Sarah Silverman: I Was Fired From a Movie Job After a Picture of Me in Blackface from My 2007 Comedy Central Show Surfaced

Good, let them eat their own until they've had their fill.

Guesting on The Bill Simmons Podcast, Silverman said that she was let go the day before shooting on her scenes was due to start because of the photo, taken on the set of The Sarah Silverman Show.

"I recently was going to do a movie, a sweet part," she said, "then, at 11pm the night before, they fired me because they saw a picture of me in blackface from that episode."

...

Silverman did not name the film but discussed "cancel culture" with Simmons, saying that the current climate had left her feeling fearful. "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 dubs 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.'"

Meanwhile, the Washington Post runs another editorial suggesting it's time to #Cancel the First Amendement:



Prosecute... white supremacy? White supremacy is a crime that can be prosecuted?

I know white supremacist assaults are a crime, as are white supremacist terroristic threats or white supremacist killings.

But white supremacy itself should be prosecuted, suggests the Washington Post? Just the thought itself?

And we should end free expression to make that less difficult?

So: We're going to need to cancel the First Amendment to make it easier to prosecute thoughtcrimes.

That does track, I admit.
