My significant other pointed me to this article over at People Magazine. The allegation is that Macklemore is anti-semitic, because his costume looks like a caricature of jews from the Third Reich.
I don’t get it, my first association was “it looks like a caricature of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad“. Honestly, try an image search! The similarities are striking.
Of course in a climate of political correctness and censorship it depends which side of the big pond1 you’re on … in Iran you may be better off mocking jews than Ahmadinejad, perhaps?
