Well this should really come as no surprise.
Not-so-funny comedian Chelsea Handler is headed for Inglewood’s Fabulous Forum next month with her “Uganda be Kidding Me” show.
Handler recently made an ass of herself (again) during the Academy Awards when she tweeted about Sunday’s Best Supporting Actress winner Lupita Nyongo: “#AngelinaJolie just filed adoption papers #lupitanyongo #Oscars -@chelseahandler.”
Other gems from the night included: “Congratulations #12yearsaslave Go to Africa or buy #ugandabekiddingme http://amzn.to/1de1ka9 #aheadofthecurve #Oscars.”
On Tuesday’s Good Morning America she laughed and told George Stephanopoulos “I’m not racist. I date a lot of black people, so that would be a difficult thing to explain to them.”
Dating Black people so that you can infiltrate the race and then turn around go back to white people and make money off of making fun of us doesn’t count. We call people like that agent provocateurs.
In a perfect world the Africans and African-Americans in Los Angeles would shut this shit down and send a message to both Chelsea Handler and the Forum that we don’t play that around here. But again, that’s in a perfect world.
By the way, does anyone know how much of the proceeds from Handler’s book and show are sent back to Uganda? Just wondering.
