    Of course Chelsea Handler isn’t racist. You know you why? Because she dates Black people. At least that’s her reasoning.

    The comedian caused quite a stir Oscar night when she tweeted a promo for her new book Uganda Be Kidding Me, her new collection of essays about traveling through Africa with friends, after 12 Years A Slave star Lupita Nyong’o won for Best Supporting Actress.

    The connection? “She’s African,” Handler said in an interview with “Good Morning America” to unapologetically plead her case. “She’s Kenyan and she was talking about begin African so yeah. The book is about Africa so yeah there is a connection.”

    “People are always upset with me about something. I don’t take it personally,” she explained.

    When host George Stephanopoulos pressed Chelsea to clarify her remarks, which many Twitter users called “tasteless” and “racist,” she said “it’s not a serious thing.”

    “People are mad at me all the time. If I was worried about that then I would be spending a lot of time online. I’d rather be a little more productive,” she said. “I’m not racist. I date a lot of black people, so that would be a difficult thing to explain to them.”
