Chelsea Handler Goes Topless For Middle East Peace

So, Chelsea Handler went topless again.

This time though, it was all in the name of peace. Handler is currently in Israel to help raise funds to the Tal Center for Integrative Oncology the Sheba Medical Center. Apparently, the combination of desert, sunset and camel gave her the sudden urge to disrobe.

“A Muslim allowed a topless Jew to sit on his camel,” the caption reads. “And we say we can’t live side by side? I say we try and we can and we will. And, You don’t even have to be topless. L’chaim”

In October, Handler posted a similar photo to Instagram, mocking a picture of Russian president Vladimir Putin bare-chested on horseback. That caption read: “Anything a man can do, a woman has the right to do better. #kremlin”
