SARAH SILVERMAN CALLED OUT FOR ‘OFFENSIVE’ JOKES ON SOCIAL MEDIA

Comedian Sarah Silverman is the latest to be taken to task for a tweet she sent out several years ago. Conservative activists dug up her old tweet and are now labeling her a pedophile.

In July of 2009, Silvereman tweeted: "Hey, is it considered molestation if the child makes the first move? I'm gonna need a quick answer on this."

Townhall, a conservative publication, ran a story on the tweet with the headline: "Disney Voice Actress and Comedian Sarah Silverman Also Joked About Molesting Children."

Last year, Silverman was asked by a fan about the tweet, and she responded: "That's ok doll. Comedy is subjective. I thought it was a funny/dumb tweet 8 years ago when I posted it."

On Thursday, she posted about the controversy, tweeting: "Some very odd people R saying I'm a pedo, re: a joke from a time not that long ago when hard absurd jokes by comedians were acknowledged for what they were -- jokes -- not a disengenuous national threat to people fake-clutching their pearls (whilst ranting the country's too PC)."
