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.

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

  • Bryan Ellis

    Honestly I have to agree with Sarah Silverman on this one.
    Sorry guys!

  • jason

    Sarah Silverman is a tool. Nuff said.

  • T-in-Cali

    i agree with SS
    i don’t walk into a redneck bar expecting intelligent conversation

    consider the source material

  • Matthiew

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

  • Gary B.

    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.
