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

    Can ‘Islamic Reformation’ Work? (REVIEW)

    It is cocktail hour on an April afternoon in 2004. The sun is hot on Amsterdam’s canals, and I am sitting at Café den Leeuw on the Herengracht with Ayaan Hirsi Ali. Hirsi Ali is still a member of the Dutch Parliament, and we talk about Islam. Specifically, we talk about the concept of “moderate Islam,” or what she calls “liberal Islam.” And she has one word for it. “It’s absurd,” she says. “It’s complete nonsense. There is no ‘liberal […]

    A Look at the Vilna Vegetarian Cookbook (REVIEW)

    Everybody knows that cooking varies from country to country. There are Italian restaurants, Chinese restaurants, etc. We associate different styles of cuisine with different languages. Do we also think of the association of different cuisines with different dialects? We should, because cooking also varies from region to region. Litvaks and Galitsyaners have their own traditions of preparing gefilte fish. Marvin I.

    Analysis: Jewish Women Less Likely Than Catholics to Take Husband’s Name

    An analysis of New York Times wedding announcements showed that women married in Jewish ceremonies were less likely to take their husband’s last names than those married in Roman Catholic ceremonies, the Times reported on Saturday. The largest gap between the two groups was in 1995 when 66 percent of Catholic women took their husband’s names and 33 percent of Jewish women did the same. Nearly half of the women featured in the publication’s wedding pages since 1985 took their husband’s name after marriage, while about […]

    Report Highlights Success of Russian-Jewish-American Ballroom Dancers

    Russian-American Jews are some of the most successful ballroom dancing competitors in the U.S., South Dakota Public Broadcasting (SDPB) Radio reported on Thursday. Jonathan Sarna, a professor of Jewish history at Brandeis University, said their success can be traced back to Jewish discrimination in the former Soviet Union. Because of the prejudice they faced, Russian Jews had to perform better than their peers in every field, including dancing, in order to have a chance of getting ahead. “They knew that if they […]
