Jewish Facebook Group Gets Pranked, Group Name Changed to ‘Hitler: Great Modern Man of History’


facebookSomeone played a cruel joke on a Jewish group on Facebook. The name of the “I Heart Jews” Facebook group, which had 2,000 members, was suddenly changed to “Hitler: Great Modern Man of History,” according to New York’s WNYW-TV. The members were not amused.

Fox News reports:

“It’s disgusting. It’s despicable,” said former “I Heart Jews” member Wendy Erdheim. “Like, who would ever do that?”

Another person posted, “Is this a joke? Because if it is not I am absolutely appalled.”

“One would have to say that it’s premeditated and that the intent was there from the beginning,” said Mark Weitzman of the Simon Wiesenthal Center.

A Facebook spokesman told Fox News that the social-networking site does not “allow groups that are hateful or threatening” and “will remove these as quickly as possible.”

The name was changed to “I Love Jews” recently.
