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 L. will be watching the Apprentice from home soon enough. Penn Jillette and Clay Aiken are the only two that even remotely resemble a project manager.

"Sp*c" is the same as referring to a Black person as a "n****r"... I find it very hypocritable no one sees this as a RACIAL SLUR! is it not racial because its no a white person calling a black person a "n*****".... Sadly, all majority groups are still confronted with racism!

LMFAO!Just last week Lampanelli was running around, spreading how misogynistic and abusive Arsenio Hall was for using the c-word in reference to Aubrey O'Day. Ms. Lampanelli claimed it was the first time in years she was shaken up by such "sexist verbal abuse". I haven't barely had the time to blink and Lampanelli is in the news for making racial slurs. This piece of dog **** has been getting a pass for the most obscene and offensive language for her entire career and she has the gall to run around like a crazy person screaming "verbal abuse". She freely uses the n-word about blacks and the s-word about Hispanics. She needs to be kicked off the f*cking air. News flash but the ability to say something completely and totally offensive is not a talent and it's not funny. Anybody can do it. She's a no-talented fatass who makes me sick. And the only group I haven't seen her make fun of is white folks! There's a shocker!

"Political Correctness" is a DISEASE!!! Lisa Lampanelli is one of the last comedians that has no fear of this and the audience LOVES her for that..The same way people loved the late, great Richard Pryor. I have attended many of her shows down in South Beach and I can say that Latinos, black people, white people, gay people, were lined up out the front door of the theater to see her rip EVERYONE..
If Ms Mendoza does her homework, perhaps rent "Take It Like A Man","Dirty Girl" or watch a comedy central roast or two, she will see that's not the first time she said that very same thing about Hispanics, as well as everyone else. Sounds like Ms Mendoza needs to lighten up just a little and get a sense of humor, if not, no problem, just don't listen to or watch her and don't assume the position of speaking for an entire race of people....

I have watched all the episodes of this Celebrity App and Dayana has been nothing but CLASS!! She IS a smart girl..but she was "blocked" by Loudmouth Lamanelli, Aubrey and Debbie Gibson when she was on the women's team. Every time Dayana came back from the boardroom..."Loudmouth" had something insulting to say.

This isn't the first disgusting insult Lampenelli has made to this woman...she must be terribly jealous of her. Dayana is beautiful, and Lampenelli is a middle-aged, obese, and apparently unhappy woman...who takes her unhappiness out on others.

That was an awful racist remark and I hope that Trump says something to this cow about it.

Nobody should care what that fat hag says. She is stupid, arrogant and rude. She claims she is vulgar as her comedic art, but really, she is vulgar because she hates disgusting self, so knocking down other people lets her trick herself into thinking that she stands taller. She really is the ugliest American!

Lisa should remember one thing about Latinos, some belong to gangs and if they feel you've disrespected them, well, just use your imagination.

It's Lisa's thing. I think context and intention should always trump actual words (no pun intended). Lisa has no actual hate for anyone. The day she commits an actual hate crime, then I will retract this statement, but until then, people need to stop trying to find a reason to bitch.

For any of you to say that people should get over someone being called a derogatory name are you f'ing serious, do you think it would be okay for black people or Spanish people to call you a white ass cracker red neck with flat asses, no lips with not so much as a hint of rather. And granted j lo can't sing but neither can Britney Spears and her dumb ass is making millions. And to the idiot who even mentioned Obama what the hell does he have to do with this, he is white and black so I'm sure he's gotten called every name in the book growing up, but yet look where he is now, people like you have to kiss his black/white ass. Ha, ha, ha, isn't this country great.

Lisa has many gay fans, and she calls them ***s in every show. She was in "relationships" with black men, and she talked about them too. She teased Asians. She been made jokes about Hispanics. If Mendoza really cared, she should have been said something, not when she mentions you specifically.
