Whoa, whoa, whoa…
We know Lisa Lampanelli is a controversial comedian who says whatever the f*ck she wants…
But why is she calling Girls creator Lena Dunham a volatile, racial slur?!?!
OOohhhhhhh wait! She doesn't mean it in a NEGATIVE sense at all!
Lisa's just using the now familiar usage of the term — ie. "friend, acquaintance, brah" — in regards to Lena… cause they are apparently total besties!!

Now, obviously people are going to have OPINIONS about Lisa using the explosive word on Twitter — it IS a very offensive string of letters after all. And we can testify that the use of some words in our society, including this one, is uncalled for and demeaning.
But there is something to be said about acknowledging the "intention" of a word. Lisa isn't trying to put Lena down, belittle what makes her different or derail her with ugliness. She's quite literally accomplishing the complete opposite.
Is it still inappropriate? Yeah, we can see that…
But what is Lisa Lampanelli if NOT inappropriate!
