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.

If Lisa Lampanelli was a talented comedienne she wouldn't have to resort to a flood of profanity in lieu of creativity. Sat thru three of her shows ... still waiting for her to tell one funny joke, profane or not. If they didn't need a token woman on the roasts she would never get work. Next time get Amy Madigan or Margaret Cho.

Calling a Hispanic a Sp*c is equal to calling a black person a N*gger. It should not be tolerated! This explains why she treated Dayana with hatred from the very beginning. I hope her career takes a nosedive! She's nothing, but a foul mouth racist pig!

So, because lampanelli says she's a comic, that's okay for her to use racial slurs? wtf kind of logic is THAT!? by the way, according to the most successful comics in the biz, anyone who's REALLY funny doesn't ever need to curse or use racial/homophobic slurs..lampanelli is that fat, ugly chick from high school who never got over being rejected for the pretty girls, and it shows on her, every time she opens that big, ugly, mouth. She's the no-talent..and, she talks about being the smart one on celeb apprentice??? why, then does she LOSE EVERY TASK!!!! She's a bully who needs to be stopped.

You have blacks who routinely denigrate their race. Now this white bitch believes that the power differential is in her court to denigrate Latinos. Hopefully Latinos will stamp that crap out from the bud and not take their leads from Blacks and embrace negative stereotypes. If that bitch wants to talk chit, she needs to stand up and own it.

Dayana, get a backbone! I'm a big Mo, big deal! LL can say this stuff because I don't think she has a prejudiced bone in her body! That's the only reason she could say it. We are all equal. I'm sorry that u feel u are singled out, wah, wah, wah! Get over it. The Jew, the geriatric, the Mo's, the Chinks and Gooks aren't complaining! Touch up your mascara, put in some ear plugs so that last brain cell isn't lost and suck it up! I think your great and really did a fantastic job last sunday but grow up!

Dayana is a beautiful lady, while the terrible "comic" ,who is not funny, is a old fat POS. Obviously there is jealously and watching the show the old hag has constant emotional breakdowns. There is no excuse for her behavior and her career, which already was a failure, is sure to tank now. No one will miss the old, fat pig.

Lisa Lampanelli is a hypocrite. She uses her comedy career as an EXCUSE for her behavior on and off stage. Being cleverly funny is one thing.....being a vicious bigot is another. The people that made her popular can take her down just as fast. When Lisa fades into the darkness then she can officially announce she is a member of the KKK.

This one's too easy..lisa's fat and ugly (i can't stomach seeing her profile--YUK), Dayana's gorgeous..it would never matter how smart dayana is because lisa hates pretty women and she literally cried about it. Lisa HAS to use racial/homophobic slurs because she's just not funny. PERIOD. Go away, fat, ugly bully--using your 'comic' title as a right to offend every race is so stupid. you make italians look ridiculous. or, should i say, guineas. AHOLE.

Dayana's comments about the situation were perfect. That's class. Lisa could learn something from her. Unfortunately, she won't.

I can't stand Lisa. She acts like shes smarter than everyone. She's had major rolls in every task and lost all but 2. Why hasn't she been fired yet? She's obviously not as smart as she thinks. She needs to climb off her pedestal and stop being a bully. How she got her fat ass up on that pedestal is a mystery to me.

I don't suppose Lisa would like to be referred to as a Wop. If she had any intelligence, she wouldn't be sabotaging her career, but oh, well.

Did you "reach out" anywhere for some news judgment or common sense?
