(Newser) – This weekend Macklemore and Ryan Lewis surprised fans in their hometown of Seattle by performing at the Experience Music Project Museum ... but Macklemore performed in an odd costume, leading many to wonder if the rapper crossed a line into anti-Semitism. He donned a wig, beard, and a big fake nose—the Daily Dot called it a "Jewish caricature." But Macklemore tweeted in response to the uproar, "A fake witches nose, wig, and beard = random costume. Not my idea of a stereotype of anybody."
