Video Round Up: Sarah Silverman Raises Her Voice on Gay Suicides

In receSarah Silvermannt headlines the news has been swarming with information regarding the deaths of the five teenage boys that were bullied to the point of suicide. Bust cover alumni Sarah Silverman loses her funny bone when addressing the gay youth of America in a video message posted on Perez Hilton's Youtube account.  

The quirky potty mouthed comedian points fingers towards the social policies constructed by the United States government stating that when the gay community's ability to marry the person they love or serve their country openly is refused, the message is also resonated to children. 

Silverman also states that bullies learn from example, and when kids are taunted and made fun of for being different it's no surprise they resort to their own self-destruction. "They learned it from watching you."
