Sarah Silverman’s dad doesn’t like JAPs



Donald Silverman on HuffPost Live

Thanks to the cultural gem that is “Princesses: Long Island,” lately the term “JAP” has been bandied around with a vigor that hasn’t been seen since the lavish bat mitzvah and nose job-filled days of our adolescence.

If you’re not happy about this development, you’re not alone. Donald Silverman, father of JAC (Jewish American Comedian) Sarah Silverman, finds it infuriating that anyone would proudly own a label that implies they are materialistic and shallow.

In fact, anyone who does this is “being an asshole,” he told HuffPost Live.

While Silverman’s four daughters and five grandchildren “don’t wear jewelry or drive new cars,” we don’t doubt Silverman’s expertise in this area. He was skyped into the interview from Boca Raton, after all.
