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.

I used to like Lisa when I thought her meanness was just an act, but her behavior on The Apprentice is downright embarrassing. She is a juvenile, catty 12 year old trapped in a 50 year old woman's body. It's painful to listen to her speak at times.

Oh good grief - get over it. You wear your heart on your sleeve. As your mama told you long ago... "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but *words will never hurt me*.

Racism doesn't exist in America least that's what a white person recently told me.

That is her style of comedy. She is tearing down stereotypes by using them in a satirical way. If you are too stupid to understand it, try to think harder.

What did Lisa say that was wrong?

So, she should make "fun" of D. Trump instead.

Lisa has been a non stop screaming harpy on Celebrity Apprentice. She's obnoxious and always blowing her own horn. It's amazing to me how Dayana has been able to put up with Lisa's B.S. with such grace and dignity. Lisa is obviously jealous of Dayana. Lisa is always taking credit for the driving force behind the tasks--the tasks they always lose. Being that caustic may serve Lisa well in her comedy act, but in real human relations and being a team player it's horrendous. Lisa needs to get a clue because she comes across as a loser trying to convince everyone she's the best thing ever.

"Thats what she does" That's her thing" That's her style" SO WHAT! She's still a sorry excuse for a human being.
