Did comedian Lisa Lampanelli really stereotype Latinas as baby-making machines?
The Queen of Mean Lampanelli has made no secret of the fact that she can’t stand her fellow “Celebrity Apprentice” contestant Dayana Mendoza, a former Miss Universe from Venezuela (SDL&M’s girl crush).
But during a radio interview last week, Lampanelli — who usually just mocks and criticizes Mendoza — took her feud with the former beauty queen a little too far when she made remarks that Mendoza is now calling racist.
“I actually would love to see [Dayana] giving birth. She’s a spic! She’s going to do it f***ing soon, anyway,” Lampanelli said on the air. “She’ll be knocked up before the end of the week.”
Mendoza tells The Huffington Post that Lampanelli’s comments are out of line and racist.
“I understand that it’s Lisa’s job to make fun of people for a living,” she said. “If poking fun at me can help her sell tickets to her shows, no problem, I am happy to help her put food on her table. However, when she uses racial slurs, she is not only targeting myself but degrading an entire Hispanic culture.”
