Kelly tweeted Tuesday that Silverman's use of language made her a questionable choice for children's movies, including the "Wreck-it Ralph" franchise in which Silverman recently starred in the sequel, "Wreck it Ralph 2: Ralph Breaks the Internet."

"This woman wants to star in children’s movies produced by Disney. (And just did, in Ralph Breaks the Internet.)," Kelly tweeted.

Silverman was quickly defended by fellow comedians like Jonah Ray Rodrigues and actress Olivia Wilde, who praised Silverman's "curiosity and compassion" in a reply to her tweet.


"Say hwhat now? 'This woman' happens to be a brilliant, badass feminist with more curiosity and compassion than most of us combined, and I can only hope my kids grow up to be like her," Wilde tweeted. Silverman responded to the message with a number of heart emojis.

Silverman is a frequent critic of the president and most recently hosted the political-themed show "I Love You, America," which featured Silverman meeting Americans who don't share her political beliefs. The show was recently canceled by Hulu after 21 episodes.
