Comedienne Sarah Silverman has defended her joke about Britney Spears’ kids – insisting she doesn’t know what the fuss is all about.
Acid tongued Silverman hosted the MTV Video Music Awards recently – and her withering put downs were centred on troubled singer Britney Spears.
Her most controversial remark was calling the pop star’s kids Sean Preston, two, and Jayden James, one, the “most adorable mistakes you will ever see”.
However, Silverman is stunned anyone was offended by the remark.
“The joke that everyone was upset about – me calling the kids ‘adorable mistakes’ – was the most innocuous joke,” she says. “It never occurred to me that would be deemed hurtful or over the line. I don’t want to get into feuds with girls half my age. I’m in it to be funny and not for the drama. It’s embarrassing.”
