Chelsea Handler is all-natural. The comedian is denying she had plastic surgery on her chest following rumors she had a breast lift. The former “Chelsea Lately” host took to Twitter Wednesday to set the record straight.
“Um ... there have been a lot of men who've touched my boobies, but not one of them has ever been a doctor,” Handler wrote after the rumor went viral. The message was shared hundreds of times and garnered hundreds of likes.

An hour later, she shared a picture of herself lying on the ground without a top on, exposing her breasts. “Here idiots. A totally sober portrayal of proof,” she wrote. The half-nude image was favorited more than 2,000 times.
The boob job rumor about Handler, 40, started after Us Weekly wrote that she had a breast lift six months ago because her lady lumps made her “stressed about looking saggy,” a source said. The site claimed she was thrilled with the results. “She is obsessed, so she keeps posting.”

Handler posting topless photos seems to be more about defiance than narcissism. The self-deprecating comedian freely posts topless photos of herself, but it could be because she is on a mini-crusade against Instagram. While Twitter allows nudity, Instagram does not allow female nipples to be shown. Her IG account has been deleted several times because she did not follow the guidelines.
“If a man posts a photo of his nipples, it's OK, but not a woman? Are we in 1825?” Handler wrote in October.
When Kim Kardashian “broke the Internet” in November with her Paper magazine shoot, Instagram allowed for the reality star to post the photo that exposed her famous backside with impunity. Handler posted a photo in the same position, showing off her booty, too. “Can you believe more than 2 ass can fit on the same screen? Guess which one's real. Your move, Instagram,” she wrote in October.
In her next post, she teased she would show even more, following Kardashian's lead, but then pointed out she was just joking. “Don't worry, I would never show my peekachu, 1) because I have a family, and 2) oh yeah ... TALENT. Thanks for making the rules clear, instagram.”
