And This Is All You Need To Know About Sarah Silverman

From The Independant:

Silverman has been booed off stage for ridiculing Martin Luther King. She has also been condemned by Guy Aoki, the head of an Asian watchdog group, for telling a gag that culminated in the word "ch**k" on Late Night with Conan O'Brien. Silverman's response was to incorporate the episode into her stand-up. "[Aoki] put my name in all the papers calling me a racist and it hurt," she confessed. "As a member of the Jewish community, I was really concerned we were losing control of the media. What kind of a world do we live in where a totally cute white girl can't say 'ch**k' on network television?"
Just for the record I did see her movie Jesus Is Magic before I made my final opinion of her years back - and yeah - it was a bad as I thought it was going to be.
