Chelsea Handler Faces Backlash For 'Homophobic' Tweet Aimed at Lindsey Graham
Comedian Chelsea Handler is facing heavy criticism on Twitter after posting a tweet many people saw as “homophobic.”????She wrote, ““If you’re wondering why Republicans took a sick day today, it’s probably because it’s #NationalComingOutDay.
Looking at you @LindseyGrahamSC.”??????A lot of people replied to her tweet, calling her out for being homophobic.
????One person wrote, are you there, homophobia?
It's me, chelsea.”??????Another said, “Why is there such a gulf in understanding this fact: being gay is not something to shame or embarrass someone with.??It's staggering that, at this point, people who appear to be our community's allies still don't get it.”??????This isn’t the first time Handler fired off a joke on twitter that was seen as homophobic.??????In April she tweeted, “Jeff Sessions is definitely a bottom,” which the Daily Caller says implies Jeff Sessions has gay sex.
??????Despite facing backlash for both tweets, Handler has stood her ground and not deleted either one.??
