Jewish Scandal star Joshua Malina blasted President Barack Obama on Monday for suggesting that the Jan. 9 Hyper Cacher kosher supermarket attack in Paris was a random act of terror.

“‘Random?’ Islamic jihadists targeting Jews at a kosher market is ‘random?'” Malina, 49, asked on Twitter, adding, “Umm..seems like it would be better described as ‘specific.'”

President Obama spoke about the Paris supermarket attack, which left four Jews dead, in a recent interview with He told the publication, “It is entirely legitimate for the American people to be deeply concerned when you’ve got a bunch of violent, vicious zealots who behead people or randomly shoot a bunch of folks in a deli in Paris.”

Though some Twitter users defended the president’s remarks, Malina tweeted, “Poor choice of words, in any event.”

“At a time when it’s vitally important to highlight the non-random nature of the act, the President misspoke,” he added.
