    Hard to be compelled to defend her when she literally supports and promotes political correctness.

    No, not her, but this whole witchhunt to eviscerate people's public image by revealing stupid shit from the past is just unfair. If I don't like it when it happens to people I like, it would be hypocritical of me to laud it just because it happens to the 'was never funny' Sarah Silverman. PC has no place in comedy, and stuff like this just shows how uncompromising the industry is even with one of their own kind.

    I don't mind some of Silverman's stuff, mostly older stuff. I don't think it's hypocritical in this case because she's an actual proponent of political correctness, not just someone I dislike etc. She's done multiple interviews essentially saying she supports this exact kind of 'cancel culture' practice.

    Apparently she doesnt support it, despite being PC as fuck.

    https://www.breitbart.com/entertain...verman-fired-from-movie-over-blackface-photo/
    I don't know if she said anything that contradicts this in the past, but this is what she is saying now. I feel like Breitbart would have thrown her to the wolves if she used to be a proponent of cancel culture.

    Im honestly not for it period, left or right.

    Well no fucking shit she's "against it" now after it happened to her lmao but she's been in multiple interviews over the years outright saying she supports it. I'm sure commies love communism until they're up against the wall.

    Here's just a few that immediately pop up in a Youtube search:







    And I'm not for it either, but I still have zero sympathy when it happens to someone who is for it.

    So THE Allen Frances has full blown TDS:

    Even being an eminent psychiatrist is of no protection.

    I fucking hate you for making me watch several videos about Sarah Silverman to see if she really did contradict herself. But she didn't. She just talks about what is appropriate or not in PC culture, and says that modern times call for modern jokes, more or less. There is nothing in those bits about blacklisting people for what they said in the past. Just because she likes being PC does not mean she supports cancel culture, and based on those interviews I bet if she were asked about it she would say it's wrong. I actually wished that you would have been right, but unfortunately your anti-PC blinders are dialed in too high.

    is anyone else bothered by the fact that
    she didn't actually name the movie
    is anyone else thinking that there's a tiny possibility Silverman just made this shit up as a crazy publicity-stunt??

    No because she had already expressed her shame with her blackface skit a year ago, so why would she want to bring it up in shame yet again?

    I don't know, I fucking hate her and wish she would just disappear. I just don't agree with what happened to her. And looking at news searches to find examples of her being hypocritical, she has been in the media before this incident, so apparently something.

    edit: apparently nothing since some show I never heard of was cancelled in January of this year. Makes sense that she would have been cast for a new thing and then denied. I guess it could be a publicity stunt, but I doubt it. She is being PC by keeping the production a secret, so it fits with her self-righteous narrative.

    the studio didn't say "we fired sara silverman"
    it's just sara saying "i got fired" without actually naming the movie
    if the studio came out and said "we did this" then i'd be less likely to believe this is a publicity stunt
    right now i'm still not quite 100% sure sara actually got fired from any movie

    You're being a bit of an pedantic faggot right now, man. Did she say she supports people being "cancelled" over offensive statements/sketches/etc? No, I was wrong to say she said she essentially supports this exact kind of 'cancel culture' practice, but she has stated multiple times her pro-PC position and whether she likes it or not, you can't pick and choose which bits of PC culture affect you. Once you jump on that wagon, you take the whole enchilada.

    It's like you join a gang because you like the communal aspects of it, but then you get shot by another gang and say "well, all the violence sucks." Yeah no shit, but when you get into gang culture that's an inherent part of it, just like censorship is an inherent part of PC culture.

    All I see is Silverman taking a second look at something she supports after it bit her. In the third video I shared, at 1:22 she says she knows she's right that PC-culture isn't ruining comedy, and getting fired for old jokes and punished if you don't "move with the times" isn't somehow completely contradictory to that point? She's in denial and trying to have it both ways.

    Anti-warmongering candidate getting excluded from debate. Good ol DNC at its old ways. Why aren't they supporting a woman?

    You Can Definitely Skip Dave Chappelle's New Netflix Special 'Sticks & Stones'
    The comedian doubles down on misogyny and transphobia in both the special and the hidden bonus scene that follows.

    Dave Chapelle's New Standup Is Offensive in All the Wrong Ways
    The jokes were mean and lazy. They were something I never thought I'd see: Dave Chappelle punching down.

    Sounds like Mr. Chappelle needs to have a sit down with Sarah Silverman and get fucking woke.

    The first article's author said something interesting when she shared her drivel on Twitter also: Who would have thought that transphobic jokes would be the hill that such a smart talented comedian needs to die on?

    "NEEDS TO DIE ON" :err:


    Edit: lmao Michael Rapaport chimed in.
