Comedian Sarah Silverman said she holds herself accountable for wearing blackface, talking about the incident on The Bill Simmons Podcast.

Silverman said she recently lost a small role in a movie the night before she went to film after someone saw a photo of her in blackface from a 2007 episode of her Comedy Central series, “The Sarah Silverman Program.”

The 48-year-old brought up the incident during a discussion on “cancel culture,” a social media phenomenon that takes outrage and transforms it into a large-scale rejection of a celebrity’s place in pop culture.
