A Chicago television news station made a truly unfortunate art choice to accompany a segment on the Jewish High Holidays on Wednesday: the yellow Star of David that Jews were legally required to wear during the Holocaust.
The stock photo was first flagged by a Chicago editor, who posted a screenshot of the WGN news broadcast online.
I thought they were proud of the yellow star though?
A patriotic symbol of their suffering or some such thing.
They use it in their protests against European nationalists.
But I guess it is like Blacks and the word “nigger/nigga.”
In fact, it is exactly like that.

We are truly sorry for inadvertently using an offensive image in our Yom Kippur story. We apologize and deeply regret the error.

Apologies are not enough! You must now give Jews money!
I'll show you a kipper, kikes – when I bring 1000 lbs of force – against Jews! pic.twitter.com/dnpGTn2j3a
