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

As it turns out, it took a tough Jewish kid from New York City’s Lower East [...]

    When Torah Teaches Life and Life Teaches Torah (REVIEW)

    JNS.org – Rabbi Gordon Tucker spent the first 20 years of his career teaching at the Conservative movement’s Jewish Theological Seminary (JTS) and the next 20 years as the rabbi of Temple Israel Center in White Plains, N.Y. I confess that when I heard about the order of those events, I thought that Tucker’s move from academia to the pulpit was strange. Firstly, I could not imagine anyone filling the place of my friend, Arnold Turetsky, who was such a talented [...]

    Oscars 2015: Reflecting on Love at First Sight

    JNS.org – I’m in love, and have been for a long time. It’s a relationship filled with laughter, tears, intrigue, and surprise. It was love at first sight, back when I was a little girl—with an extra-terrestrial that longed to go home. From then on, that love has never wavered, and isn’t reserved for one, but for oh so many—Ferris Bueller, Annie Hall, Tootsie, Harry and Sally, Marty McFly, Atticus Finch, Danny Zuko, Yentl, that little dog Toto, Mrs. Doubtfire, [...]

Wilford methodically traces the lives and work of the agency’s three most prominent officers in the Middle East: Kermit “Kim” Roosevelt was the grandson of president Theodore Roosevelt, and the first head of [...]

    Anyone who spent time in the Jewish Catskills hotels – especially those like me, who returned for decades – must see the new documentary,”Welcome to Kutsher’s: The Last Catskills Resort.” Not only will the film transport you back to the glory days of your youth and thousands of memories, but it will also make you long for a world that is now lost forever. I returned to Kutsher’s one last time in the summer of 2009, but by then, the [...]

    Riding the Wave of Change in Part-Time Jewish Education

    JNS.org – Amid the numerous studies and analyses regarding Jewish American life, a simple fact remains: part-time Jewish education is the most popular vehicle for Jewish education in North America. Whenever and wherever parents choose Jewish education for their children, we have a communal responsibility to devote the necessary time and resources to deliver dynamic, effective learning experiences. The only way we can do this is by creating space for conversations and knowledge-sharing around innovative new education models. That also [...]
