MACKLEMORE SLAMMED FOR 'JEWISH' GETUP

Macklemore has landed himself in hot water for performing at a Seattle gig wearing a costume that many felt mocked Jewish stereotypes.

A number of Twitter comments branded the 30-year-old US rapper anti-Semitic.

US actor Seth Rogen, who is Jewish, unleashed an angry tweet, writing: "Macklemore, first you trick people into thinking you're a rapper, now you trick them into thinking you're Jewish?"

Macklemore tweeted his defence: "A fake witches nose, wig, and beard = random costume. Not my idea of a stereotype of anybody."
