Macklemore was under a lot of fire for an offensive costume that he dressed up in, during a private concert this past Friday.
It all started when Seth Rogen tweeted out about Macklemore's interesting look. When Twitter users reacted viscously towards Macklemore for stereotyping the Jewish culture with his look, he took to his website to issue a statement about his look.
"The character I dressed up as had no intended cultural identity or background. I wasn’t attempting to mimic any culture, nor resemble one. A 'Jewish stereotype' never crossed my mind." said Macklemore. You can read more of his statement by clicking here.
I'm not sure what the purpose was behind him wearing the costume. I'm just really glad he issued an apology about it. I don't think that look could be a more obvious stereotype than what it is.
