A few days ago Celebrity Apprentice star Lisa Lampanelli tweeted something very offensive about her costar Lou Ferigno AKA ‘The Hulk!’ Lisa tweeted, “Lou isn’t deaf. His ears are just stupider than the rest of him.” For those who watch Celebrity Apprentice, you know it was very offensive to say especially because Lou didn’t do anything or doesn’t talk to Lisa. I immediately told her off after reading that and yeah I get she’s a comedian but that’s just not funny? We got into a quick twitter fight. Click Here to see if you haven’t already.
Anywho, ever since the stars of Celebrity Apprentice were announced, Caroline has gotten extremely close to Lisa Lampanelli. An AllAboutTRH reader tweeted Caroline saying, “since Lisa is such a great friend of yours, what do you think of her making fun of Lou for his hearing disability? Thoughts?” Caroline responded and said, “I have a brother who is deaf-Lisa has a heart of gold-”
What does Caroline having a brother who is deaf have anything to do with Lisa making fun of Lou Ferigno? I don’t want to make this about anyone else but let’s just say Teresa or Danielle or anyone for that matter made the deaf comment. Do you think Caroline would be okay with it? Because I don’t. I think Caroline would be especially insulted because her brother is deaf. Thoughts?
UPDATE: Lisa thanked Caroline for defending her saying, “Thanks for defending my Lou Ferrigno deaf joke. An insult comic makes fun of ALL, not some. If Lou can’t take it, that’s sad.”
