Macklemore Dons Fake Nose, Dresses As Stereotypical Jew, During Surprise Performance Over The Weekend

(Seattle Weekly) Apparently he was a little worried about being mobbed, after all he is a big part of the new video exhibit at the EMP, because he came on stage and continued a majority of his show, with a wig, beard, and false nose adhered not-so-securely to his face (by the end of his 15 minute set he looked a little like he was melting). Disguise or no, it was no secret he was the big guest everyone had been waiting for.

Not a good look both literally and figuratively. Dude dressed up as a Jewish caricature and performed "Thrift Shop," a song all about being cheap at a show in Seattle on Saturday, and slowly but surely he's beginning to catch heat for his racist gesture. I know this guy is the most successful independent artist of all time, but maybe there's something to be said for having PR people oversee your some of your "creative" decisions? 

Anyway, Seth Rogen chimed in on twitter with a nice little third degree burn. 

The lesson to be learned here is never go full Gargamel.
