Former Saturday Night Live star Jon Lovitz has taken to Twitter to express his outrage over swastika graffiti and human feces left at the home of his Jewish friends.

3 teenage girls, driven by one of their mothers to the scene, spray painted two swastikas and the word “Jew” on the front lawn of a California family Lovitz is friendly with, something the actor wrote “is an insult to all of us”.

The girls involved will not be charged for a hate crime, but according to Lovitz, they have been expelled from school.  The homeowner said his daughter used to be friendly with the 3 girls who vandalized his home.

“It was a very unfortunate incident, but it did not amount to a criminal act,” a Los Angeles Police Department lieutenant told The Jewish Journal.

The mother faces up to a year in jail if charged by police.

After posting a picture of the vandalized property, Lovitz went further, publishing a picture of the three girls.  “They want to be known. Let them be famous as Jew Haters,” he tweeted.

Pictures from Lovitz’s Twitter account can be seen below.

  • i understand what hey did is wrong, but do you really need to show their picture on the internet. two wrongs dont make a right. they are under aged, maybe Jon should go to jail.

    • unnecessary1

      Why not show their faces? Are the Jew haters brave enough to vandalize yet too cowardly to be shown owning it? Absolutely show their faces. Shine the light on the Jew Haters. Let the world see them and shame them, if they have a consequence.

  • The ugliness of this incident is the mother. She clearly is a magot of the worst order. I hope the LA DA charges with a crime of vandalism and she goes to jail. No wonder these kids did what they did. Terrible…

  • Will somebody please define for the Los Angeles Police Department what the definition of a hate crime is. I think they need to read the statue again.

  • Yasher Koach to Jon Lovitz fir lending a voice and speaking out against anti-Semetism.

  • funniest thing is that they don’t even know how to paint a swastika… So goes to show the more anti semitic, the dumber you are… It seems that there really is a direct correlation.

  • Just amazing that kids in Los Angeles are getting worse. WOW maybe it is time to set an example with the parent who drove the kids over there
