A video titled "10 Hours of Walking in NYC as a Woman" depicting street harassment of women went viral last week and while it was praised by some for highlighting the important issue, it also came under fire for its racial slant and selective editing. Due its viral nature, it has since spawned a whole host of parodies that have been featured all over the Internet.
It was only a matter of time until a Jewish parody came out and the person responsible for this "kosher" version is Scott Rogowsky, host of the live comedy show "Running Late." His "10 Hours of Walking in NYC as a Jew" clip pokes fun at the original video and features him walking the streets of New York while being "harassed" by Orthodox Jews interrogating him about his religion.
Rogowsky encouters a range of mainly ultra-Orthodox Jewish men who ask him everything from "[Can you give me] a little Shehecheyanu or something?" "Are you Jewish? and "Sniff my etrog."
Since being posted on Sunday, the video has had over 100,000 views and has also received its fair share of compliments and controversies. Some social media users praised the video for being hysterical and on topic, whereas others labeled it "anti-semitic trash."
