Did Chelsea Handler take her Oscar jokes too far? The comedienne and talk show host is in hot water for jokes she made while serving as The Huffington Post's guest tweeter during the Academy Awards.
At 8:30 p.m. ET, @HuffingtonPost announced to its nearly four million Twitter followers that they were handing over the account to Handler, with instructions to "Take it away!" And boy, did she:
Several of her jokes were racially charged, starting with a response to Lupita Nyong'o's win for best supporting actress: "#AngelinaJolie just filed adoption papers #lupitanyongo #Oscars -@chelseahandler"
She also jumped on the opportunity to promote her upcoming book, Uganda Be Kidding Me, which is out Tuesday, and did so again when 12 Years a Slave won for best picture. "Congratulations #12yearsaslave Go to Africa or buy #ugandabekiddingme"
