Macklemore in controversial ‘Jewish’ costume at surprise EMP performance

Attendees were encouraged to come in costume from their favorite music video. Unclear what video Mackelmore’s costume is referencing, but it seems more than a few people think it’s referencing some unsavory Jewish stereotypes. By now, many of the national media outlets, including HuffPo, Buzzfeed, Page Six and Gawker have jumped in. Like they do.
