Macklemore may be a darling of gay rights activists and feel-good lefty types, but he's in potential hot water after the popular rapper played a show in a questionable costume. At a secret show in Seattle, Macklemore hit the stage appearing dressed to look like a stereotypical Jewish man.
Last Friday, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis were the surprise performers in honor of a new exhibit at Seattle's EMP Museum. Although it's difficult to determine who exactly Macklemore is supposed to be in his getup, it's clear fans on social media are just as confused. But anyone expecting a rousing statement from Thrift Shop star are still in waiting as he's barely addressed the brouhaha.
A fake witches nose, wig, and beard = random costume. Not my idea of a stereotype of anybody, tweeted Macklemore early Sunday morning. To Macklemore's credit, he never did signify what the costume was and it was media outlets across the nation speculating that he was mocking Jewish culture.
Macklemore was performing in support of the EMP exhibit Spectacle: The Music Video.
Could be a stereotypical Arab too.
Let’s spread that story.
I remember a time when we were mystified by how Nazis came to power. Now it seems plausible here. And they won’t be coming only after Jews because there aren’t enough. Their list will be much wider.
But rounding the list up will be a nasty task, and they cannot succeed at it.
Looks like Ahmadinejad...
Be careful. You could get him killed that way.
Julius Streicher approved.
Lets spread that story.
I like it! Let's go with scumbag rapper openly mocks Mohammed.
I’ve been wondering what became of I’m-A-Dinner-Jacket. Maybe he’s back to teaching others how to build portable bombs.
Who the heck is Macklemore? Seriously, I have no clue who he his and I’ve never heard his music.
It’s a Yakov Smirnoff costume - what a country!
Only one I know of played 2nd base for the Rangers in the 1990s.
Do what I do - whenever you hear the name of some musician you don't know, just assume he's some asshat enjoying 73 minutes of fame on pop radio. You don't have to know who anybody is, they'll be gone before it's important.
Looks like Frank Zappa with a Beatles haircut to me.
He also said a lot about Trayvon...he’s a brain-dead Seattle libtard.
