Chelsea Handler “jokes” about Chaz Bono being on “DWTS”
HollywoodNews.com: Chelsea Handler has hosted the LA Gay & Lesbian Center’s annual gala and is generally known as being an LGBT ally.
But she is getting a lot of pushback for remarks she and others made on her nightly E! show Chelsea Lately about transgender male Chaz Bono being cast on ABC’s Dancing With the Stars.
Via the GLAAD blog:
Last night’s episode of Chelsea Lately repeatedly made a mockery of Chaz Bono’s transgender identity when discussing the transgender advocate’s upcoming appearance on Dancing With the Stars.
Host Chelsea Handler herself started the discussion off with a joke about Chaz Bono’s identity and anatomy, but was joined a few moments later by two members of her all-comedian panel in using transphobic humor to mock him.
Chelsea Handler: The Dancing with the Stars cast has been announced and, this is season 13, it includes Chaz Bono, otherwise known as Chastity Bono [laughs] before she got her penis [laughs]….
Out comedian Fortune Feimster soon said that she was personally most looking forward to watching Bono on the program, saying:
Fortune Feimster: I’m, I’m like you, I’m excited about Chaz Bono. Cause I used to watch the show…
CH: I wonder why. [laughs]
