If you were watching “Dateline” on NBC, last night, from the 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Eastern, you likely saw a Public Service Announcement from “My Name is Earl” co-star Jaime Pressly preaching against hate.
In the ad–brought to you by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and the NBC broadcast network itself–new out-of-wedlock mom Pressly lectures us that we shouldn’t teach our kids our “hate”:
Hate is something they shouldn’t inherit.
Too bad Ms. Pressly wasn’t talking to a mirror, instead of a camera. Pressly said she thinks Jews are ugly. In a December 2001 interview with Howard Stern, Pressly, in commenting that she thought Stern was ugly, told him he looked like “You got slapped [with] a yarmulke.” Get it? A yarmulke is a Jewish religious skullcap. Jews (those who wear yarmulkes) are ugly in Pressly’s eyes. We could say that trashy, uneducated hick Pressly–who got her start appearing nude in such classy cinematical wonders as “Poison Ivy: The New Seduction“–got slapped a pack of Marlboros and her father. But that wouldn’t be nice.
Good going NBC and ADL. Next time, get O.J. to do a PSA warning us against murdering our ex-spouses.
Likes like someone got slapped with hypocrisy.
