Chicago, IL - TV Station Apologizes For Using Yellow 'Jude' Star For Yom Kippur Segment
Chicago, IL - WGN-TV in Chicago is apologizing for running an image of a Nazi symbol during a report on the highest Jewish holiday of the year.
The image was displayed on the screen Tuesday as anchor Tom Negovan spoke about the Jewish Day of Atonement, Yom Kippur. The display of the image of a yellow star patch that the Nazis forced Jews in Europe to wear during World War II created a flurry of comments on social media and WGN responded with an apology.
In the statement , WGN General manager Greg Easterly and News Director Jennifer Lyons says the station “failed to recognize that the artwork we chose to accompany the story contained an offensive symbol.”
Easterly and Lyons says they were embarrassed and were investigating how the symbol was used.
