Chelsea Handler is under fire over a homophobic tweet she wrote… again.

Yesterday, on National Coming Out Day, Handler made a dig at Republicans by cracking a joke about Sen. Lindsey Graham‘s sexuality.

“If you’re wondering why Republicans took a sick day today, it’s probably because it’s #NationalComingOutDay,” she wrote. “Looking at you @LindseyGrahamSC.”

Unfortunately for her, the joke bombed. Turns out people don’t find gay jokes as funny as they did back in 2007 when Handler was, ya know, relevant.

But this isn’t the first time the 43-year-old comedian has come until fire for attacking Graham’s sexuality.

In January, she tweeted that the 63-year-old is being blackmailed with a “dick sucking” video.

She really seems to have some sort of grudge against him.

Now, we totally get it. Lindsey Graham is not a good guy and certainly no ally to the LGBTQ community.

Not only did he oppose the repeal of DADT and gay-inclusive immigration reform, but he was also staunchly against gay marriage, calling it a road to polygamy.

But surely there are ways to criticize him that don’t involve cracking lame gay jokes about him?
