Chelsea Handler slammed Angelina Jolie while honoring the actress’s divorce attorney, Laura Wasser, at a charity event in Los Angeles on Thursday night. The comedienne, who’s no fan of the actress, joked that Brad Pitt needed “emancipation” from his estranged wife. Watch the video below.

Handler introduced Wasser at the 2016 Gala For The Children, during which the divorce attorney was recognized for her work with A Place Called Home, an organization that provides support to underprivileged children. But prior to bringing Wasser on stage, Handler decided to take a dig at the lawyer’s high-profile client. “[Wasser] is such a humanitarian, she’s actually currently negotiating Brad Pitt’s emancipation,” the comedienne quipped. She then added, “Speaking of kids who need help,” and began talking about the children involved with A Place Called Home.

This isn’t the first time Handler has taken a swipe at Jolie following her and Pitt’s tumultuous breakup. The comedienne, who’s close friends with Pitt’s ex-wife Jennifer Aniston, previously said on her Netflix show “Chelsea,” “There are rumors that part of problem was that Brad was allegedly drinking and smoking too much weed. I wonder why he needed to self-medicate.” She quickly added, “Oh yeah, because he married a f***ing lunatic, that’s why.” Watch Handler’s latest jab at Jolie in the video below.
