Anti-Trump celebrity Chelsea Handler approvingly shared a clip of anti-semitic Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan to her Instagram account on Sunday. As Fox News reports:
Comedian Chelsea Handler raised eyebrows for praising remarks from Nation of Islam founder Louis Farrakhan, who has faced controversy for decades over remarks widely seen as anti-Semitic.
The 45-year-old comic took to Instagram on Sunday and shared an old clip from “The Phil Donahue Show” where Farrakhan was taking questions from the audience.
One woman asked why can’t “white people, black people, Jewish people” “come together.” Farrakhan responded by saying that “the desire is good” but that reality is the “total opposite.”

He accused the audience of viewing black Americans as “second-class or inferior citizens” and enforcing “black inferiority” by stripping their African culture dating back to slavery and pushed white culture onto them, citing “white names,” the English language, and “white Jesus” as examples.
Farrakhan is a known radical anti-semite, and the Nation of Islam is considered a hate group.
