Sarah Silverman: 'Offensive' Shows Like 'Bachelor' Should Carry Warning: [ send to a friend ]
Sarah Silverman may walk the line with her jokes, but the comedian says that she finds shows like 'The Bachelor' even more offensive.
"I'll tell you what's offensive about these shows that are on ABC during prime time," Silverman said in a recent interview.
"Twenty-five women in JC Penney prom dresses, fully grown, going, 'He took us to a castle!' No he didn't. Producers procured a castle... And there's 25 of you—that's how special you aren't!"
Silverman says what really concerns her is not the women who choose to compete in it or those that watch it, but the impressionable young girls that may come across it.
"I think, 'Wow, some young girl is watching this, and there should be a warning saying this is not acceptable behavior.'"
"The biggest thing that a woman should realize is that there is not just one slot for a woman in any given thing."
"I think that's something that society, men and women both, have enforced. It's in the ether that one woman's success can only come at another woman's failure."
