Sarah Silverman Fired from Movie over Blackface Photo
Trump-hating left wing actress and comedian Sarah Silverman is getting a taste of her own medicine. She told The Bill Simmons Podcast last week that she lost a role in a movie — which she did not name — after producers discovered a photo of her donning blackface for a sketch on The Sarah Silverman Program.
She eventually expressed remorse over the skit and although falling short of returning any money or distributing reparations of any sort – Silverman claims she’s been trying to make up for it. “It was so disheartening. It just made me real, real sad, because I really kind of devoted my life to making it right.”
Silverman said she was disappointed in the executives’ decisions to fire her from the production, but she understood
“I recently was going to do a movie, a sweet part, then at 11 p.m. the night before, they fired me because they saw a picture of me in blackface from that episode,” she admitted. “I didn’t fight it.”
Silverman has expressed regret for the sketch, telling GQ last year that “it makes me feel yucky” and that she is “not that person anymore.”
The Wreck-It Ralph star also said it was “totally racist out of context.”
The clips from Silverman’s show in their context were a “Trading Spaces” parody of sorts where Silverman wore blackface as apart of a facetious attempt to understand the racial discrimination against African-Americans, after she said to a black waiter that she carried a heavier burden being Jewish.
Before former President Barack Hussein Obama rose to power and ushered in the woke era, this type of edgy humor was considered permissible. Now, it’s holding back Silverman’s career. She also revealed her concerns over outrage culture and what it is doing to comedy.
“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,” the comedienne-actress said, calling the movement “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 explained. “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.'”
Silverman said it’s often difficult to look at the history of comedy through the lens of political correctness, noting that accountability is paramount in moving forward from such times. Actor, rapper, and TV host Nick Cannon called out Silverman earlier this year for her past use of blackface.
Silverman’s politics are as liberal as they come. She regularly joins the outrage mob against President Donald Trump as frequently as anyone, getting off on her own “righteousness” against the President and his supporters who she hates so much.
No point in explaining how mind blowingly stupid this tweet is so I’m just gonna go with FUCK YOU, and also add that you are a smelly penis hole with balls that touch water. Eat shit, you greedy twat. https://t.co/cqUQtHWtlW

Silverman is another ironic victim of the leftist witch-hunting culture she helped to create and continues to perpetuate.
Dogwhistle reminder that these words used by our openly Nationalist President are winks to the alt right:
Soros = The Jews
Nationalist =white Nationalist

“It’s OK to go, ‘Wow, look at this back then,'” she said. “That was so f***ed up looking at it in the light of today of what we know,’ but to hold that person accountable if they’ve changed with the times, like for me … I held myself accountable. I can’t erase that I did that, but I can only be changed forever and do what I can to make it right for the rest of my life.”
