For those who are students of comedian Sarah Silverman’s take-no-prisoners humor, this one seems almost tame.

She’s been trending on social media ever since.
One critic scolded on Twitter: “Have some respect.”

Silverman has hit out at Christmas in the past, including in the video,
And at Jesus, specifically with 2005’s film, “Jesus is Magic.”
