Which, even if he initially denied it, we gotta admit, it does kinda look like one…
However, Macklemore took to his website to release a statement explaining that when constructing his disguise for the event, the fact that he resembled a Jewish stereotype “nevercrossed [his] mind.”
“Earlier in the day I thought it would be fun to dress up in a disguise and go incognito to the event, so that I could walk around unnoticed and surprise the crowd with a short performance. I picked up a bunch of fake mustaches and beards and grabbed a left over wig from our recent trip to Japan…
We showed up to the event, I hit the stage in the outfit, rocked two songs, took pictures and went home. We had a great time and it was fun to be a surprise guest in a costume. I’ve always loved dressing up and have been doing so my entire career. The character I dressed up as on Friday had no intended cultural identity or background.
I wasn’t attempting to mimic any culture, nor resemble one. A “Jewish stereotype” never crossed my mind. My intention was to dress up and surprise the people at the show with a random costume and nothing more…”
While what he says kind of does make sense, if you just LOOK at the outfit he wore, it’s hard NOT to see the stereotype.
So while it may not have been intentional, how did NO ONE tell him how similar he looked to the Jewish caricature?!!?
Where was Ryan Lewis to stop him and save the day ?!? Sigh…

Zac was reportedly given a top secret script but unfortunately we have NO IDEA for what! Right now all we can do is speculate along with the fans. So which superhero might Zac be playing? Check out our guesses …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
It’s possible Marvel is trying to get Zac for their reboot of Daredevil. Bringing in a star would be a good idea to kickstart Marvel’s flagship Netflix series, and Zac is not a bad choice.
Not only does he have the physical ability to play the blind crime fighter, he also has the looks- Daredevil is known as quite the ladies’ man, having dated Elektra, Black Widow, and more!
Zac may also be in talks for a Guardians Of The Galaxy spinoff. Adam Warlock is a later addition to the team, perfect for a sequel. And he’s also perfect period- he’s an artificial man made to look like the best humanity has to offer- sound like anyone we know?
Everyone from Jon Hamm to Johnny Depp has been linked to Doctor Strange, Marvel’s Sorcerer Supreme. Zac is definitely a younger choice, but he DID already play a surgeon in Parkland.
It’s kind of an improbable idea, but we think Zac could bring a lot to the dojo as another one of the upcoming Netflix show stars, billionaire kung fu master Iron Fist.
