Sarah Silverman is standing up for the concept of art. And the pervasive use of a certain racial slur. Allow us to explain...

With Spike Lee criticizing director Quentin Tarantino for the abundance of N-Word utterances in Django Unchained (over 110, according to unofficial counts), the female comedian is coming out in defense of the film and wondering:

"Doesn't it take place like during slavery? Wouldn't it be odd if they didn't have that horrific word in it?"

Silverman tells TMZ that she likes Lee, but...

"[Spike's] got a lot of mishegas with a lot of art. I think you can't really tell art what to do."

Movie goers didn't seem to have any misgivings about the film, as Django Unchained broke box office records for an R-rated movie on Christmas day.

Have you seen it? What do you think of its N-Word use? It is...

Known for her dirty mouth and extreme views, has Sarah Silverman finally gone too far? Some may believe so.

The comedian sent out a Tweet over the weekend that included two photos and a caption. In the first image, she's joined by boyfriend Alec Sulkin and a puffed out belly. In the second, her stomach has returned to its regular size and it's accompanied by the words:

“Got a quickie aborsh in cas R v W gets overturned.”

Silverman posted the Tweet in response to Mitt Romney becoming the presumptive Republican nominee for President. He referred to Roe vs. Wade last January as "one of the darkest moments in Supreme Court history."

What do you think of Silverman's actions? Funny and harmless? Or totally wrong and inappropriate? Did she cross a line?
