Now this is funny!
Comedian, and former SNL alum, Sarah Silverman is back in the headlines for using a podcast appearance to personally apologize to Paris Hilton for a joke she made at her expense at the MTV Video Music Awards over a decade ago.
Let me set the scene for you. The year was 2007, and Paris Hilton, star of the hit sex tape “1 Night in Paris,” was about to go to prison that night for violating her probation, but first she decided to make an appearance at the MTV award ceremony because she’s Paris Hilton and why the hell not?!
Sarah Silverman makes a joke about Paris, dicks and jail, because that’s what comedians do, and now 14 years later she is laden with remorse, publicly begging for forgiveness saying, “My understanding of humanity through the lens of my work had not yet emerged. And I am so sorry I hurt you.”
Personally, I never found Sarah Silverman all that funny until now. I mean, this is just hilarious! Can you imagine a comedian apologizing for a joke made at someone’s expense? That’s like a painter saying he’s sorry for putting paint on your walls. It’s insane.
Sarah Silverman isn’t the only comedian apologizing to other celebrities for being insensitive. A little while back Amy Schumer apologized for an Instagram post mocking Hilaria Baldwin. She retracted the post, issued an apology, and lost my respect forever.
If I had to guess, these comedians are now reaping what they have sewed, and that’s karma for you, baby. They hated Trump, rallied for cancelling people, and now the table has turned to scrutinize them, and I couldn’t be happier.
I think the legendary comedian George Carlin said it best when he declared, “I think it’s the duty of the comedian to find out where the line is drawn and cross it deliberately.” I can only imagine which one of his famous “7 dirty words” he would use to describe this bizarre turn of events. Funny shit. #truthbomber
