    What an adorable little boy!

    People are just sick, plain as that.

    Why?
    Guest
    Why?

    I don’t even understand why this would be shared

    Thank G-d
    Guest
    Thank G-d

    Thank G-d, the little bochur probably didn’t understand a word the camera “man” was saying because it isn’t English, Hebrew, or Yiddish. B”H.

    Yes people can be so mean

    Yes people can be so mean

    But that precious child was so adorable looking blankly at that man making fun of him ! That boy was probably thinking that man was talking weird lol!!

    Parents?
    Guest
    Parents?

    I do not see a parent in the shot, and there is clearly a stranger talking to the kid (with foul language). Where were the parents??

    yall chill
    Guest
    yall chill

    Chill ppl im a frum jew and i still have the question of y this is a haircut

    This is why...
    Guest
    This is why...

    Posting pictures and videos of children under the age of 18 without permission from their parents should be illegal. This is not an example of freedom of speech this is an example of humiliating and harassing a child.

    Cute kid!!

    Cute kid!!

    Happens to be a very cute kid!!

    Child walking alone??
    Guest
    Child walking alone??

    Obviously the person filming is mentally ill, and it is unfortunate that this pure child is subjected to his rant… but the question begs why this child – who looks no older than 5 years old- is walking alone on the street without adult supervision?? Had a parent/adult been supervising even from a distance, this would never have happened!
    Thank god this boy was only subjected to verbal abuse and the aftermath is limited to subjective interpretation.

    #6- DISGUSTING!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Guest
    #6- DISGUSTING!!!!!!!!!!!!

    So what if they have such a haircut????
    Is that still a reason why this cute kid should be ridiculed like that?????????
    #7-totally agree with you. When it reaches this point, there shouldn’t be freedom of speech.
    This person should go to jail.

    And what would be the reaction if someone filmed a black kid and made fun of his hanging pants and skin color or anything else. All the liberal jewish politicians would look to lock up the camera man for life time jail. But when it comes to Jews like the crown Heights pogrom they all hid under their beds. Outvote every democrat. Let’s tegister and fight back.

    That little boy is adorable and will have a productive life.
    The moron who ridiculed him is just that a dumb stupid moron.

    This child looked scared
    Guest
    This child looked scared

    He knows he’s not supposed to talk to strangers and here he is being verbally accosted, by no doubt, a very strange stranger. I think he doesn’t know what to do, and if he’s crying as the brute says it’s because of this vile excuse for a human being. He frightened I’m sure!

    Should be arrested

    He is speaking inappropriately to a child. The man should be arrested.

    i had to listen it to 10 times before I was able to decipher his message

    Jew or Jewish, but it’s also an ugly verbal assault on a very vulnerable and helpless small child!

    The criticism wasn’t as quick as it should have been. It was up on social media for two days. There were people laughing at it and sharing the video. People reported it and Facebook didn’t take it down until 2 days later.

    People are just mean without even realizing , like sometimes they can be so judgmental. Whatever , that boy is really cute. Also that man might not be even antisemitic but just mean and bullying which isn’t right either way . Just saying frum Jews can be mean too, whatever…

    So if this was a situation in which the man told a black kid in cornrows or whatever… “I’d be crying if I looked like you”

    According to your logic that is not racist?

    I checked this guys instergram just to see his profile and I did and I went out of his account and on the look of his face he looks like some of norm black guy who has nothing to do with his life and just picks on people and swears Nasty things that’s what see in him

    Wow

    Wow

    Even a regular adult knows not to say certain stuff kids if these parents of this kid wanted they have the rights from the law to sent this to court.one time I was on a train with my family and there was a black women a bit mental and she was eating her lunch and she said oh I can’t eat here in peace because of those nasty Jews and if they dont leave I will and she did and someone in the train cart who is lawer said if you want u can bring to court

    I’m an adult but if anyone approached me an unleashed this

    horrific tirade on me, I also would have been scared & intimidated by it. I wouldn’t know what to expect next from this animal. I assume the child was very close to his home and not lost G-d forbid. Many chassidim do not follow social media so possibly that’s why the indignation and outrage was late in coming. I first saw it only today. Maybe Abe Foxman might be assist in this incident? This was truly abhorrent.

    Shame on our neighbors

    Shame on our neighbors. They are so quick to get offended and quick to offend. Do unto others. they are the ones that do – to us.

    Idk I thought it was kinda funny, what he said. That’s how he talks it’s not how we talk but I don’t think there was evil intent there. Whatever

    Focus on the real issues

    This is sick and totally wrong, maybe even anti Semitic. However, from watching this video it appears this man had no malice or hate, neither was there any injury. This is just someone with low humor and poor taste. There’s no there there. Let’s focus on those that hurt or harass our communities with hate and malice. Let’s call them out for what they are; cruel, bigoted, racist antisemites and let’s push our police and elected officials to deal harshly with them.

    Stupid man – some people offend and insult wherever and whenever they can. But he at least apologized … But where was the parent/s?

    Nice the perpetrator gave a casual apology but,

    don’t you think he might have been traumatized by the profane verbal onslaught from a very vulgar strange individual?

    I agree. It was silly to post this video, but I don’t think the guy had bad intentions. And this is definitely not anti-Semitic. Let’s not get offended so easily, and save the word anti-Semitic for the real antisemites.

    no its not a reason but he is just having harmless fun. and i laughed and im sure other jews did to. ppl need to laugh at themselves at some point in life

    Adorable little boy. The guy who took this video was being funny (or thought he was). He did not say anything that terrible. The only thing was he could have watched his language in front of a child. To call this anti-semitic is a bit much.

    funny. the guy has never been to NYC? they wear rings in their cheeks, and everywhere, and color their hair, eyebrows, and everything else. and he picks on an innocent child? He is psychotic. its just abusive and intrusive, whether or not it was antisemetic.
    Mental health and inappropriate behavior is so way unattended to.

    Although he did say obnoxious things to a kid, he did apologize. I’m happy he realized his mistake. Of course, it should never happen anyway.

    It would be a shame

    If the message we give our kids is that when some chayo ro’oh tried to make fun of you you should be traumatized. In our family we were not raised to let pathetic things like this traumatize us. Aderaba, we were taught to shrug it off and the Rebbe even wants us to use this as an opportunity to educate the goyim about sheva mitzvos. We should make a cheshbon if we want to teach our kids that every little comment can traumatize them or if we want to teach them to be strong and faif oif de velt. Let’s… Read more »
