So Sarah Silverman Expected Vince Vaughn’s Character To Say Homophobic Crap?

Pick your battles, I’d say. Maybe that’s the one you want to pick, but I don’t know. I didn’t really get passionate about it. I just kinda went, ‘Eh.’ You know, it’s like when an old person is racist, or Jerry Lewis says that women aren’t funny. It’s like, ‘Who cares? It’s adorable.

—Sarah Silverman, brushing off the anger aimed at Vince Vaughn’s The Dilemma, because hey, comedians should be able to pick on anything [NY Mag]

      I mean, it IS a fucking Vince Vaughn movie. Guess I wouldn’t expect anything less.

      Well, she did equate his gay “joke” with racism and sexism. That’s something.

      I agree with Sarah here – there are far better battles to go after than this one. Sarah Silverman RULES!

      (I’m glad they disabled voting as I know I’d get plenty positives and negatives – she’s pretty polarizing)

      Oh ferchrissakes, she is hardly making the point comedians should be able to pick on gays — she’s trashing these sorts of movies and comedians as ignorant and unfunny.

      my grandmother is very very racist. I admit that my reaction to this is a bit like sarah’s. It’s easier for me to laugh at bigots than to cry because of them.
