Sarah Silverman has never exactly shied away from the outrageous, whether in her comedy or on Twitter. But when she stood up for a teen activist last week, the backlash was intense, even for her.

On Feb. 15, Silverman tweeted out a link to an Amnesty International petition to free 16 -year-old Ahed Tamimi accompanied with the following message: “Jews have to stand up EVEN when — ESPECIALLY when — the wrongdoing is BY Jews/ the Israeli government.”
