Outspoken comedian Chelsea Handler has just ticked off an entire country, and they want an apology ASAP!
On June 20, Handler and her co-hosts attacked Serbia and the Serbian people on Chelsea Lately when, during a joke about Amy Winehouse, they seemed to insinuate the entire country of Serbia was a â€œdisappointment.â€
It didn't take long for Serbians of all ages to call for a boycott of Handler and advertisers of her show on a Facebook page, asking for an apology stat.
The Facebook page states:
- â€œAlong with Chris Franjola, Natasha Leggero, and Greg Proops, Ms. Handler for 3 straight minutes ruthlessly attacked Serbia and its people. The verbal attacks came after a clearly intoxicated Amy Winehouse â€˜performedâ€™ in front of 20,000 people in Belgrade. After and during the performance, the people in attendance and state officials criticized Amy Winehouse, who had difficulty singing as a result of what would seem to be heroin usage. At this point, the attacks went from criticizing Amy Winehouse to attacking Serbia and its people.â€
The page currently has over 25,000 Facebook â€œlikesâ€, but the country is still waiting on an apology from Handler.
Was Chelsea out of line, or just being her usually funny self?
Should Chelsea apologize, or tell the Serbian peeps to chill out?
