Sarah Silverman says she lost film role for wearing blackface in 2007 episode of her show'I can’t erase that I did that, but I can only be changed forever and do what I can to make it right for the rest of my life.' Chickens are coming home to roost 'I built a mousetrap. I then got caught in the mousetrap. Now I wish mousetraps didn't exist.'
