In 2010, Sarah Silverman posted a photo of herself on Twitter in blackface with the caption, “I’m having minstrel cramps.” Silverman appeared to be referring to minstrel shows, a form of entertainment in the 19th century when white people performed in black face.

In October 2007, the comedian also painted her face black for an episode of The Sarah Silverman Program. In the three minute clip titled Black Face Rally, Sarah tells a crowd of other people in black face that she has gone Black and is never going back.
