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.

First of all, I have never heard of her. Second of all, she wasnt that funny but nothing that she said was racist. Even if it was, so what. I still dislike Dog The Bounty Hunter because everytime he opens his mouth in an interview, you can tell that he is telling lies.
He is not a sincere person and certainly not a role model for anyone. He is an example of what you dont want your kids to be.

Hey Morons~! She's standing outside of a restaurant waiting for a car. A couple of losers with cameras trying to make 50-dollars from TMZ start asking her stupid questions and she gives them stupid answers. Instead of doing what other 2-bit TMZ celebs do when money grubbing whores with cameras, she stands there and is pleasant and answers the dumb questions the way mosy "comedians" would. Trying to be funny! These guys laugh at everything she says, so they didn't think it was offensive, bigotted or racist. Get a life you PC frauds who try to paint people with labels whenever they say something.

All of your jokes are racist. But I've learned if you get offended by every racist joke or comment somebody makes...you'll spend your entire life being offended.

And Lenn K...who is "they"? TMZ? Because TMZ is the one who said she was a "bigot", not the races that she joked about in the clip. Just asking.

Granted she is not very funny, but if you don't like it, don't go see her. Choices, people.

No story here, she's just being Chelsea. How could anyone be surprised she is a shock Jockette, besides they were sort of asking for it. Stop pissing off the elite.

Welcome to the world of what I call "racial McCarthyism". There's a racist under every rock......holy crap, they're everywhere! CH is funny, her humor may not appeal to everyone, but witty humor never does. The fact she is smokin' hot has little to do with it. Its an added bonus.

First, someone is not racist because they think that Black History month and BET should be taken off. We don't need them like we don't need the White History month or the WHT channel. Anyone who continues to want these things obviously is not looking for equality between the races and as long as they continue there never will be.

As for Chelsea, she was making jokes. She was not going after them saying racist remarks or performing. Remember this is America.

She also had Curry on there and was agreeing with her. She did that to point out what a moron she was. But only people that get her would see that.

#23-T2T, Of course I talking about TMZ and most liberal press that love racial situation that they can promote. Not everything said about a race is racist. Somethings are true and some are just plain funny. That why TMZ has a one year anniversity of Kramer rant. It's only to stir up racial hate and start the name calling that makes alot of posts for them. Chelsea is not a racist, some of her jokes aren't funny. It's easy to get blacks unhinged and that's how the democrats get 95% of black to vote for them by telling them that republicans are bigots, when really it's the democrats that are the real bigots!! The Demos tell the blacks to just shut and vote, well talk again when we need to in four years!!

She's not clever, she's pompous and looks like an old hooker in need of a meth fix.
