Russian Skater Blasted for 'Offensive' Auschwitz-Themed Holocaust Costume

Russian Skater Blasted for 'Offensive' Auschwitz-Themed Holocaust Costume

Russian figure skater Anton Shulepov has sparked an outcry, after he donned an Auschwitz-themed Holocaust costume replete with black stripes and a large yellow Star of David.

“We are surprised that the International Skating Union initially posted a picture of this costume as a nominee for ‘costume of the year.’ Yellow Stars of David or other concentration camp imagery have no place in figure skating,” the ADL chief added.

Even more inexplicably, the International Skating Union nominated Shulepov’s outrageous costume for an award for best costume.

“This error has been corrected and the ISU sincerely apologizes for this mistake and the bad sentiments it has caused,” figure skating’s international governing body said according to the Washington Post.
