David Draiman calls BS on Macklemore’s excuses for ‘anti-Semitic gimmick’

http://twitter.com/#!/OandAshow/status/468698768506757121 Rapper Macklemore claims he wasn’t going for a “Jewish caricature” when he cobbled together the disguise that has accusations of anti-Semitism zipping around social media. http://twitter.com/#!/macklemore/status/468593904913096704 He released a fauxpology blaming the media and just about everyone else for misunderstanding his oh-so-brilliant attempt at “random” ambiguity.

Shannon R. Watts lashes out at CNN anchor for not politicizing killing spree
