Anti-Semitic Elmo Inspires ‘Good Wife’ Cameo

Costumed bear in Times Square calls show’s character a ‘dirty stinking Jew’

Print Email

Last night was Bill de Blasio’s much-awaited cameo on The Good Wife last night, which came in the form of a Taxi TV PSA that Nathan Lane can’t figure out how to mute. But viewers of the political drama, which stars the unstoppable Julianna Margulies and is loosely based on Eliot Spitzer’s relationship with his ex-wife Silda Wall Spitzer, got another ripped-from-the-headlines (ours, at least) surprise on last night’s episode: Anti-Semitic Elmo.

Well, not anti-Semitic Elmo himself—he was sentenced to a year in jail for trying to extort the Girl Scouts—but a fuzzy life-sized Times Square costumed bear based on him.

In the clip below, attorney Elsbeth Tascioni is visiting New York and excitedly takes a photo with the happy-looking bear when, to her surprise, he snarls that she’s a “dirty stinking Jew.”

Yikes.
