Ukrainian Internet-shop Nu Sho accused of anti-Semitism because of advertising in Instagram. United Jewish community of the country felt that it humiliated the Jewish population of the country, informs a portal Jewishnews.
The store published an ad in which urged users to apply the author’s prints on t-shirts. As an example, the store posted a picture of a t-shirt printed with the phrase “Ti sho Jew?” (“Are you Jewish?” — approx. “Of the tape.ru”).
According to the United Jewish communities, the word carries a solely negative connotation and is used to insult Jewish people. In addition, the community believe that the use of the word “Jew” to refer to greedy people reinforces negative stereotypes about Jews that are “false, groundless and inhuman.”
After treatment, the posts in Instagram and Facebook store were removed, and the representatives of the online store apologized in the comments, noting that not are anti-Semitic and I apologize to those whose feelings could hurt advertising.
