Controversial YouTuber Trisha Paytas has been sharing their journey of embracing Judaism over the past few months. Their online enemy and podcast host Ethan Klein is now bashing them for being anti-Semitic.
This comes after Paytas’ recent wedding to Moses Hacmon, Klein’s brother-in-law.
Trisha Paytas had not so long ago posted a video of themselves dancing on TikTok. The caption read:
“When u can’t finish conversion classes so u just pay to be Jewish.”
The H3 productions host slammed Paytas on the video sharing platform, saying:
“You don’t care enough about the culture to put in the actual work to do it the right way."
Ethan Klein also stated that they were being anti-Semitic as Paytas’ clip read that they “pay to be Jewish.” Ethan Klein said:
“It propagates the notion that Jews only care about money.”
Trisha Paytas responds to Ethan Klein’s accusations
The mukbang-YouTuber took to their YouTube channel and uploaded a nearly 20 minute long video, titled, “to Ethan and Hila.” Paytas was seen visibly upset and crying about the anti-Semitic accusations which were brought forward. Paytas said:
“Ethan and Hila are the only ones who have issues with me, Moses' entire family were just here, celebrating and happy. The reason they were not invited (to the wedding) because they could not stop talking, harassing, and obsessing over me, over us. They could not respect boundaries when I asked them to just please stop talking about me.”
“Calling me an anti-Semite and saying F them, he knows, he purposely, he lies all the time! He tried to say I've separated a family - I have always been good with Moses’ family.”
"When you make those statements of being an anti-Semite and awful things, he said about Moses and me, it’s really damaging."
Reacting to the family drama, a few tweets on Trisha Paytas' latest video read:
Trisha Paytas also accused Ethan Klein of gathering a hate-mob against them online, which they have mentioned in the past as well.
This is not the first time Trisha Paytas has been accused of appropriating Jewish culture. A Holocaust survivor responded to their TikTok videos as well.
