Meet Matthew Myers, Associate Director of Finance at Human Rights Watch.
A happy-go-lucky kind of guy, Matthew likes Sushi, the Amazing Race…and making vile Holocaust jokes.
“If you can’t laugh about the hair room at Auschwitz, get out.”
I am not sure what is sicker – the joke itself, or the fact he thinks having it on his Tinder profile (with mention of his HRW gig) will attract women.
And this is not the first time someone at Human Rights Watch has made light of the Holocaust. Back in 2009, Marc Garlasco was suspended with pay from his senior military analyst role with HRW following revelations of his Nazi fetish.
Ken sure knows how to pick ’em.
Please join me in demanding HRW take action about the latest antisemite in their employ.
Thanks to StandWithUs for the find.
Update: HRW have sent this response:
Thank you for your concern. We have just learned of this Tinder profile comment, which is antithetical to our values. We have suspended Matthew Myers pending an investigation.
