Serbia is very upset with Chelsea Handler over a few jokes she told about Serbia and about Amy Winehouse's recent performance there. During the June 20 show of Chelsea Handler Lately, Chelsea and her co-hosts made fun of Winehouse's wrecked performance that was suppose to be her comeback. It ended up being her fall back.
After making fun of Amy, Handler and her crew began making fun of Serbia as a country. Basically, they stated that Serbia was as much a loser as Winehouse.
Now, a Serbian man by the name of Filip Filipi has set up a Facebook page calling for a boycott of Chelsea and her show. On the page, Filipi writes:
On June 20, Chelsea Handler and her co-hosts attacked Serbia and the Serbian people on that evening's program of Chelsea Lately...
The worst comment by Ms. Handler came at the conclusion of the assault on the Serbian people. In implying that somehow Serbs should not use Facebook, Ms. Handler read the statement of Serbian Defense Minister Dragan Sutanovac who said that the concert was a shame and a disappointment. At this point, Ms. Handler says that "Guess what? So is your country."
Is there any reason why someone wouldn't get upset with Chelsea Handler? That's her job, she offends and delights in offending. Chelsea's sharp wit has often translated into pure annoyance, and now, it will be a test to see if E! will force her to apologize for her comments. She's never really apologized for anything before, and chances are she won't now.
