It came about when Lovitz took to the social media platform to express concern for his friend’s daughter who had a hate crime committed against her in the form of a swastika and the word “jew” written in maple syrup on her yard.
Lovitz persisted, posting a picture of them with the caption, “The 3 girls who are bullying my friend’s daughter, they want to be known. Let them be famous as Jew haters. Pls RT.”
The incident which also included dog feces left on the porch, was not serious enough to be called a “hate crime.” According to the police “hate incident” was more fitting. Thankfully the girls were taken out of their school, partly because of all the attention on the web. The victim’s father (the son of Holocaust survivors) spoke out about the graffiti after the grade schoolers admitted to it, saying:
“The girls need to understand the severity of what they did. This wasn’t a joke. That symbol has a very different meaning here at this house.”
The mother who willingly drove them in the middle of the night may also face criminal charges. Nazi assholes: 6 million and 1. Jon Lovitz: 1. It’s a start.
