Sarah Silverman apologises to Paris Hilton for prison jokes
Comedian Sarah Silverman has apologised to Paris Hilton for jokes she told at the MTV Movie Awards in 2007 about the socialite's forthcoming prison stint. The awards were attended by Hilton just hours before she was jailed for violating probation on an alcohol-related drink-driving conviction. Much of Silverman's 2007 monologue is too explicit to repeat, but when she said "Paris Hilton is going to jail", the audience whooped and cheered. Hilton went on to serve three days of her sentence but was released early due to a confidential medical problem. In February Hilton backed parents trying to toughen to the law on restraint and seclusion in Northern Ireland schools, describing herself as a "Survivor of restraint and seclusion".
