(JTA) — Former reality TV star Tila Tequila accused Sarah Silverman and the Jews of killing Jesus before saying the comedian was next on a “celebrity sacrifice” list.
Tequila, born Tila Nguyen, was responding on Monday to a fan’s suggestion that a Donald Trump presidency would bring Jesus back to life.
“Jesus will come back too just don’t tell the Jews about it,” Twitter user Kaiser Poopfist I tweeted at Tequila.
The former “A Shot at Love” star wrote back that Silverman and the Jews should be informed.
We should at least tell @SarahKSilverman since her and her (((People))) killed him. So glad I’m not on THAT team! https://t.co/JZ9c003r3h— Tila Tequila (@AngelTilaLove) June 20, 2016
The triple parentheses around “(((People)))” is known as the echo symbol, which is used by white supremacists and anti-Semites to identify Jews online. It was added to the Anti-Defamation League’s hate symbols database earlier this month after it appeared in a publicized anti-Semitic attack on Jewish New York Times editor Jonathan Weisman.
Silverman responded to Tequila’s attack in comedic fashion on Twitter.
You deserve love https://t.co/GxmR2UMupc— Sarah Silverman (@SarahKSilverman) June 20, 2016
As Raw Story reported, Tequila continued her rant by saying she would take vengeance on Silverman.
This is not the first time Tequila has expressed anti-Semitic views. In April, she claimed that she was the reincarnation of Adolf Hitler. Last year she was kicked off of the show “Celebrity Big Brother” for wearing a Nazi uniform.
