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 uses shock humor, curse words, and racially biased insults. She does not posses the whit or creativity to work clean, so she appeals to the lowest common denominator. She picks on everyone equally, including herself. But I don't think that completely condones her behavior. This is a country of free speech and free choice, so I exercise my freedom to not listen to her.

She is NOT a comic. Just a bully. If you read/hear her a bully - you will just be disgusted, not laughing.

When people use misogyny to make a point about how racism doesn't belong in comedy, it's kinda hard to take them seriously. But then, clearly most of these comments are from reality tv viewers – not people who enjoy R-rated comedy.

when she's on stage doing her job as a comedian is one thing but when you're off stage and you go on a radio station and use racial slurs this is when you can tell that this fatso is taking advantage of the situation.

Lampanelli is a ugly fat old hag. She got a pass on racial slurs a long time ago and for some reason she just keeps pushing it more and more. I don't think she is going to stop, that's her whole routine.
