He’s never been Bar Mitzvah’d. He doesn’t fast on Yom Kippur. So, why is Alabama WR Jerry Jeudy rockin’ a Star of David around his neck at the NFL Combine?
“My last name’s Jeudy. People sometimes call me [Jew for short].”
Long story short … Jeudy really likes his “Jew” nickname and decided to cop himself some “jew”elry to let everybody know!
“So, I just got a Jewish star … I’m not Jewish though.”
Jeudy also has a decorative piece with the word, “Jew” spelled across.
Everyone in the media room laughed when Jeudy offered up his explanation — but the question … is it all Kosher with actual Jewish people?
We asked some of the Jewish people in the office for their thoughts — here’s what we got.
— “I think it’s weird and f**ked up.”
— “If it’s not used in a derogatory way, I don’t care.”
— “It doesn’t bother me.”
— “I’m not offended by it. I hope somehow the ‘Jew’ nickname will spark interest in Judaism and Jewish culture.”
— “I don’t like that one bit. I think it’s making a mockery of people’s identity. I find it very offensive.”
So, division in the office … how do you feel about the chain?
