Jeffrey Tamboo is the star of “The Mindy Project,” the NBC sitcom about a young Jewish family who moves to New York City in the 1980s.
The “Mindy” star, a longtime critic of Israel, said he has not yet been asked to leave his seat in a movie theatre because he is Jewish.
“But we have the right to speak, and we’re going to do so, and I’m not going to be bullied by anyone.
But I’m going to tell you what I think,” Tambor said Thursday on NBC’s “Today” show.
“I think that it’s not our fault.
We are the victims.
You know, I’m a Jew, and this is my community, and they’re the people who have hurt me and my family. “
And we’re not the only ones, either.
You know, I’m a Jew, and this is my community, and they’re the people who have hurt me and my family.
“We’re going in the opposite direction, and in the face of adversity, we’re gonna fight back. “
“This is America, and you gotta fight for what’s right. “
And the people, the Jewish community, the people of this country, are not going anywhere.” “
This is America, and you gotta fight for what’s right.
And the people, the Jewish community, the people of this country, are not going anywhere.”
Tambor told the Today show he would like to take his seat on the first row of the theater and speak.
Tambor was not in attendance, and was scheduled to appear on “Saturday Night Live” as part of the “SNL” cast.
Tambo, who is Jewish, said “Mindies” was not about him.
“If you ask me to speak on the ‘Mindy’ set, I wouldn’t do it,” he said.
“Because I don’t know who the heck I’m speaking to.
I’m just telling you the truth.”
Tambo’s remarks came after a string of incidents of anti-Semitism by Hollywood and other members of the entertainment industry that prompted calls for a boycott of the industry.
Earlier this year, “The Weinstein Company,” which produces “The Big Short” and “The Social Network,” issued a statement saying it was “committed to supporting those who are impacted by the ongoing anti-Jewish and anti-Israel sentiment in Hollywood and beyond.”
The Weinstein Company’s statement also said the company had no affiliation with Tambor’s production company, “Mindie,” and had no comment to make about his remarks.
Tambors wife, actress Lacey DiPasquale, told the Washington Post that she was “disgusted” with Tambo.
“He has a long history of attacking Jews and Jewish people and Jewish companies and Jewish institutions,” she said.
Tambos remarks come after the boycott of Israeli products, which started after a campaign by the anti-Israeli group Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS), led by actor Harry Belafonte.
The boycott campaign has since spread to the Hollywood and the food industry, where a slew of companies have removed products made by Israeli companies, including Levi Strauss and Gap.
But the boycott movement has also spread to other industries, including the entertainment business, which has become a hub for anti-Semites in recent years.
Tambour has received criticism from other celebrities and other prominent Jewish figures over his views, including former “Saturday Live” cast member Eddie Murphy and comedian Bill Maher.
In a statement issued in May, Maher called Tambor a “bigoted Jew” and said that he should “go to jail.”
“As a Jew and as an actor, you know that being Jewish is a very important part of who you are and that is something that has to be acknowledged and it is something we must be able to accept,” he wrote.
“The best way to fight anti-semitism is to make a stand and I urge you to stand up for what is right and stand with your Jewish community.”
Tambor has been a critic of the Israeli government and Israel in general, and he was featured in a documentary by former Israeli Ambassador to the U.S. Ron Dermer that included statements critical of Israel.
In 2011, Tambo was one of four prominent American Jews to join a boycott campaign against the settlement of Maale Adumim in the West Bank.
But in an interview with CNN last year, Tambor again said that Israel is the “number one enemy of Israel” and that the boycott campaign was not meant to hurt the country.
Tambit’s remarks come at a time when the Boycott, Divest, Sanctions movement is gaining steam.
Last week, President Donald Trump signed an executive order that directs the Department of Justice to investigate whether businesses that sell Israeli products are violating the Anti-Defamation League’s (ADL) anti-boycott statute. The
