According to the sourcelink, Sarah Silverman, who you may know from such things as being one of the most vile and unfunny comedians ever, was on a podcast recently where she revealed that she was fired from a movie because of an old sketch she did back in 2007 in blackface.
But let’s back up a moment and just remind you of the comedy Sarah Silverman does:
And there was this:
Also, she lies. Case in point.
In short, she’s awful.
Anyway, she said on the Bill Simmons Podcast that she was supposed to have a “sweet part” in a movie (that she wouldn’t name), but that on the night before, she was fired because they saw a photo of her in blackface from the 2007 sketch.
“I didn’t fight it,” she continued. “They hired someone else who is wonderful but who has never stuck their neck out. It was so disheartening. It just made me real, real sad because I really kind of devoted my life to making it right.”
She went on to bemoan the current “cancel culture” we live in, lamenting how scary it is that no one is given second chances any longer.
“I think it’s really scary and it’s a very odd thing that it’s invaded the left primarily and the right will mimic it,” adding that she calls it “righteousness porn.”
“It’s like, if you’re not on board, if you say the wrong thing, if you had a tweet once, everyone is, like, throwing the first stone,” she continued. “It’s so odd. It’s a perversion. It’s really, ‘Look how righteous I am and now I’m going to press refresh all day long to see how many likes I get in my righteousness.’”
She’s not wrong about this kind of culture having invaded the left – it’s just that she’s missing the part about how the left CREATED it. If the right mimics it, it’ll be because we’re demanding equality with the stupid standards the left has insisted upon.
Sarah has said for a long time now that she regrets doing the blackface sketch, claiming that now it makes her feel “yucky” and she insists she’s “not that person anymore.”
Here’s the thing. It’s not the right side of the political aisle who’d be giving her a hard time about this 12 years later. It’s HER side. It’s her side of the aisle who thinks Brett Kavanaugh’s yearbook should have been held as Actual Evidence against confirming him to the Supreme Court. It’s HER side who thinks that tweets posted by someone when they were 16 should be held against them in their 20s. Outrage culture was created, stirred up, and perfected by the left.
So I guess she’s gonna have to deal with the fact that when the consequences affect her and other folks on her side of the aisle, that THEY MADE THAT BED.
Maybe I’ll believe Sarah Silverman when she sticks up for a CONSERVATIVE who’s been a victim of “cancel culture.” Y’all tell me – has she?
