Jewish organizations supported Bradley Cooper amid criticism of his nickname in “The Maestro.” According to the TMZ portal, the actor had to use him to play the role of the famous composer Leonard Bernstein. After the trailer was released, some netizens began criticizing Cooper, claiming his artificial nose was a manifestation of anti-Semitic stereotypes.
The American Jewish Committee, however, said it did not view Cooper’s actions as offensive. They stressed that the image depicted in the film did not offend or humiliate the Jewish community. In the history of cinema, Jews are often portrayed as big, hook-nosed, brutal cartoon characters in anti-Semitic and propaganda films. However, the Anti-Defamation League said that when it comes to this film, a biography about the legendary conductor, the creators did not intend to offend or humiliate the Jewish community.
It was previously reported that a scandal broke out due to Bradley Cooper’s false nose in the movie “Maestro”.
