Chelsea Handler Comes Under Fire for Mocking Sarah Huckabee Sanders' Appearance

The comedian sparks outrage on Twitter after tweeting a fake makeup tutorial video that features Emily Fortune Feimster as the White House press secretary.

AceShowbiz - Has Chelsea Handler crossed the line? A strong Donald Trump anti-fan, the comedienne has landed in hot water after mocking Sarah Huckabee Sanders' weight and physical appearance with a video to promote her new Netflix series.

The video in question is a fake makeup tutorial video featuring Emily Fortune Feimster as the White House press secretary. She posted the video on her Twitter page, writing along with it, "Get the 'Sarah Huckabee Sanders' look @fortunefunny. New @chelseashow Friday."

In the clip, Feimster's Sanders shows a step-by-step tutorial of how she applies her makeup. She includes crude jokes that take aim at Sanders' face, President Trump and his administration in each step.

"Right now my skin is dry, just like Puerto Rico right before that one rainy day they had," she says before applying moisturizer to her face. She says when using lotion, "My face is a big, fat biscuit!"

She also compares her makeup foundation to the foundation of America, "This is foundation, and just like the foundation of America, it's Republican, it's strong, and it's white.... actually, it looks pretty brown."

Feimster's joke also suggests that Sanders' physical appearance resembles a man. "I used to not know what foundation was, but our great president was kind enough to take me to a Sephora and he said to the employee, 'Hey, you see that fellow over here? Make him a woman,' " she says.

Soon after she shared the video, Handler was heavily criticized by Twitter users. "Glad to see how much of a strong feminist you are, by promoting positive body image of other females," one sarcastically wrote to the former "Chelsea Lately" host.

"Keep it up and everyone will despise you. You are obviously a very unhappy person. Maybe as a modern feminist you should act like a lady for a change," another added.

Despite the backlash, Handler didn't seem to feel apologetic at all as she responded to some of the comments, "This woman deserves to be taken down. She is pure evil."

Another Twitter user commented, "If you have a problem with her, criticize her ideas or her words. Making fun of someone's appearance is both a shallow form of argument and a shallow form of humor. Taking jabs at someone's appearance will not help will only reinforce harmful stereotypes."
