Social justice caught up to Sarah Silverman 

Sarah Silverman has finally been cancelled (well, sort of). One of the riskiest and funniest comedians of the 90s and 2000s had recently pivoted to become a woke scold in a desperate attempt to save her career. Or maybe she really believed it. Either way, it seemed to be working, until it wasn’t.

This week it was revealed that Silverman was fired from a major movie project because of her previous work, namely, an anti-racist sketch that she performed in blackface. Of the sketch, she told GQ: “That was such liberal-bubble stuff, where I actually thought it was dealing with racism by using racism. I don’t get joy in that anymore. It makes me feel yucky.” It made her employers feel yucky, too.
