don’t hate xxxxx, I have lots of xxxx friends”, it looks ignorant

The word “racist” has lost all meaning, thanks to the leftists who brand ANYONE who says anything negative about President Obama and his policies as a racist. Although, I’m confused about Chelsea because I thought anyone who voted for Democrats was allowed to be as racist and homophobic as they wanted to, as long as they kept giving money to the party.

So transparent… Handler always taking potshots at Angelina and her kids and now, blacks!
The upside is that it’ll turn people against her and her bestie, Aniston.
Not a very smart strategy, ladies!

she just phones in her show now, she may as well be Lyp Synching. she’s clueless about pop culture, gets things wrong all the time. A lyric video is not the finished vid, Chelsey dear ;). And don’t get me started on her Oscar tweets, bashing an institution and the town that pays you is gross, like the way she’s now more concerned about kissing a%%, going to the right events and getting her hair done, you’re not jen aniston and you never will be.

There is NO WAY she is 39, she has shaved off YEARS when telling her age. She looks at least 50 with that wrinkly chest. Heck I know late 40s gals who don’t even have that happening yet!! Seems karma for her nasty personality is that horribly overly-injected face gone bad!!!

Poor Aniston Chelsea Handlers rant on Angelina Jolie just shows that Aniston is still carrying a torch for her ex husband Brad Pitt and she probably complained to Chelsea about it. Notice the rants is never against Brad Pitt always against Angie. I can imagine how Aniston must have felt when her ex Brad Pitt was accepting major awards at one of the world’s biggest award program and social event seeing Angelina Jolie kissing and hanging on to his arms in front of millions of viewers, she must have been green with envy, thinking it should have been me! Read some place she was not invited to the Oscars this year, i did not know you had to be invited i thought anyone could just show up. Handler is Aniston’s mouth piece, that’s all.

This woman’s face is a mess and her hair is awful. Suits her though. Now she’s an old vile cvnt inside and out. Good for you Chelsea.

@floretta50:
I tend to agree. If Aniston really wanted Handler to shut up about Jolie then she would have already done so.

@Fercat:

I really don’t think Handler cares what Aniston thinks. If Handler was truly Aniston’s friend, she wouldn’t continue with her stupidity. Adding fuel to a dying fire makes no sense, but then again, we speaking about Handler. She’s a total slapper!!

I guess Ellen’s a racist for making that joke, if you don’t vote for the slave movie it’s cause you don’t like black people … That’s how stupid you people are throwing around the word racist ….no one cares just stupid liberals in the media like that loser George Stepafuffaious , or whatever his dumb Greek long a** name is Or can’t a say that, does it make me a bigot.

She has a point if you’re a racist , would you date a black person, let them touch you with their dark skin., kiss with their big a** black lips , or touch their afro textured hair , think not , would gross you out,, isn’t like she dated mixed or light skin.

She might not be racist but she’s definitely not funny and definitely an a$$hole.

When you constantly condemn someone for whatever reasons, it’s a form of racism. Her hate for Angelina Jolie is beyond ridiculous right now. Jolie just received an honorary Oscar for her humanitarianism & Chelsea still goes around calling her names. She might not be racist against “black poeple” but she is towards Angie … so yeah she’s racist in my eyes.. there are so many forms of RACISM. what an ignoramus.

What a ****! She is not funny, she is the sole proprietorship of mediocrity. White people and their white privilege. They are all subliminal racist. I am completely over #whitemedia. But, i do like how they are supporting Lupita Nyong’o even if it is for selfish, clandestine, and albeit, capitalistic reasons.

Love how the bimob celebs kiss her azz and befriend her so they wont get made fun off by her. ie Aniston, Witherspoon, Diaz, Theron… Looks like it finally backfired LOL. you are the company you keep! Props to Nick Cannon from hating her from the start because he saw right through her..
