Talk about the pot calling the kettle black.
Chelsea Handler is well-known for offending countless people through her outrageously inappropriate comments, but now the late night TV host is the one fuming.
She believes that The New York Times is sexist for its use of brackets to highlight that she was the only woman hosting a show on late night television.
Let’s not forget that this is the same person who took an Angelina-Jolie-inspired abusive rant at a stand-up show in Newark, New Jersey in December 2010, saying of the actress/humanitarian:
- 'She's a homewrecker, she is,'
- 'She can rescue as many babies from as many countries as she wants to,'
- 'I don't f***ing believe you. She gives interviews, "I don't have a lot of female friends." Because you're a f***ing c***,’
- ‘You're a f***ing b****!'
This is the same Chelsea Handler, who as a guest tweeter for the Huffington Post, wrote several inexcusably racist remarks during the 86th Academy Awards. Now she has the audacity to call The New York Times ‘sexist’.
This is the same Chelsea Handler who mocked the brilliant Lupita Nyong'o's award for Best Supporting Actress by joking about Angelina Jolie adopting her, in reference to her skin tone and origins.
The tweet was: "#AngelinaJolie just filed adoption papers #lupitanyongo #Oscars."
And the drama isn’t over yet.
Chelsea has made a public spectacle about The New York Times piece which used brackets to mention the television hostess as opposed to the other male hosts who were not.
If you’re struggling to understand what this means, check out a screenshot of what ignited her fury.
An excerpt from the New York Times piece
The hostess took to a Huffington Post blog to convey her grief and bewilderment at the distinction: “What bothered me was that when I was listed in a paragraph with the late-night hosts, I was the only name put in parentheses.
I am no parenthesis authority, but grammatically speaking, I felt like the parenthesis aimed to give Chelsea a degree of importance and highlight, if not applaud, that she is of the few females in a male dominated category.
As much as we laud her animated persona and frankness, we are not amused by drama-queen antics. And that’s exactly what Chelsea Handler has been up to lately. Go park your drama elsewhere, Chelsea.
