If there’s one thing Sarah Silverman knows how to do well, it’s attract negative reactions with hardly any effort.
On Sunday, Silverman thought to tackle neo-Nazis by pointing out how they were too stupid to Google how to draw a proper swastika on a sidewalk:
Walking to get coffee saw these all over a sidewalk in the town I'm in. Is this an attempt at swastikas? Do neo nazis not have google? pic.twitter.com/A4ses1G3ru

“Walking to get coffee saw these all over a sidewalk in the town I’m in. Is this an attempt at swastikas? Do neo nazis not have google?” she taunted on Twitter.
There was only one problem with her assertion. The malicious symbols on the ground were none other than surveyor marks.
Twitter users made sure to share this with Silverman:
i think innocent surveyors markings

Some wondered whether or not she was joking:

Silverman quickly revealed that she probably wasn’t:
It's a construction marker. Innocent mistake for a Jew that gets "burn in an oven!" at least weekly on twitter. Still pretty close though.. pic.twitter.com/8Gsuy3QkuE
