Earlier this week, Sarah Silverman called upon the military to overthrow Donald Trump and now she’s saying her “fear” motivated her to “incite violence” against the president.

In a tweet Thursday, posted during the riots that broke out at UC Berkley, the comedian called on people to “join the resistance” and urged the military to help overthrow the “fascists.”

After receiving some criticism for the tweet, the comedian followed up with some more tweets on Friday in an attempt to clarify. Silverman claimed that her own fear motivated the tweet and said she’s now trying to keep it in check.

Silverman followed up again just to make it known she was referring to herself as the “peacenick snowflake” in the tweet.
