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

    Hamas Commander Reportedly Urges Hezbollah to Join Forces Against Israel – Five months after Israeli forces tried to assassinate Hamas military commander Mohammed Deif in Gaza, Deif appears to have signed a letter that the terrorist group claims he wrote in hiding. The letter, addressed to Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah, expressed Deif’s condolences for the death of Hezbollah terrorists during Sunday’s reported Israeli airstrike in Syria. Deif is said to have survived multiple assassination attempts, but he has not been seen in public for years. According to the Hezbollah-linked Al-Manar [...]

    Shlomo Carlebach Musical Has the Soul to Heal Frayed Race Relations – The cracks that had been simply painted over for so long began to show in Ferguson, Mo., in November 2014, but in truth they had begun to open wide much earlier—on Saturday, July 13, 2013. That is when a jury in Sanford, Fla., acquitted George Zimmerman of culpability for the death of a 17-year-old black man, Trayvon Martin. The cracks receded from view over time, as other news obscured them. Then came the evening of Aug. 9, 2014, [...]

    ‘Homeland’ Season Finale Stirs Controversy After Comparing Menachem Begin to Taliban Leader

He makes the remarks in a conversation with former CIA director Saul Berenson, a Jewish character played by Mandy [...]

    Placing Matisyahu Back Within a Life of Observance

    Shining Light on Fiction During the North Korea-Sony saga, we learned two important lessons. The first is that there are two sides to this story, and neither of them are correct because ultimately we should have neither inappropriate movies nor dictators. The second is that we cannot remain entirely fixed on the religious world, but we also must see beyond the external, secular view of reality. It’s important to ground our Torah-based thoughts into real-life activism. To view our act [...]

    Nine Decades of Moses at the Movies – Hollywood has had its share of big-budget biblical flops, but until now, the Exodus narrative has not been among them. Studios have brought Moses to the big screen sparingly, but in ways that defined the image and character of Moses for each generation of audiences. The first biblical epic In 1923, director Cecil B. DeMille left it to the American public to decide the subject of his next movie for Paramount. DeMille received a letter from a mechanic [...]

  • Arts and Culture Blogs Exodus on Screen (REVIEW)

    Exodus on Screen (REVIEW) – The story of the Exodus from Egypt is a tale as old as time itself, to borrow a turn of phrase. It’s retold every Passover, both at the seder table and whenever “The Ten Commandments” is aired on television. But the latest adaptation—Ridley Scott’s epic film, “Exodus: Gods and Kings”—fails to meet expectations. Scott’s “Exodus” alters the source material to service the story and ground the tale, but the attempt to reinvent the biblical narrative becomes laughable. Moses [...]

    ‘Jewish Food Movement’ Comes of Age - In December 2007, leaders of the Hazon nonprofit drafted seven-year goals for what they coined as the “Jewish Food Movement,” which has since been characterized by the increased prioritization of healthy eating, sustainable agriculture, and food-related activism in the Jewish community. What do the next seven years hold in store? “One thing I would like to see happen in the next seven years is [regarding] the issue of sugar, soda, and obesity, [seeing] what would it be like to rally the [...]

    Seeds of ‘Start-Up Nation’ Cultivated by Israel Sci-Tech Schools – Forget the dioramas. How about working on an Israeli Air Force drone? That’s exactly the kind of beyond-their-years access enjoyed by students at the Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) industrial vocational high school run by Israel Sci-Tech Schools, the largest education network in the Jewish state. More than 300 students (250 on the high school level and 68 at a two-year vocational academy) get hands-on training in the disciplines of aviation mechanics, electricity and energy control, and unmanned air [...]
