Apatow, Judd – The Bridesmaids producer accepted the Critics’ Choice Award for best comedy last Thursday, and took the occasion to address legendary comedian Jerry Lewis’s infamous sexist comments: “Jerry Lewis once said that he didn’t think women were funny, so I’d just like to say, with all respect, ‘(Expletive) you!’” Some were surprised to find out Lewis had made the comments, but far more were shocked to discover that Lewis is still alive.
