Chelsea Handler says she needed therapy before interviewing conservatives for her white privilege documentary

Therapy isn’t going to cure this creature.

From Daily Mail: Chelsea Handler claimed she needed ‘therapy’ before interviewing conservatives for her documentary on white privilege.

The comedian-turned-political activist made a Netflix documentary exploring the notion of white privilege called ‘Hello, Privilege. It’s Me, Chelsea’.

As part of the show, Handler interviewed four white conservative women. During an appearance on American talk show The View, Handler quipped that she needed therapy before the conversations even took place.

Show co-host Sunny Hostin mentioned that during the documentary Handler had asked the four women what ‘white privilege’ meant to them, before detailing how one woman had argued that black people have privilege too and are able to get into college based on their skin colour.

Another of the women said in the interview that it was time to move on from a ‘minuscule’ issue.

The documentary has received mixed reviews among critics with Vice describing how the comic ‘stumbles through a well-meaning but misguided reckoning with her place in the world’.

Meanwhile conservative news site Daily Wire writes: ‘For both the “Woke” and sleeping viewers out there, comedian-turned-full-time political activist Chelsea Handler hits all the wrong notes in her Netflix documentary exploring her so-called “white privilege.”‘

The View co-host Hostin said she had found it interesting that Handler had spoken to the four conservative women about their polarizing opinions on the concept of white people’s privilege in society. ‘I thought it was really interesting to just hear people say that because they felt that way,’ she said.

Hostin then asked Handler what her reaction was to the interview. ‘I had to do a lot of therapy to even have these conversations with people, because I have a temper and I’m reactive,’ Handler replied.

‘And when somebody’s annoying I want to tell them that they’re annoying or that they’re stupid. But my exercise in this film was to be more quiet and to stop inserting myself.’

She went on to say: ‘In a way you could say those women hung themselves out to dry, from our perspective, but from theirs they really believe that. And it’s important for us to all understand what everyone’s really thinking and believing, and to have the conversation.

Co-host Joy Behar joined the debate, asserting that the women in the documentary needed to learn the history of slavery and Jim Crow ‘before they open their mouths’.

‘Hello, Privilege. It’s Me, Chelsea’ was released on Netflix on September 13, 2019. Directed by Alex Stapleton, it strives to explore the societal privilege that benefits white people over non-white people.
