I’d say stick to comedy but you weren’t funny enough to avoid cancellation of your Netflix show. Stay away from politics — no reason to suck at two things. https://t.co/TWaIdU0d71— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) August 28, 2018
Last year, Handler said she wouldn’t return for another season of her eponymous Netflix talk show. Handler, 43, said in a statement last October that Trump’s election “galvanized” her, and that she would devote more of her time to political organizing and activism.
A fierce critic of Trump, Handler said at the time she would work with Netflix on a documentary "where I'll engage with people I don't talk with enough — people of different ethnicities, religions and political philosophies."
It’s not the first time Trump Jr. and Handler have tangled on social media.
In March 2017, he blasted her for a misspelling in what he called a “sick tweet” that was “targeted at our family.”

I guess one of @realDonaldTrump's sons is expecting a new baby. Just what we need. Another person with those jeans. Let's hope for a girl.— Chelsea Handler (@chelseahandler) March 20, 2017
Trump Jr. also took a swipe at Handler on Tuesday for saying in 2016 that she would leave the country if Trump was elected president.
“I did buy a house in another country just in case. So all these people that threaten to leave the country and then don’t — I actually will leave that country,” Handler said in an interview.
Hey Chelsea, now that your show is canceled it’s not too late to make good on your promise. Really no excuse for you to stay anymore.— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) August 28, 2018
