Anti-Israel protesters heckle Jerry Seinfeld outside NYC Jewish event: ‘Nazi scum!’

Comedian Jerry Seinfeld was heckled by a swarm of anti-Israel protesters at a New York City event where they shouted “F*** you!” and called him “Nazi scum!”

The comedic icon left the “State of the World Jewry Address” with Free Press founder Bari Weiss as the angered pro-Palestinian protesters besieged them.

“Genocide supporter, you support genocide!” the protesters shouted at Seinfeld as he departed the event on the Upper East Side Saturday night.

“F— you, you support genocide,” another raged while someone screamed “Nazi scum!” at him.

Seinfeld did not seem fazed by the profanity or the attacks in the least. He smiled and gave a little wave before casually getting into the back of a black SUV surrounded by NYPD officers.

According to police, two were arrested following the event.

“Protesters were critical of Weiss, a strong supporter of Israel, and tried to connect her to the death of Palestinian professor and poet Refaat Alareer, who was killed in Gaza in December in an Israeli airstrike,” the New York Post reported.

“Alareer tweeted in late October that if he was killed, ‘I blame Bari Weiss and her likes.’ His tweet was in response to Weiss criticizing Alareer for joking in an earlier tweet about whether an Israeli baby was burned alive in an oven ‘with or without baking soda’ during the Oct. 7 attack on Israel,” the media outlet added.

“Alareer reportedly mocked victims of the terror attack and hours after the assault said in a BBC interview that Palestinian resistance was ‘legitimate and moral,'” the New York Post continued.

Seinfeld faced hatred from hundreds of pro-Palestinian protesters following the Oct. 7 attack on Israel that left over 1,200 dead. Hundreds more were kidnapped. Women, men, and children were raped and slaughtered during the attack by Hamas terrorists.

“Pro-Palestinian protesters marching through downtown Syracuse in December protested Seinfeld’s stand-up show outside the Landmark Theatre, accusing the star of being ‘complicit in genocide’ over his support for Israel,” Fox News reported.

The Daily Orange reported that the protesters called for a cease-fire between Israel and Hamas and an end to all U.S. aid to Israel during the march.

“They also condemned House lawmakers for passing a resolution in December which declared anti-Zionism as antisemitism,” Fox News noted.

“The local ‘Shut It Down For Palestine’ demonstration — organized by the Syracuse chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America, the Syracuse Collective for Palestinian Liberation, the Resilient Indigenous Action Collective, and the Syracuse chapter of the Party for Socialism and Liberation — was the latest of several similar pro-Palestine demonstrations on college campuses and in cities across the country following the start of the Israel-Hamas war,” The Daily Orange noted.
