Jerry Lewis still doesn’t get it

We’re hesitant even to dignify Lewis’s comments by posting about them, but since Sarah’s name was tied to the question, and we do try to be “the source for all things Sarah,”…

As reported in Huffington Post, “Asked Thursday [May 20] if he had changed his mind at all because of performers like Melissa McCarthy and Sarah Silverman, the 87-year-old Lewis said of women performing broad comedy: ‘I can’t see women doing that. It bothers me.’ ‘I cannot sit and watch a lady diminish her qualities to the lowest common denominator,’ he said. ‘I just can’t do that.'”

Lewis is well known for previous comments claiming females are not funny, but his rationale this time is obtuse.

Sarah’s subsequent rejoinder (via Twitter May 24) was both funny and accurate: “Caring what Jerry Lewis thinks about women comics is like caring that grandpa doesn’t like all the loud music today.”
