Macklemore Wore a Stupid Costume and Offended Everyone

By: Robert Kessler / May 19, 2014

In Seattle on Friday, Macklemore, 2013’s Snow, performed a secret show dressed, for no apparent reason, in a rather offensive costume. The rapper took the stage in a dark wig with a fake nose and a glued-on beard, which many interpreted as a Jewish stereotype. After photos of Macklemore’s costume spread online, many began admonishing him.

Even Seth Rogen got in on the action.

But for his part, Macklemore claims the costume was not meant to stereotype.

Why, then, he would wear this is anyone’s guess. Ryan Lewis, who did not dress in an offensive costume, remained crazy hot.
