Sarah Silverman cited many of these same examples in her recent podcast, calling out ''Jewface'' in Hollywood.
The comic's had her own reckoning about ethnic issues, admitting: ''There are jokes I made 15 years ago I would absolutely not make today.''
In 2007, she appeared in blackface for a sketch on her Comedy Central show, which she now disavows and is ''horrified'' by.
Silverman might've first made my radar when she was on Conan O'Brien's late-night show in 2001. She joked about trying to avoid jury duty: “My friend is like, ‘Why don’t you write something inappropriate on the form like ‘I hate Chinks,’ ” Silverman said. But, because she didn’t want people to think she was racist, she joked, “I just filled out the form and I wrote ‘I love Chinks’ — and who doesn’t?”
