Macklemore Causes Controversy With Costume That Resembles Jewish Stereotypes

posted on May 18, 2014, at 12:03 p.m.  Adam Davis BuzzFeed Staff

During a surprise performance in Seattle Friday night, Macklemore dressed up in an outfit seen by some as a collection of offensive Jewish stereotypes. Update: Macklemore has denied via tweet that the costume was a stereotype. posted on May 18, 2014, at 12:03 p.m.


MACKLEMORE

Which some are arguing was simply a hodgepodge of offensive Jewish stereotypes.




During the set, Macklemore wore a costume that included a large prosthetic nose and fake beard.

Many fans seemed to enjoy the set and didn’t comment on Macklemore’s choice of attire.


But once photos surfaced from the performance, others have turned to social media to question the outfit choice.

want to lose your faith in humanity? macklemore wore a jewish stereotype costume to a concert: http://t.co/BqRYFH1D1m via @dailydot

that time macklemore showed up to a concert in seattle dressed like a jewish stereotype (h/t @thetanyebest) http://t.co/Gd7Pih8WJy

What a sick joke this guy is @dailydot: Why did Macklemore perform a secret show in Jew-face? http://t.co/4trGKCowMr

While others have noted the relative lack of reaction to the costume from the audience members at the performance.

Super unsurprised that Seattlites didn't think Macklemore's Jewish costume was offensive http://t.co/FJyzzgFnPp

Macklemore says he is not Jewish.

RT @morgaaaann: @macklemore are you Jewish or what <- nah. Just got hella good Jewish homies

UPDATE, May 19, 9:30 a.m. ET: Macklemore has addressed the controversy via tweet, denying the stereotype accusation.

A fake witches nose, wig, and beard = random costume. Not my idea of a stereotype of anybody.
