Sarah Silverman is slamming a false tabloid story that claimed she’s pressuring boyfriend Michael Sheen into marrying her.

“Just read that I wanna get married which is hilarious b/c I will never get married,” the comedienne tweeted on Sunday night.

She went on, “Why would I want the govt involved in my love life? Ew. It’s barbaric.”

The rumor began in Star magazine, which ran the headline, “Sarah Wants A Ring,” and claimed Silverman was leaving “pictures of engagement rings all over the place” so Sheen would get the “hint” to propose.

But the story wasn’t just wrong — Silverman also found it offensive.

She tweeted, “That sh*t [fake rumors] never bothers me b/c who cares but I feel like this one is bigoted. The Jew girl MUST want a RING! Yich”

Yich indeed.
