Macklemore Denies Perpetuating Jewish Stereotypes With Concert Costume

Macklemore has responded to criticism that he wore a costume that perpetuates stereotypes of Jewish people.

After performing a concert wearing a fake nose, wig and beard, Macklemore was criticized by some for perpetuating stereotypes of Jewish people. 

The rapper has responded to the criticism with a Twitter post. 

"A fake witches nose, wig, and beard = random costume. Not my idea of a stereotype of anybody," Macklemore says in the Twitter post. 

Several people commented on Macklemore's performance, including comedian Seth Rogen.

".@macklemore, first you trick people into thinking you're a rapper, now you trick them into thinking you're Jewish?" Rogen said.

Rogen's Twitter post is below, followed by Macklemore's response to the criticism.
