Chelsea Handler's New Gig: Bigot?

11/25/2007 4:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Trying to joke about race can get you in a lot of trouble -- just ask Michael Richards. Last night outside of Koi, supposed comedian Chelsea Handler tried to do the same thing and, like Kramer, failed miserably.


She was approached by two cameramen -- one of whom was Chinese, the other (our guy) was African-American. Chelsea quipped that it was "crazy that you guys all travel together, Asians and Blacks. That's amazing." And they can vote now, too!

After a failed joke about Dog the Bounty Hunter, somehow a question about Britney Spears turned into Chelsea saying the Chinese photog was from "Vietcong-nam." When it was pointed out that he was, in fact, Chinese, Chelsea just said, "Whatever."

Guess she's the kind of comedian you just have to laugh at -- not with.

chelsea, I heard the comments you made on Tori Spelling who along with her family are doing very well great show..You are obviously a hater, Tori was raised on money and class and you, well, not sure, but willing to bet in a trailer park....Girl, you have no class and it really is a shame that there are people out there who are willing to waste their time on you and by the way you are NOT attractive at all..Oh! and on behalf of Kate Gosselin, I'm sure she doen't want to meet you either...

I used to like her show because I like subversive humor but I can't stand hipocrites with an agenda. All her gay jokes are with the double purpose of pointing at someone else so people wont accuse her of being gay. The fact she reminds the audience constantly is a dead giveaway. So if she is so pro gay and so fearless, why does she fear people so much when they put her in that category? Because deep down inside she does not like herself that much and needs alcohol and to point at others to get by. She's not any better than Perez Hilton her nemesis.

First Chelsea Handler screws her boss. Then she publishes books about banging dwarfs and many others. She has done women on the side, animal trainers and now 50 CENT. I think she is a 50 cent whore. And she is stepping down each time.

Chelsea is a dumb bitch!!!!! The attack on Angelina Jolie is a sad and desperate attempt to promote her gal pal Aniston's new perfume which smells like John Mayer slamming a door on her face (as stated by Joan Rivers in Fashion Police)! LOL!

Funny that some of these comments complain about racism (rightfully so, mind you), but then resort to calling her a "bitch," "stupid bitch," etc....why is racism wrong, but sexism is fine? Geez...

She is trying way too hard - she is a racist and intolerable, miserable small-minded person. She is not fully AT ALL! She bases all her "jokes" on hate of other people and nationalities. When I think about it, she actually fully embodies the very definition of "trailer trash"...

This is the most ignorant blonde dummy EVER released on air. Who pays for her existance? The effing Republicans? I mean, is she related to the triple evil butt hole Ann Coulter? No their racism isn't funny..and if we are NOT suppose to take it personally, then, she should joke more about her OWN insecurities. And no ****, I my nose is just fine and why would any one find her to be funny. It is not like it's creative or original. Any ******* can insult people. Watch your back bimbo because you may find that those who DO NOT find you to be a tickle, then, best listen out for a CLICK BANG behind the ear. Take a look at London and see how funny **** will actually be, the rate that this country is going, we will be next because of the over satuation of DUMB**** Blonde Cable. Please. Get a real job, like ********bing for the Las Vegas has-beens.

I can't stand that b**tch. She constantly emasculates men and spread*****e all around. She should cut her hair short and grow a beard, because when I hear her name, she just makes me think of some dude whose face you want to break in a bar fight.
