Liberal comedian Chelsea Handler slammed “white men” for complaining about cancel culture “why’s the f**king party over?”
Handler appeared on the podcast Call Her Daddy this week and argued that people shouldn’t be canceled if they acknowledge and address their bad behavior, but took issue with those who refuse to accept and apologize for their scandals.
“I think that when people make an apology, and it’s sincere, that that should count for something,” she told the host. “And the people that aren’t apologizing need to understand why they need to apologize, and actually address the issue head-on instead of trying to get back in under the door.”
“All you have to do is say you’re sorry and mean it,” she continued. “Why’s that so f**king hard?”
She said that “white men” are the chief offenders of this type of behavior and chided them for it. “Why’s the f**king party over? We can’t rape you guys anymore? You gonna tell on us?”
Handler also had advice for men who try to discuss sexist behavior with women or white people who want to have discourse about racist behavior with minorities.
“If you’re a man talking to a woman about sexism, or if you’re a white person talking to a person of color about racism, the only responses are ‘Thank you,’” Handler said. “‘Thank you for telling me, thank you for spending your time explaining this me and I’m sorry I didn’t know better.’”
Handler remarked upon the issue similarly to the New York Times. “We’re all kind of saying goodbye to so many of the things that we’re so accustomed to doing, having to say goodbye to words that you used to think were OK, having to say goodbye to phrases and ways to describe things that you think were OK, having to say goodbye to men for a while because they’re on probation,” she remarked.
“And until they’ve proven to us that there are more good ones than bad ones, there’s one big group we’re still able to make fun of,” Handler said. “And that’s white guys who don’t seem to be getting the message of the movement that’s happening.”
