The former presenter of the late-talk show said after day one about filming her new documentary Hello Privilege. It's me, Chelsea, she attended an open mic beatnik evening at the University of Southern California, where she was so impressed by a black singer that she hugged her and hit her ass.

But what the 44-year-old thought was a sign of affection changed into a very big lesson about personal boundaries.

"I had to follow Netflix sexual harassment training directly from the gate," Handler said on Jimmy Kimmel Live Monday night.

& # 39; This black woman was singing this great song and I was behind her. When she got up, I gave her a hug to say great work and slapped her back a little, & Handler explained. & # 39; That's my sign of affection … It's not sexual insult because I'm straight – I thought. & # 39;

The next day, Netflix called the comedian to say that the woman was very offended by Handler's blow and that she would be forced to follow sexual harassment.

Handler was initially defensive, but after talking to the woman, she realized she was wrong.

& # 39; They said, "This girl was very upset. The woman you touched." I didn't even remember. And immediately I became defensive. I was like: "Oh no. I'm not attacking her!" And they were like, "That's not the problem."

Handler then spoke with the woman on the phone.

& # 39; When I heard how it was received instead of my intention, it was a big wake-up call. It's not about how you mean it, it's about how that person understands it. So that was the first lesson at the gate, & Handler said Monday evening

In a comedic way, Handler joked with Netflix executives and asked if they & # 39; white people & # 39; was allowed to touch or that it & # 39; just a black thing & # 39; used to be.

Netflix didn't find her joke that funny.

& # 39; They were like: "Stop touching people at all! Don't do that," she said.

Kimmel then asked if the sensitivity training was effective. Handler agreed that it said: & # 39; you must know the rules & # 39;

& # 39; It is very difficult for me because I am a very affectionate person. I do inappropriate things. I am lucky that I don't have a talk show in this era, because I would have lost it. Because I grab people by the breasts I'm friendly with, & Handler added.
