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.

Alright Lisa, spot on. The Catholic church needs to take back the statement "be fruitful and prosper", they needed have more babies when they made that comment because of the Black Plague.
The way their having babies now the world will be 15 billion in 2020. The Chinese know this, that's why they set up population control in their country.

I would hate to be a baby born at this time, hate to say what the World will look like at 2050.

Team Dayana, a beautiful and classy lady. Comments about her "being knocked up before the end of the week" and calling her a racial slur are a reflection of Lisa's own poor self image.

Lisa is disgusting, her behavior on Celebrity Apprentice is just "Mean Girl" like, she is a bully. Her and Aubrey were bullies and just malicious to others, then always crying and whining how they were the victims and carried the load (if they did, they CHOSE that).

Lisa has treated Dayana horribly. Pure jealousy on Lisa's part the way she would bully and gang up on the pretty thin women.

She is fat, unhappy, to act out and talk from a place of ignorance as she does.

It is not funny Lisa, it is hurtful, vindictive and defines your character acting like that toward others.

Lisa has some serious issues.

i don't mind listening to Lisa's comedy act but her racial slurs are acceptable during her SHOWS, not during radio interviews and such. The people paying to see her know what to expect. People listening to the radio shouldn't have to worry about listening to her being racist.

Pull your heads out your asses, Lampanelli is a comedian. It's her job to make fun of people. Stop taking yourself so seriously. The whole self esteem movement is killing this country.

I dont like either of them. Everyone already knows what Lisa is like and I dont have to go into detail. BUT for Dayana she also is a Bitch. She knew what it was like to be attacked by Lisa and 1. She DIDN'T listen to Lou's ideas which would of helped them WIN. 2. She treated Lou like garbage. 3. She sided with Lisa against him when in fact his ideas were great. He also won when he was PM so this shows that he isnt as dumb as they are insulting him with. 4. Dayana sat quietly while Lisa lit into Lou hurling her foul mouth at him saying he didnt do anything. Dayana knew for a fact that he DID DO SOMETHING BUT SHE DIDN'T LISTEN .. She didn't even come to his defense in the boardroom and sat there like little miss perfect.. I hope next week she gets Lisa back on her again because she deserves it after being so nasty and cruel to Lou. NOBODY wanted to listen to him and treated him like garbage BUT he WON his task.. Dayana let Penn go even though he wasn't even there helping.. What does this tell you about her.. She is just as bad as Lisa.

I'm Latina and laughed at Lisa's comments. That her thing. If you can't stand the heat or want to hear her say things like that, then you shouldn't do the Apprentice.

I'm sorry, but Lisa Lampanelli isn't funny. I'm not saying that she isn't because of this whole incident, but in general, she just is not funny. It's like when she tells a joke, you think about it, and then realize it really want funny at all, just tacky.

Lisa thinks she has some balls, truth be told..."Lisa you look like a very old man in drag! Bitch you're giving drag queens a bad rap!"

She calles herself a comedian only she's not. Ellen DeGeneras is a comedian and never had to use cursing every other word to try and be funny. All that says going for the shock value, because she's not funny. Might be funny if in your 20's. A 50 year old needing to do this is not funny.

Lisa at 50 doesn't have that talent.

Lisa is a disgusting fat hog. She is so painfully insecure that she feels the need to overcompensate with humor. The only way she can get through the day is to put others down -I'm sure the prays every night that all pretty people will be wiped off the earth lol.

Get the **** over it. She is a comedian not a presidential hopeful. People have become far too sensitive. Comedians make us laugh sometimes at others expense sometimes at our own as well, get over it... Like T.I said about homosexuals " If you can take a **** you can take a joke".
