Paris Hilton Responds to Sarah Silverman's Apology For Joking About Her Jail Time

Paris Hilton is accepting Sarah Silverman‘s apology.

In case you missed it, Paris reflected on jokes the comedian had made about her 45-day jail sentence at the 2007 MTV Movie Awards during an interview with her sister Nicky Hilton on her podcast This is Paris earlier this week, calling the performance “cruel and mean.”

Sarah apologized for the comments on her own podcast.

“The crowd went bananas, and while I was thrilled at the success of my monologue, I remember spotting her in the audience, I really do, and I remember seeing that look on her face and my heart sank. There was a person under there. A couple days later I wrote her a letter apologizing, felt awful and I never heard back, I certainly wouldn’t expect to anyways,” Sarah said.

Paris addressed Sarah‘s apology in an impromptu episode of This is Paris on Thursday (March 4) and thanked her for taking the time to reflect on the jokes.

“I was just shocked when I read [an article about the apology] at first and pleasantly surprised,” Paris said. “And then I went and listened to her podcast, and she basically made like an eight and a half minute apology to me.”

“She was so genuine and so sweet and it really moved me. I was emotional hearing it,” she continued. “And I could tell that she really did mean what she said when she was apologizing.”

Paris ultimately accepted the apology and told Sarah, “Thank you. I really, really appreciate you doing that. I know it’s difficult for anyone to apologize, and for someone to do that really means a lot.”

Paris also recently spoke out about feeling “humiliated” during an interview with David Letterman.
