WATCH: What The Puck? Holocaust-Themed Ice Skating On Russian TV

The Jerusalem Post reports on today’s WTF moment (besides all the praise for Fidel Castro, of course).

..what happened on Russian television Saturday evening, after two “celebrity” ice skaters, donning Holocaust-era Jewish prison uniforms fitted with yellow stars of David, performed on the reality television show “Ice Age.”

Making matters more bizarre was the fact that as Tatiana Navka, along with her skating partner Andrew Burkovsjy, slided and glided across the ice, their performance was accompanied by “Beautiful that way” by Jewish Israeli singer Acinoam “Noa” Nini.

To make matters even worse, the Jerusalem Post reminds us this is not the first time the Russians have trivilized the Holocaust on TV.

In April, Russia’s version of “Dancing with the Stars” featured a dance number starring a Nazi officer searching for a young Jewish girl hiding behind a piano.

What is wrong with people?!
