John Cusack Says He Was “Tricked” Into Re-Tweeting Anti-Semitic Garbage

June 18, 2019 / Posted by:

Page Six says John Cusack is not an anti-semite. That’s according to John Cusack. You see, when he re-tweeted an anti-semitic message about Jews holding the world down, it was an “accident.” An “accident” he defended at first, but now he’s claiming it was a total accident. John didn’t mean to tweet that, it was a trick! Poor guy just can’t use technology and got got by an alt-right bot. Womp-womp!

Yesterday John re-tweeted an anti-semitic message, which was later deleted by him:

At first John was antagonistic when met with backlash and defended that re-tweet.

“You think Israel isn’t commuting [sic] atrocities against Palestinians?… What planet are you on? Palestinian [sic] are forced to live in an open air prison. That’s not anti semetic to say that–that recognizes their plight as part of the fight for justice.”

John got the message eventually (once his publicist or anyone around him with eyes and common sense saw what he’d done) and he came up with a bullshit excuse saying that a bot got him, which sounds like nothing but a lie since he defended that re-tweet at first.

“A bot got me- I thought I was endorsing a pro Palestinian justice retweet – of an earlier post – it came I think from a different source – Shouldn’t Have retweeted.”

And then he tweeted a much longer apology explaining himself:

So there you have it. He just got too heated about something else and ended up just accidentally using highly anti-semitic imagery to make a point he wasn’t even referencing to! Easy mistake, y’all. But of course the damage is done and now Roseanne Barr is coming for John since she’s a huge supporter of Israel. Although…. if he says that by “bot” he meant “Ambien,” Roseanne would put down her shank and join hands with her brother in Ambien-fueled Twitter foolery.
