Harley Quinn has a serious problem with antisemitism. Associating Penguin, a corrupt rich character with a hooked nose with Jewishness, when that connection has literally never existed anywhere else in the DCU before, is antisemitic. The way it treats Jewish characters in the show- like the jokes about cremation? the jokes about penny pinching? the way the Jewish characters get the most drawn out, graphic deaths? That’s not cool, it’s not funny, and it’s not ok.
Frankly, I don’t expect anyone to care, but this is too important not to say anything, especially while everyone’s begging for this show to get renewed.
Don’t waste your time replying if you’re going to write paragraphs upon paragraphs about how “you can’t take a joke” or “it’s got gay rep/non white characters/it hates rich people so you can’t criticize it”. All of that is beside the point.
Listen to Jewish people. Listen to Jewish voices. “Never again” starts with microaggressions like this, here and now. No show, no matter how funny or well written, is worth throwing Jewish people, or minorities of any sort for that matter, under the bus.
