Sarah Silverman Explains ‘Jew Hair’ To The Masses

Jews are well familiar with the anti-Semitic myths that can be traced back to medieval Europe. Jews were often portrayed in medieval literature as “satanic consorts,” enemies of Christianity whose outsides often resembled their purported insides.

Today, the knowledge that Jews do not, in fact, possess “cloven hooves and tails” is widespread. But just in case someone out there isn’t quite sure, Sarah Silverman is here to further dispel the myth.

The comedian took to Twitter, as she does, to explain that it’s not horns! It’s just Jew hair!

At least one person was quick to confirm that, yes, in fact, it’s not horns, it’s just Jew hair.

The tweet also sparked a lot of ancestral reconsideration.

Maybe 23andMe should hire Silverman as a celebrity spokesperson.
