(AllHipHop News) Macklemore caught some backlash this weekend when the Seattle rapper dressed up as what some perceived as a stereotypical Jewish person. While performing at EMP Museum’s “Spectacle: The Music Video” Mack showed up wearing a large prosthetic nose, beard, and wig.
The “Thrift Shop” creator responded to the growing controversy on Twitter. According to Macklemore, the outfit was not meant to be a representation of any particular ethnic group.
A fake witches nose, wig, and beard = random costume. Not my idea of a stereotype of anybody.
