Sarah Silverman FIRED over black face photo

Sarah Silverman, who performed with a ‘black face’ back in 2007, has just lost a job over it:

NY POST – Sarah Silverman revealed that she was recently fired from a movie over an old photo of her in blackface.

She said the photo, which was snapped on the set of “The Sarah Silverman Show” in 2007, recently resurfaced and caught the eye of the film’s producers.

“I recently was going to do a movie, a sweet part,” she said on “The Bill Simmons Podcast.” “Then, at 11 p.m. the night before, they fired me because they saw a picture of me in blackface from that episode.

“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.”

Silverman wouldn’t name the movie.

Well I guess there isn’t a complete double standard about ‘everything’ on the left.

Silverman now regrets the black face skit which she once thought was awesome:

In the sketch, Silverman’s character wore dark face paint to see whether it is more difficult to be black or Jewish.

“I look like the beautiful Queen Latifah,” she said in the sketch before telling the congregation at an African-American church, “I’m black today.”

On the podcast, the comedian, 48, also blasted “cancel culture” and said it has left her feeling scared because no one is given a second chance.

“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.’”

Silverman has long spoken out against the sketch, which she said at first was praised and helped her career. She maintains she regrets it.

The culture has been shaming black faced photos for quite a while now…well most of them. Jimmy Kimmel’s black face comedy skit has seemed not to hurt his career very much. Maybe Silverman can get her own talk show on ABC too?

  1. Okay, she’s a liberal, I get it. But her “blackface” was a sketch obviously making fun of the concept for being racist. Kind of funny. Not her best work. But not racist.

    1. You know that, I know that and I’d hazard a guess a whole lot of others know that. Doesn’t matter to liberals and like thinking types.

  2. The French revolutionaries who beheaded all the aristocrats ended up being beheaded themselves.

    Might want to learn history, left-tards. It’s a painful lesson if you don’t…..

    1. I recently went to the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum in Phnom Penh which is located at a school the Khmer Rouge converted into a political prison/torture center. In the early days of the KR center, they took pics of all the guards (mostly 16-25, some as young as 13). Mostly they were illiterates from rural areas who would easily believe anything they were told. They also had pictures of the victims/prisoners.

      Many of the guards in 1975 were later photographed as prisoners by 1978. IIRC, there were only 23 survivors of Tuol Sleng. None of the survivors were former guards.

  3. Boo hoo hoo hoo!!! Luv them eating their own, and they look around, saying it’s ok I’m one of you guys. Bahsha

  4. This is wrong. I despise Sarah Silverman, but this woke-punishment garbage for decades old actions is nonsense.

    1. Until all those accused stand up for themselves, it’s going to continue. Sounds like she rolled over and took the woke punishment willingly.

      1. They’re worried about how they look. It was the same in the 60’s. Full of brave nonconformist conformist.

  5. But it’s the culture you and your ilk have created, Ms. Silverman. You did this. You wanted to use every dirty, deceptive thing you could find against people who disagree with your politics. Well, it’s come to bite you on the butt. But you don’t even have the guts to say they’re wrong for firing you or complain loudly because you know what the result would be.

  6. She did this 12 years ago, when the left no doubt applauded her “humor,” and now the hypocrites fire her for something the democrats in entertainment started decades ago? Meh…same old games. What difference will it make? None whatsoever.

  7. I find it rather hilarious that the Left (where everything and anything goes) is acting so self-righteous against one of their biggest proponents.

    You sow intolerance, you reap intolerance.

    Edit: I also find it sad that Sarah – who I find to be attractive – behaves in such a way that I find her to be disgusting. Good looks are destroyed by filthy behavior.

  8. Sarah Silverman has been a grotesque example of a comedienne. She really outdid herself when she pushed out her stomach pretending to be pregnant saying that she had “scheduled her aborsh” as a hit to pro life advocates. She has always pushed the envelope to the grotesque and a slap in the face to the conservative right, not really even funny. So for this to come back to bite her in the butt doesn’t make me feel bad at all. To me, she’s not so much a comedienne as a classless shock jock trying to score political points on the left. Sorry, not sorry.

    1. I’m in total agreement that I never got her “popularity”. Like that other one, I cannot even remember her name.

      Oh, wait, I think it is Bernhardt. She played in that horrible movie that DeNiro and Jerry Lewis did together. I think that she and Madonna had a thing going for a while. They are not funny in the least, they are crass, crude and pretty disgusting and I’m talking about when they aren’t doing their act.

  9. BWAHAHAHA! How does it feel, Sarah, hmm? I’m so sick of these idiots getting off Scot free with their BS. And doubly angry about my governor in Virginia, who also got away with it. Bit if it were a Republican? Whoooboy, it would go nuclear.

  10. I think this is so stupid…firing people over crap like this. Sure, there’s a problem with it today and if you do it tomorrow then you’ll face the consequences. But going back years ago before it was even a noted problem is just flat out ridiculous.

    It is funny how PC comes back to bite rabid liberals in the a** though.

      1. Not with PC dominating the nation. The left is so fragile they’re going to ban conservatism before it’s all over because it huwts their wittle feewings.

  11. As I often tell my liberal friends, you can never be a good enough liberal. You’ll either cross a line or they’ll cross it for you by changing the standard or going far enough even you think it’s depraved (the oncoming battle against pedophilia will create a great schism in the left).

    Meanwhile, in my “archaic” and “puritan” faith, we actually believe in salvation. We actually believe your shortcomings can be atoned for through the grace of God. Their god of social justice warrior enlightenment is only a god of destruction. They will worship themselves while their entire civilization circles the drain.

  12. A gig. She lost a gig. She probably has a couple of others going on, and will have plenty more. While I don’t support the action in principle, I have no tears here for her.

  13. Sung to “Another one bites the dust” by Queen:

    Sarah thought she could stop the chase,
    A Jewish girl, with a dream,
    She’s a liberal comic who painted her face,
    black paint a bright idea it seemed.

    Are you ready? Are you ready for this dope?
    A white girl wearing blackface!
    Are you hanging, on the edge of a rope
    She’s now a liberal disgrace!

    Ha.ha.ha. Another lib bites the dust!
    Ha.ha.ha. Another lib bites the dust!
    Hey. The libs cull their own,
    Another lib bites the dust!

    Yayyayyayyay. Another lib bites the dust!

    1. Verse 2:

      Now your lying in the bed you made,
      And you know damn well your mad,
      No more jokes on Funny or Die,
      About sleeping with your dad

      Are you ready? Are you ready to cry?
      How long can you shed your tears
      Me and others at TRS,
      Will be toasting with some beers.

      Ooooooh yeah.

      Ha. ha. ha. Another one bites the dust.
      Ha. ha. ha. Another one bites the dust.
      And another lib gone, another lib gone,
      Another one bites the dust.
      Hey, better learn to code.
      Another one bites the dust.

  14. There must not be a thing wrong with wearing black face. Why? It is good enough for antifa and everybody knows Demoncrats and their sycophant fake news syndicate absolutely LOVE the fascist antifa cowards. That makes all Demoncrats racists and cowards as well.

  15. Well, a failed comedienne was fired…. meanwhile, Governor Northam is still employed.

  16. So effing ridiculous. When I was young at a masquerade dance, I dressed up as an Indian, face painted like on the warpath & an Indian friend dressed as Daniel Boone. Not one of us cared, nor did our friends. Nothing was done for malicious reasons, we did it for fun. Today I would be fired/booted out of any liberal run organization because of this.

    The BS interpretation of racism, from things we did years ago is just that…BS.

    1. I am thankful that no on was running around with cameras when I was young.

  17. I love it when one of these liberal Hollywood bi*ches get fired from anything. Call it schadenfreude, but I still love it.
