Chelsea Handler under fire for vulgar video
Yahoo7 Be•10 December 2017
Chelsea Handler has been slammed for posting a video on Twitter promoting the new season of her Netflix show, Chelsea.
In the video, Fortune Feimster plays the White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, mocking her weight and appearance in a fake makeup tutorial.
The comedian refers to Sarah’s face as a “big, fat biscuit” in the video and also ridicules the press secretary’s physical appearance.

“Right now my skin is dry, just like Puerto Rico right before that one rainy day they had,” Fortune, 37, says in the clip.
Many have not seen the comedy in the trailer for Chelsea’s series and slammed her for being hypocritical.

“You cannot claim to champion women’s rights and simultaneously mock a successful woman’s looks simply because you disagree politically,” one Twitter user wrote.
Others branded Chelsea a “bully”.
“Glad to see how much of a strong feminist you are, by promoting positive body image of other females,” another Twitter user said.
This post prompted a response from Chelsea herself and she wasn’t backing down to her critics.
“This woman deserves to be taken down,” she wrote. “She is pure evil.”
