Sketch at Oscars Causes Anger for Reinforcing Antisemitic Stereotypes

FSWC Reports:

From ynetnews.com:

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) on Monday derided as “offensive and not remotely funny” an Oscars sketch featuring Seth MacFarlane’s character “Ted,” in which the animated bear tells actor Mark Wahlberg that if “you want to work in this town” you have to be Jewish. 

 The League said it was "sad and disheartening” that the awards show sought to use age-old, anti-Jewish stereotypes for laughs."
