Katy Perry’s Father Criticized for Jewish Comments

Katy Perry Father - The singer’s father, Keith Hudson, is being criticized for comments made during a church service in Ohio over Jewish people, and that has opened the eyes of many on what kind of parents they have been to their daughter, as they announce that the recent divorce from Russell Brand is nothing more than a blessing from God.

Hudson, a preacher at ‘Church on the Rise’, an evangelist church, asked his congregation, “You know how to make the Jew jealous?” he asked the congregation, “Have some money, honey. You go to L.A. and they own all the Rolex and diamond places.”

And that’s not all, he went on with, “Walk down a part of L.A. where we live and it is so rich it smells. You ever smell rich? They are all Jews, hallelujah! Amen.”

Hudson and his wife Mary recently called Perry’s split from Brand a blessing from God.

“I’m sure Katy is trending on the Internet just to get you to church tonight,” the singer’s mother said during a sermon last week.

The Anti-Defamation League has come out and said his words were “anti-Semitic,” and “a reminder that the age-old stereotypes are alive and well and continue to bubble up to the surface in many segments of society.”

“We have made much progress in this country in terms of religiously based anti-Semitism. That’s why this manifestation is so disturbing. It is always much worse when it comes out on a religious platform — when an individual who is looked up to as a religious leader gives the old anti-Semitic stereotypes a patina of renewed credibility,” National Director of the ADL, Abraham H. Foxman said in the statement.

Foxman, added of the parents of the famous singer, “Katy Perry is blameless for her parents’ behavior, and it is unfortunte that her good name is now attached to her father’s words.”
