Famous Anti-Semitic Figures Hurting Our Community

I am trying to figure out what the heck is going on in the pop culture world right now? Famous people have been ignorantly posting anti-semitic comments towards the Jewish Community!

Why is this happening? What have we done to anyone to deserve these hurtful remarks?

Here are some anti-semitic remarks made by celebrities over the years.

Actor Mel Gibson, 64 has been accused of making very anti-semitic comments in the past.

In 2006, Mel Gibson went on an anti-semitic rant after he was arrested on a suspected DUI charge. He reportedly asked the arresting officer if he was Jewish and also said, “F*****g Jews… The Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world.”

Jewish actress Winona Ryder (born Winona Horowitz) has recently come forward with anti-semitic and homophobic comments made by Mel Gibson in the 90s. 

“We were all talking and (Gibson) said to my friend — who’s gay — ‘Oh wait, am I gonna get AIDS?’ And then something came up about Jews, and he said, ‘You’re not an oven dodger, are you?’” Ryder told a news outlet. “Oven Dodger” is a derogatory term for a person of Jewish heritage, presumably a reference to being burned in ovens in the Holocaust. Gibson has denied these claims.

The Film Industry Taking Action
Mel Gibson has been fired from the “Chicken Run” sequel and will not be reprising his role as Rocky in the Netflix movie.


Actor and entertainer, Nick Cannon 39, has recently made headlines after making anti-semitic comments on his podcast. After an audio-only version of the Nick Cannon podcast Cannon’s Class of June 30, 2020, was posted, Nick Cannon was denounced for supporting and even indulging in hate speech initiated by his guest Richard Griffin.

Furthermore, Nick Cannon also said that it was a shame that Louis Farrakhan, who is a minister known for his history of anti-semitic comments, had been silenced on Facebook.

On the Nick Cannon Podcast Cannon’s Class, Cannon claimed that he wishes to debate the idea of giving so much power to the Jewish Community, enraging his viewers even further. He claimed that with so much power, the Jewish community was turning into Illuminati, the Zionists, the Rothschilds.

On the Nick Cannon Podcast, Cannon went on to add that African-American people are Semitic people by definition and that Semitic people are not white.

Cannon has since put out an apologetic statement on his instagram account.

The TV Industry Taking Action

VIACOM-CBS who owns the station MTV,  has fired Nick Cannon from his show “Wild ‘N Out.”  Sadly, TV Network Fox has not reprimanded Nick for his actions. They are keeping Nick Cannon as the host and producer of the television show The Masked Singer. 


Ice Cube, 51, released a song in the 90’s titled “No Vaseline.”  One line in the lyrics read “’cause you let a Jew break up my crew,” referring to former N.W.A. manager Jerry Heller.

Cube recently posted a tweet of a mural of six white men playing Monopoly on the backs of black men. . “All we have to do is stand up, and their little game is over,” the picture was captioned. The tweet was immediately ripped for its anti-semitic caricatures of the men playing Monopoly. This mural was originally painted in London in 2012 — and later taken down after complaints over its’ anti-Jewish stereotypes.

Ice Cube tweeted another picture of the Star of David overlapping with the “Black Cube of Saturn,” which has been used by conspiracy theorists to represent Satan worshippers.

It is clear that these celebrities are not being properly educated on Jewish history and are choosing to speak with not enough knowledge of this subject.

On a positive note, we have already seen celebrities such as former NBA player Charles Barkley and actor Josh Gad stand up for the Jewish Community.

Charles Barkley had recently said on a Podcast “We gotta do better. I want allies. I don’t want to alienate anybody. And to take shots at the Jewish race, the white race, I just don’t like it because it’s not right.”

Frozen actor Josh Gad, 39, had recently put out an instagram post talking about losing members of his family in the Holocaust and urging those with lots of followers to use their platforms to do good.

We need more Jewish Celebrities with large platforms to speak up for our Jewish Community! Adam Sandler? Larry David? Idina Menzel? Come and support us!

Sadly, we still have a long way to go. This refers to all communities who are a target for racism.
