Chelsea Handler said “white men” need to stop complaining about “cancel culture,” asking what’s so “fucking hard” about apologizing.
“I think that when people make an apology, and it’s sincere, that that should count for something,” the 46-year-old comedian shared during her appearance on the “Call Her Daddy” podcast. The comments were noted by Mediaite in a piece published Friday. (RELATED: Chelsea Handler Choose National ‘Coming Out’ Day To Imply That Lindsey Graham Is ‘Closeted’)
“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,” she added. “All you have to do is say you’re sorry and mean it. Why’s that so fucking hard?” (RELATED: Katt Williams Shuts Down Idea Of ‘Cancel Culture,’ Says Comedians Worried About It Should Find New Gig)

“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 continued. “‘Thank you for telling me, thank you for spending your time explaining this me and I’m sorry that I didn’t know better.'”
