Outrage: Sarah Silverman Tweets Support for Joan Rivers: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Sarah Silverman payed respects to ailing Fashion Police host Joan Rivers the only way she knows how -- with a joke.


`We have a gig in 2 weeks and I`m not doing it without you. YOU`RE BEING RIDICULOUS @Joan Rivers,` the 43-year-old comedian tweeted Sunday.

Silverman`s post came a day after 81-year-old Rivers was put on life support at Mount Sinai hospital in New York following her cardiac arrest on Thursday."


Sarah Silverman used to be my favorite female comic, simply because she`s the only funny female comic.

Stand-up comedy is a man`s world; female comics don`t have the balls to play the man`s game. A mean spirit is ill-suited for any woman, especially a female comic, that`s why Joan Rivers is universally despised.

But Silverman is working my last nerve, her penchant for showing off her cleavage is unforgiveable, sexy and funny do not mix. A female comic would be well-advised to wear frumpy clothes on and off stage, period!

Silverman`s tweet isn`t expressing solidarity and support for a female colleague; it reveals she`s made common cause with the devil.
