Today is National Coming Out Day. And here’s how Chelsea Handler is paying tribute to the LGBT community:
— Chelsea Handler (@chelseahandler) October 11, 2018
We’re looking at you, Chelsea Handler. And all we see is a hateful, homophobic shrew.
No. This is not a good joke
— Mommy, a real person (@MommyIsAPerson) October 11, 2018
damn this joke sucks
— 9 V O L T (@9_volt_) October 11, 2018
Just par for the course with her.
This is gross and Uncalled for.
— ?️Ally-spoop?️ (@Bootstrap_Alice) October 11, 2018
Again … par for the course.
Do better Chelsea. This kind of joke is tired.
— DoH (@DeeOhAytch) October 11, 2018
Haha yeah being gay is embarassing what a cool joke to tell in 2018
— Fall Daniel (@ItsDanSheehan) October 11, 2018
homophobic jokes still arent cute chels
— Billy Pickett (@BillyPickett) October 11, 2018
So homophobia is cool when it’s used to try and denigrate Republicans? Interesting…

Jesus, Chelsea, READ. THE. ROOM.
Never the time, or the place, never funny.

These ”jokes” aren't funny. pic.twitter.com/6t9yRg8HjO

This is a lot less funny and way more homophobic than you think it is
— SlayDies Hatchet Club (@subtlerbutler) October 11, 2018
WHY do you do these things? what about this is funny to you?!

Insinuating that someone you dislike is gay is actually not pro-gay behavior.
— Kit Winter (@KitWinter) October 11, 2018
"people struggling with self-loathing due to their homophobic environment make a GREAT punchline, this is a+ material siri send tweet"
— Bread Berries (@bread_berries) October 11, 2018
Mock homosexuality on coming out day to… own.. the… cons? ?
— Your Dad?? (@eaglefartz) October 11, 2018
Wait you don't like @LindseyGrahamSC so you… call him gay?? But hey good try at being funny I guess
— Joseph Snyder (@JosephSnyder2) October 11, 2018
HOW MANY TIMES CHELSEA?!? this is offensive af
— Justin Forbes (@jfoLSU) October 11, 2018
I would rather go see Lindsey Graham talk than see Chelsea, and I abhor Republicans.
— Introvert Gay (@introvertgay) October 11, 2018
Insinuating someone is gay on Twitter and making fun of the fact they are hiding because of that fact is not ok – even if the person is Lindsey Graham. There is plenty to take him to task, like literally anything he says or does
— Peter (@pjluntz) October 11, 2018
Chelsea, I'm transgender and have a background in comedy. This joke is in bad taste. We need to punch up the LGBTQ community, not down. #NationalComingOutDay
— Danielle Solzman at #ChiFilmFest (@DanielleSATM) October 11, 2018
All this does is cheapen today . You are hateful enough to fit right in at a trump rally .
— Amy Weiland (@amy_weiland) October 11, 2018
Hm. How about don't? Have you tried don't? Give don't a try, if you haven't. Don't.
— caspersatz ? (@casersatz) October 11, 2018
Making fun of someone based on the fact they are, or are perceived to be queer, is homophobic. Happy #NationalComingOutDay to you too.
— Feminazgûl (@jkyles10) October 11, 2018
Calling someone gay to insult them.
That's so woke. https://t.co/O1FAypKXF1
— RBe (@RBPundit) October 11, 2018
Not cool Chelsea.
Jokes like this only make it harder for those who are dying inside to come out.
— Innovative Creature (@InnovativeChick) October 11, 2018
When did it become "woke" to mock GOP senators with (inaccurate) claims that they're gay? The hypocrisy here is sickening. https://t.co/Vy8LYOTbz3
— Brad Polumbo (@brad_polumbo) October 11, 2018
Hey, this isn’t allyship. It reinforces a negative connotation about homosexuality and links bigotry to being in the closet which is unhelpful. This tweet is trash. And you know it.
— R. Eric Thomas (@oureric) October 11, 2018
Ah yes, keep the gay jokes coming. With friends like this, who needs enemies. https://t.co/3JxfsJCtun
