Brad Pitt’s ex-wife Jennifer Aniston has stayed silent since news of the Brangelina split broke, but her foul-mouthed comedian best friend surely did not. Chelsea Handler slammed Angelina Jolie in a vicious rant calling her a “f*****g lunatic.”
Angelina Jolie has filed for divorce from Brad Pitt… he wants the China; she wants Pax and Maddox. ##sorrycouldnthelpmyself— Chelsea Handler (@chelseahandler) September 21, 2016
Chelsea Handler did not hold back in her hatred-filled rant about Angelina Jolie’s split from Brad Pitt on her Netflix show. In a preview clip for tonight’s show, Handler joked that she was ready to get married now that Brangelina has split.
“Brad and Angelina always said they wouldn’t get married until everyone could get married.
“And I always said I wouldn’t get married until they got divorced, so I’m officially accepting proposals. I’m ready.”
Handler went off on Brad Pitt, who was married to Chelsea Handler’s best friend Jennifer Aniston before he reportedly cheated on her while filming Mr. and Mrs. Smith with Angelina Jolie. She didn’t have kind things to say about Angelina either.
“There are rumors that part of the problem was that Brad was allegedly drinking and smoking too much weed. I wonder why he would need to self-medicate?”
Handler suggested Pitt should have spent his time with men his own age instead of with Angie and their “85 kids.”
“Maybe because he could have been spending the last 12 years at Lake Como hanging out with George Clooney and Matt Damon instead of being stuck in a house with 85 kids speaking 15 different languages. Oh yeah, because he married a f*****g lunatic, that’s why.”
Chelsea Handler’s comments have caused an uproar on the internet. As a late night talk show host, it is technically her job to comment on the major headlines of the day, but Handler definitely lashed out a bit more than usual.
Some people found Handler’s comments to be hilarious, while others found it completely offensive.
While others on social media commented that Handler’s comments only made it look like Jennifer Aniston still cared about Brad Pitt.
Since Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s divorce news became public, Jennifer Aniston turned into a hit internet meme. Twitter users have been posting various memes of Aniston, all have a similar “karma” message.
Jennifer Aniston is now happily married to Justin Theroux. It has been 11 years since her divorce from Brad Pitt, yet it seems she has not been able to escape Brangelina and their drama.
Chelsea Handler’s comments are causing more drama around an already dramatic situation.
The 41-year-old comedian doesn’t seem to care. Chelsea Handler saying and doing offensive things is nothing new.
This is also not the first time that Handler has slammed Angelina Jolie in public.
In 2010, Handler told Katie Couric in an interview with Glamour magazine that she was not a fan.
“Yeah, I’m not a fan hers. She just doesn’t come off to me as a sincere woman. She seems like a woman that you’d really want to avoid.”
That same year Handler bashed Angelina Jolie at one of her comedy shows, according to ET Online.
“She’s a homewrecker, she is.”
“She can rescue as many babies from as many countries as she wants to, I don’t f*****g believe you.”
In 2013 while on Watch What Happens Live, she referred to Jolie as a “demon.”
Although, the comedian has claimed that it has nothing to do with her friendship with Jennifer Aniston.
“It has nothing to do with Jennifer.”
“As a woman, I know when you see somebody walking across the room that’s a bad girl. I just don’t like Angelina Jolie. I don’t think she’s a girl’s girl. I like girl’s girls!”
