Something tells us Wanda Sykes isn't tuning in to this season of The Bachelorette. 

ET's Kevin Frazier spoke with Sykes at the "Netflix Is a Joke" FYSEE event in Los Angeles on Saturday, where she opened up about her upcoming Netflix standup special -- and her criticism of the Bachelor franchise. 

"It's just annoying and also promotes bad behavior and it just makes women look stupid," she said of the ABC dating series. "It does!" 

"All these women after all this, just one sorry dude -- you know, really? Come on!" Sykes added. "I've just had enough of the silliness."

Sykes' special, Not Normal, will premiere later his month -- and there's nothing she wishes she didn't say on stage. 

"Not at all," she said when asked if she wishes she held back. "I mean, it wasn't too far for me. Some people might go, 'Oh, that's too far. But I love living in that space. I love living out there."

And the comedian, 55, couldn't be more ready for audiences to finally see it. 

"It means a lot. It's very exciting to know that more people are gonna see it [because it's on Netflix]... Millions and millions of people and translated in I don't know how many different languages. The only downside is that my French in-laws are now gonna find out what I'm saying about them, so we'll see how that goes," she joked. 

"I'm a grown-a** woman. I'm not clearing anything. I'm doing my jokes and they just deal with it. That's the way it goes," she cracked. "[But] it's not like I'm mean-spirited. So I'm telling the truth... they do some funny stuff."

Wanda Sykes: Not Normal will be available to stream on Netflix starting May 21.
