Sarah Silverman tweets that Jesus was gender fluid – suffers backlash

Sarah Silverman found out on Christmas Day that making a joke about Jesus might make a lot of people really mad.

The comic and actress posted a tweet on 25 December to her 7.5 million followers which read: MERRY CHRISTMAS! Jesus was gender fluid! It was followed by five hearts.

To many who saw the tweet, it was no joke.

Tweeted Thomas Brecheisen: @SarahKSilverman Christians “turn the other cheek.”Easy to make “jokes” about their religion.Take a stab at Islam and Mohammed, THAT’S edgy.

Another tweets with the handle @jaxnmelody wrote: @SarahKSilverman Jesus was about as Gender fluid as YOU are funny…#idiot

But those were mild in comparison Steve Collier (@not_Collier) who wrote: ‘Unfortunately, @SarahKSilverman, you are a real piece of shit. Take your hate and use it like a dido. On your dad.’

Silverman ignored most of the tweets but did take the time to respond to Collier with this message: Oh sweetie. You deserve love. Please know that.
