In recent years, Chelsea Handler has refocused her career to work more in the political activism field. She has written many different magazine columns over the years, focusing on topics such as women’s empowerment, privilege, and other hot-button issues. An outspoken opponent of Donald Trump, Handler has undoubtedly made many enemies with her bold opinions, but as she revealed in a recent interview, she feels as though she is on a personal journey that has led her to where she is. 

Along with becoming more outspoken in her political beliefs, Handler has also begun sharing a lot more to her social media pages.

Chelsea Handler recently shared her COVID-19 tips

In early April, Handler shared a video on her Instagram, showing her followers how to use a bra as a face shield in order to help prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus. Handler joked in the video, “Hey, for those of you who are in a bind and need a face mask but don’t have one, you can just take one of your bras.” Handler then demonstrated how to wrap the bra around her face, securing the clasp behind her head and using the cup as a cover for her face and mouth.

She didn’t exclude men from her tutorial either, writing in the caption that “With masks in short supply, we have to take matters into our own hands. Men included.” Fans and followers praised her humorous take on face mask tutorials and applauded her attempt to inject a little bit of humor into the often-tough day-to-day quarantine situation.
