An Open Response to Halle Berry

Many have by now heard that Halle Berry dropped an anti-semitic slur during the taping of the Tonight Show (which in itself is anti-semitic by being so unfunny). Here are the details of the Berry moment (later removed from the tape):

Actress Halle Berry has been forced to issue a public apology after making an apparent anti-Semitic joke on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.”

During the taping for Friday’s show, the Oscar-winning star was showing Leno distorted images of herself on a computer, when she said: “Here’s where I look like my Jewish cousin!” as a picture of her with a large nose appeared.

I am the child of two survivors. My childhood was filled with warnings about and examples of anti-Semetism. This issue is in my DNA.

So on behalf of the Jewish people, let me make the following comment regarding this slur by Ms. Berry.

I’d still fuck her.

(FWIW, I’d also probably fuck her fictional Jewish cousin.)

Concentration is important!
