Hikind Condemns "Jerk Reaction" To Blackface Costume, Says Maybe Next Year, He'll Dress As A Gay Man
Speaking on Zev Brenner's Talkline radio show Monday night, Hikind complained about "certain people" in the Jewish community whose reaction to Hikind's blackface Purim costume wasn't one that Hikind wanted. And then Hikind said to Brenner, ""[The blackface costume was] all in the spirit of this very special holiday. But in the bottom line, would I do it all over again? I would look at additional alternatives. Because it's not about being a black person or Indian – or maybe I would be a gay person on Purim. Would that be OK, Zev, if I played a gay person next year?"
