The Algemeiner: The Real Reason Matisyahu Cut His Beard

25

matisyahu-no-beard1In a stab at humor, the Algemeiner Journal weighed in on the controversy surrounding Matisyahu, the Jewish singer/rapper, suddenly cutting off his beard.

The Algemeiner offers several cartoons depicting, satirically, why Matisyahu might have cut his beard.

Is it funny or is it a poor attempt at humor? We’ll let you decide.

The cartoons can be seen here.

  1. There’s nothing Jewish about hip-hop rap banging. So cutting his beard was not surprising at all. It goes well with his non-Jewish “music”.

  2. The cartoons aren’t specific to Matisyahu. They are making fun of all frum Jews with beards. With Jews like that who needs anti-Semites.

  3. Why is everyone so interested in other people’s lives and what they do? Maybe tomorrow it will be on that I forgot to brush my teeth???

  4. This isn’t a controversy… and those cartoons weren’t close to funny. I have a sense of humor, occasionally too much of one, but that just wasn’t creative humor.

  5. #12 anon…did he? I saw him interviewed the day after with a Huge black kippa…
    #6 I was told or read that he moved to Beverly Hills…can anyone verify that?
    The point is that he is obviously going through some tough times spiritually and we don’t need to come down strong like #5 did. We need to give people time…wait until we hear the story form the horses’ mouth.

  7. It’s a tragic fact about “modern chareidi” living. There is a lot of confusion out there, and it would be better for those committed to learn how to take things one step at a time (rather than to jump and then slip, r”l). I am actually more upset at the undeserved sarcasm and publicity of this issue than of the act itself.

  8. He’s still wearing a yarmulka, going to shul and mikvah. He shaved, that’s all. Please let him live his life without your lashon harah, rechilus or color commentary.

    If you are really concerned for a Jew, you don’t put him down, you daven for him and offer support.

  9. wow some people just don’t know how to take a joke! its not making fun of from jews! its not making fun of matisyahu! its not making fun of beards!

    its a little cartoon that is illustrating the obviously impossible, obviously overexaggerated, and obviously not the real reasons matisyahu shaved his beard.

    if it bothers you so much, maybe look inside yourself for something to work on.

  10. i thought these were cute cartoons making light of a situation people are taking a little too seriously. we can all use a little humor in our lives and judging from the angry comments above, it only strengthens my statement. laugh a little people.

  11. you should respect the fact that matisyahu is a baal teshuva and maybe he just trying to use his talents now that he’s frum! he’s a clean rapper
