Miley Cyrus Accused of Making Antisemitic Comments

Is it now bad manners to call someone an old Jew?

Miley Cyrus on her 'We Can't Stop' video

The 20-year-old star Miley Cyrus has caused some more controversy, by reportedly suggesting that music industry executives are too old and too Jewish to handle her career, the Daily Mail reported.

“It’s always weird when things are targeted for young people, yet they’re driven by people that are like 40 years too old,” Cyrus told Hunger TV.

Her new video for We Can’t Stop features spankings, twerking (shaking her hips in an up-and-down bouncing motion), sexualized images involving hot dogs and french fries, the typical stuff your average Jewish music mogul just won’t approve.

“It can’t be like this 70-year-old Jewish man that doesn’t leave his desk all day, telling me what the clubs want to hear.”

She also said: “At first, on paper, that video sounded insane. No one understood it, and I’m just like, Let me film it and then, if it doesn’t work out, you never have to trust me again — but if it works out you have to let me drive this ship.”

So Miley Cyrus thinks she’s smarter than the powers-that-be in the music business. But does it make her an antisemite? Is it now bad manners to call someone an old Jew? Tell us what you think…

    not really anti semitic but rather young and dumb

    Lottesometimes I watched the wrecking ball the other day as my female colleagues urged me too because they were outraged.

  3. rallen78 says:

    Lottesometimes even doing all that she comes across as dull and as sexy as a wet fish. Hope she has a short shelf life.

  4. rallen78 says:

    Lottesometimes Also on a really trivial note – why is the music always so dull?

  5. rallen78 says:

    Lottesometimes To cheer you up – I will give you perhaps the greatest murder mystery of them all – the Wallace Case http://t.co/oOJoVygXTd

  6. GinLovingNina says:

    rallen78 Lottesometimes I can’t see the point of her releasing records. Surely she only exists as a human outrage bus?

  7. Why don't you just ignore her? You add to her publicity.

  8. Alan Kardon says:

    If she had talent it would be an insult. By writing about her you give her undeserved publicity for being mediocre at best.

  9. Anonymous says:

    I think it was a backhanded compliment! B"H that Jewish men, even in the music biz, don't "get" Miley Cyrus.

  10. Myriam Obadia says:

    She's cheap, she's talentless, and she exposes herself in pornographic video. What importance do you want us to give her words? They have none.

  11. I wonder if the 70-year old "Jewish" music industry moguls are offended that Miley thinks they are still Jewish. These guys are Progressives who don't believe in G-d, Judiasm or religion. How dare she call them Jews!

  12. NannySkexis says:

    Oy vey, oy vey, it’s another holocaust! ZE SUFFERINK!

  13. Sam Norte says:

    Jews will now set out to destroy her, because she is white.

  19. Aldo Mimoun says:

    Coming from such a person, it's not worth the ink it's written with.

  20. Alexis Worlock says:

    That was simply descriptive. It is not anti-Semitism.

  21. Alan Scopp says:

    so why didnt she just say "old man", why did she use the "J" word at all?

  22. Lori Lowenthal Marcus says:

    because to her they are the same, negative adjective. I think it is anti-Semitic on her part. And if she wants to be independent of the old Jewish men, then go all the way and break from your record label and create your own. Like a bad female dog, she's just biting the hand that feeds it, and feeling all awesome about being speaking truth to power. Grow up.

  23. Neil Katz says:

    Miley Cyrus' comments regarding 'old Jews running things' is most probably rooted in anti-Semitism, in my opinion. What amazes me is the following she gets for her 'art'. She is not very attractive nor is she very talented. She looks and acts more like a 'porn star wannabe' than a creative genius.

  24. Bad manners is her new self. As it is for too many others.
    Not anti-semitic.
    Sell your albums Miley and grow up. Then sell more albums.
    BTW – I'm an old Jew who couldn't tell anyone what the clubs want to hear. Good for me. Miley – In the end – it's all about good manners and being a positive force for the planet. Know you will do it right.

  25. Dov Grauman says:

    What? There are no getiles in the music business? Why lay it on the “old” Jews? And here I am thinking that hot dogs are for eating. I must be an old Jew. Come to think of it I am.

  26. Dov Grauman says:

    Brain dead.

  27. Anonymous says:

    If you can say ****** in the movies (every Quentin Tarrantio movie) and television (30 rock), why can't you call someone an old jew?

  28. NannySkexis says:

    Dov Grauman I’m baffled by the depth and detail of your response — a new height is reached for humankind.

  29. Ioan Serban says:

    I agree, Abe! Too many people gang up on this girl. Let her follow her own way, I'm sure she will turn up o be ok… we all raised our middle finger to someone at one time or another, and yet no one tried to cut it off…

  30. Yechiel Baum says:

    with those dog teeth, she should allow the pagans to handle her career down the toilet.

  31. Russ Katz says:

    she is so freakin discusting….

  32. Dov Grauman says:

    Would not take much to baffle a mind like yours. As for your remarks– a new low for humankind

  33. Wendy Moss says:

    If Miley is going to talk about some nameless, faceless, record executive allegedly being Jewish, then we must also have this:

    Actors of fully Jewish background: -Logan Lerman, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Mila Kunis, Natalie Portman, Bar Refaeli, James Wolk, Julian Morris, Esti Ginzburg, Kat Dennings, Erin Heatherton, Odeya Rush, Anton Yelchin, Paul Rudd, Scott Mechlowicz, Andrew Garfield, Lizzy Caplan, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Gal Gadot, Robert Kazinsky, Melanie Laurent, Marla Sokoloff, Shiri Appleby, Justin Bartha, Adam Brody, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Gabriel Macht.

    Actors with Jewish mothers and non-Jewish fathers -Jake Gyllenhaal, James Franco, Scarlett Johansson, Daniel Radcliffe, Alison Brie, Eva Green, Emmy Rossum, Jennifer Connelly, Eric Dane, Jeremy Jordan.

    Actors with Jewish fathers and non-Jewish mothers, who themselves were either raised as Jews and/or identify as Jews: -Ezra Miller, Alexa Davalos, Nat Wolff, James Maslow, Josh Bowman, Ben Foster, Nikki Reed, Ansel Elgort.

    Actors with one Jewish-born parent and one parent who converted to Judaism -Dianna Agron, Sara Paxton (whose father converted, not her mother), Alicia Silverstone, Jamie-Lynn Sigler.

  34. NannySkexis says:

    Dov Grauman And by that, you admit your own level…convenient…if I hadn’t been sarcastic, you would be spot on! Really…even worse than “ze zix million”?

  35. Dov Grauman says:

    Nanny Skexis
    Sarcasm is the lowest form of wit. Some things should not be joked about. If yoi have a problem with that I recommend taking bits of sharpened pencils and shoving them in your nomular cavity while rubbing hot perigrine 200 on your tumplin.
