The Biggest 'Red Table Talk' Revelations

Handler admits her privilege allowed her to shoplift, but that's not the story that got a shocked reaction from Jada's mom.

Appearing on "Red Table Talk," guest Chelsea Handler prefaced one personal tale by saying, "You're not gonna like this" -- and she was right!

The comedian will be a guest on Monday's new episode of the show and a pair of preview clips released Friday show her coming to terms with her own white privilege. It's a topic she also tackled in her latest Netflix documentary, "Hello Privilege. It's Me, Chelsea," which dropped earlier this month.

Speaking with Jada Pinkett Smith and mom Adrienne Banfield Norris, Handler shared her problematic tale with the two women because, for her, it was "a learning point."

"This Black woman was standing up singing a song and I went up to her and said, 'Oh my god that was beautiful,' and I slapped her on the butt," said Handler. Both Jada and her mother reacted with expressions of horror.

"I'm shocked and appalled right now," exclaimed Adrienne. "And so was she," added Handler, "She said, 'Black women have been defined by their hair and their asses for ages. You have no right to touch my body.'"

Handler's behavior, said Norris, was "just such classic white privilege right there."

In another preview clip, Handler continued to talk about what she could get away with as a white woman that many POC could not -- including shoplifting.

"Going into the grocery store as a white person is totally different than going into the grocery store as a Black person," she explained. "No one's looking at you to screw up, no one's looking at you to take something, no one suspects anything."

"Do you know how many times I've walked out of grocery stores because the line was too long and I didn't feel like waiting?" she added. "Talk about entitlement and privilege. I just knew I wouldn't get caught because I was like, this is annoying I'm just gonna take it."

That got a "Wow" out of Jada.

"I have done things like that in my life and I had to come to terms with A, that I had done that, because I didn't think it was a big deal until I really looked at it and it's like, 'That is a bad thing. What are you doing, you can't do stuff like that!"

Handler's full episode of "Red Table Talk" drops Monday on Facebook Watch.
