Mackelmore denies he was applying a Jewish stereotype when he and Ryan Lewis performed in Seattle. Mackelmore donned a look for the song “Thrift Shop” that was offensive to many onlookers.

For a surprise set celebrating a new exhibit at Seattle’s Experience Music Project Museum on Friday night, he opted to perform dressed as some kind of Jewish caricature, prosthetic schnozz included.

Mackelmore says he’s being misunderstood.

    Poor taste needing some explaining; this is tantamount to black face.

    I had to Google him to see who he was. His excuse is pathetic. A racist is a racist. Goodbye Mackelmore.
