Dear Lisa Lampanelli: Kindly Shut the F*ck Up.
No matter how many black men you fetishize for fodder for your “comedy” routine, you do not have the right to call Lena Dunham — one of the most privileged white women working in show biz right now — “nigga.” It’s not your word to use or reclaim.

Look, Lisa, I get it. You’ve fucked a metric ton of black dudes in your day, and somewhere along the way, you got it in your head that you can fuck your way to not being racist. But here’s the thing. You can’t.
Sure, you can tell jokes about your proclivity for black dick. You can make jokes at your own expense about your weight. Apparently you got skinny and now white dudes will fuck you? Is that it? Hooray for you, Lisa.
But when you say shit like this: “How many ‘hispanics’ does it take to clean a bathroom? None! That’s a nigger’s job!”
And this: “What do you call a black woman who’s had seven abortions? A crime fighter”
You’re not being a “lovable queen of mean.” You’re being a racist asshole.
Sure, you may get some laughs. People laugh at racist assholes all the time. People laugh at inappropriate shit all the time. But you should know that no matter how many people you make laugh, deep down inside you are nothing but a racist asshole. A racist asshole who happens to fuck black dudes, but a racist asshole all the same.
Let me say it again: no matter how many black guys you fuck, you can’t fuck your way out of being racist.
So do us all a favor and knock it the fuck off.
