Lisa Lampanelli

Backlash After Comic Hurls

Racial Slur at Dayana Mendoza

4/10/2012 10:43 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Celebrity Apprentice" star Dayana Mendoza is firing back at Lisa Lampanelli ... claiming Lisa insulted an "entire Hispanic culture" when she called the beauty queen a "sp*c" during a radio interview.

It all went down last month when Lampanelli appeared on Sirius XM and said, "I actually would love to see [Dayana] giving birth. She’s a sp*c! She’s going to do it f**king soon, anyway. She’ll be knocked up before the end of the week.”

Now, Dayana is speaking out about the racial slur ... telling the Huffington Post, "I understand that it's Lisa's job to make fun of people for a living. If poking fun at me can help her sell tickets to her shows, no problem, I am happy to help her put food on her table. However, when she uses racial slurs, she is not only targeting myself but degrading an entire Hispanic culture."

We reached out to Lisa for comment -- so far, no response.

Lisa Lampanelli is nothing but a potty-mouth. She thinks she is a creative writer but if I wrote stuff with the EFF word as every other word and talked about black C--K I could do her job in a heartbeat. She totally sucks!

Oh please! The nonentity aka, Dayana Mendoza, is just trying to get her name in lights. Lisa offends all minorities equally - she is a comedian. It was a joke. Get a life Ms Mendoza and stop trying to speak for anyone other than yourself.

Love Lisa. She's hilarious. Racial slurs are part of her schtick so quit the bawling. Comedy is the appropriate place for racial joking. If she was Dayana's employer, then I might care.

So she called her that word. Guess what? The sun still came out and the earth is still spinning. We've got to stoop attacking every frigging thing someone does or says. It's beginning to look like people are telling us that the sky is falling.

Effing Donald Trump needs to fire this bitch asap! She is so mean and disgusting of a human being she should go hide under a rock. She hurls insults and names at everyone and even though Lou Ferrigno may not be the smartest guy on earth for he to call him a "loser" with two brain cells left in his head is uncalled for. He obviously isn't a loser since he is on the same show she is!! And don't get me started on how she treats Dayana.. can you say JEALOUS MUCH???

Dayona is very classy lady. I had reservations about her being on the show. She deserves better than this. Go do independent movies and work your way up. The Apprentice is for has beens.
