Corbyn’s anti-racism interviewer sent tweets joking about Jews and Hitler

Mr Vujanic is sorry for his tweets about Hitler and Jews. He wrote: “Hitler was playing the Jew challenge game. Jew goals are my speciality."

    Jeremy Corbyn has appeared alongside a YouTube star who sent tweets containing the N-Word and jokes about Jews and Hitler.

    The Labour leader was interviewed by David Vujanic in a video published on Thursday.

    The pair attended a ‘Show Racism the Red Card’ event where they discussed Mr Corbyn’s support for the charity.

    However, according to the Guido Fawkes site, in a series of tweets in 2012 Mr Vujanic joked about Hitler and Jews, writing: “Hitler was playing the Jew challenge game. Jew goals are my speciality.

    “I bet if Hitler was alive and did a little Douige [a popular dance move] everyone would forget about the whole genocide thing.”

    Other tweets included jokes about black men dating fat white women.

    Mr Vujanic apologised for his tweets describing them as “vile” and unrepresentative of his views today. 

     

    A spokesperson for Jeremy Corbyn said Mr Vujanic was right to apologise.

    "David Vujanic's old tweets were absolutely vile and he is right to apologise for them and recognise that hate and discrimination have no place in our society," he said.
