American late night comedy talk show host Chelsea Handler loves a bit of controversy especially when it comes to racist jokes, so it would come as no surprise that she may be treading on a very thin line regarding her recent quips about black women.
On a recent episode of her Chelsea Lately show, Handler said:
"In particular I'm looking for a new black lady friend. I don't want to make it a racial thing, but the last black girlfriend I had, robbed me."
She then goes on to mock VH1's dating series Tough Love whereby a clip of a black female candidate is shown looking for a partner on the show, and is grilled by the show's host on her honesty.
The host then says, "You're husband doesn't know you're on a dating show!" whereby the other fellow contestants looked shocked and gasp.
The black contestant then responds non-plussed, 'Why does that matter?''
The clip then moves back onto Handler, who says to the audience, "This is what I'm looking for!"
Although it should be light-hearted humour, Handler may be taking it too far, and could offend viewers.
Are you offended by her jokes?
