Comedian Sarah Silverman delved into serious territory when she appeared to call for the military overthrow of President Donald Trump in a tweet. Then early Friday she seemed to offer a conciliatory message, writing that fear can even move peace lovers to incite violence.
Silverman drew attention Wednesday night with this missive in a retweet of a post listing activity around the Trump administration.
Silverman’s tweet, whether written in jest or not, caused a stir on her account and in some media outlets.
But early Friday the comedian appeared to soften her stance.
Silverman originally backed Bernie Sanders in the presidential race, then called for unity behind Hillary Clinton at the Democratic National Convention.
The Huffington Post reached out to Silverman and a rep early Friday for comment.
