Chelsea Handler Receives Backlash For A Comment She Made About Melania Trump
In an interview with Variety, Chelsea Handler said that she would never have Melania Trump on her show because “she can barely speak English.”
It is no secret that Handler does not think much of the first family and frequently bashes both Donald and Melania Trump on her Twitter. When asked about this she responded by saying,
“I don’t respect either one of those people.”
Following the interview, many Trump fans have fired back at her, accusing her of immigrant shaming. Fans went on to remind Handler that, though her accent can be hard to understand, Melania speaks five languages, including English.
It is important to keep in mind that Chelsea Handler is a comedian and essentially is paid to make fun of other people, especially celebrities. However, comedian or not, we do not condone projecting the hatred out into the world.
