Former Homophobe Macklemore Gets Busy Offending Jews



Everyone’s least favorite white rapper, Macklemore, is getting even more detractors over a highly offensive costume that he wore for a surprise show in his hometown of Seattle. The rapper decided to don a fake black wig, black beard, and a huge prosthetic nose for his show. Needless to say, the costume clearly looks like a highly offensive and over-the-top take on a Hasidic Jewish man.

The worst part of all of it is that the rapper is claiming that it was completely a “random costume,” and he definitely wasn’t trying to offend anyone… Right. He tweeted out,  “A fake witches nose, wig, and beard = random costume. Not my idea of a stereotype of anybody.”

The whole thing is kind of surprising, since this is the guy who penned a song all about  acceptance of gay people and their rights. Needless to say, there’s going to be a lot of backlash towards Macklemore about this. The tweets have started flying but the best one so far has come from comedian and actor Seth Rogen, who roasted the rapper. Come on, Macklemore, get yourself together. Check out Rogen’s tweet below…
