Sarah Silverman has said she was recently fired from a film after producers unearthed a still of her in 2007 wearing blackface for a comedy sketch. 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.

Comments:

Hollywood leftists love having people blacklisted, except when it happens to them (at which point it's a regrettable mistake, not evidence that they are horrible people). Why is Ralph "Coonman" Northam (D) still governor of the New Dominion?

A bit of advice, Sarah homey - - You should worry more about your black soul - - than any black face you may have worn. You've been a hideous, narcissistic, hateful person all your life. Think about that - - and try to do something positive about it.

Actually, the more I think about her, she should be in the protected class, but evidently, she's not a member in good standing. If I were in her shoes, I would say that it was antisemitism that was behind her firing and file suit.

I personally am sad for Sarah, not about the movie gig, but for how funny and incisive she used to be as a comedian. So many of the funny ones, working in the Hollywood environment and wanting to get ahead, have hitched their wagon to the donkey cart and have gone from funny to pathetic. Doing stand-up in a bell jar with Rob Reiner et al just doesn't carry. She was great in her show and loved her in School of Rock. I know you're funny Sarah, please come back.

Well, what about the governor of VA, Northam? He seems to be skating along with the accused rapist Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax? If anyone should be hoist on petards, it ought to be people who are in authority as lawmakers or enforcers of the Law, not some silly comedian. Silverman was hilarious in an episode of "Monk" several years back. I had no idea who she was at the time, it doesn't matter. She had me in stiches laughing. In any case, the speech police need to be disbanded and dispatched, the practice of employing as a cudgel a speech code as rigid, stultifying and destructive of creativity as in the USSR or any other totalitarian regime must be ended.

The iconic A-10 Thunderbolt II will be flying into the late 2030s thanks to a re-winging project completed by the U.S. Air Force. Air Force Materiel Command said in a press release on Monday that 162 A-10s received new wings thanks to a $1.1 billion project that began in 2011. The contract, awarded to Boeing in 2007, required the creation of new parts for the plane’s fuselage. “At the end of the program, making sure we had all the pieces and parts that we needed to make that happen required a really significant team effort,” said Stephen Zaiser, director of the 571st, Air Force

CNN anchor Chris Cuomo, who was captured on a viral video getting into a profanity-laced exchange with a person who called him “Fredo,” once referred to himself as the hapless “The Godfather” character in a radio interview. Cuomo was interviewed by Curtis Sliwa on his AM 970 radio show in January 2010 about whether his brother Andrew might seek the Democratic nomination for governor. Sliwa said he dubbed the Cuomo family “la Cuomo Nostra.” “There is a group of people—politicos—who always hint they might run, but not necessarily plunge all the way, and they are members of la Cuomo.” “Who am I, then, Fredo?”

Here are a few things I know firsthand about being in jail. First and foremost, you have virtually no control over your life and surroundings. You can’t get so much as an aspirin without authorization. In most jails, you can’t wear a belt, or shoelaces, or keep a razor in your cell. You have no privacy, no sense of dignity, and no rights. And in a well-run jail, high-profile prisoners have virtually no chance of killing themselves. So the alleged suicide of Jeffrey Epstein, the 66-year-old financier with powerful American and foreign friends who was about to stand trial for allegedly sexually abusing dozens of girls, many of them underage,

Those who know her say that it’s possible she is as much of a Houdini as Epstein.

The socialite daughter of the disgraced late media tycoon Robert Maxwell has been accused of recruiting underage girls for the financier Epstein, her benefactor and sometime boyfriend. She has even been described as the ‘madam of the house’ by a former housekeeper at Epstein’s mansion in Palm Beach, Florida. Hitherto, she has always emphatically denied misconduct.
