The following appeared in YWN ..... Some singer, I never heard of, Beri (which adult stills calls himself Beri?) Weber, .... followed the goyishe minhag of making a Singing Video..... but left a bunch of crap for the goyim to pick up ...
I am appealed at what I just saw, and feel the need to share it with your readers.
On Tuesday afternoon you published a video of a well-known singer dangerously being dragged down the street on a plank of wood in some type of music video ahead of Purim.
On the YWN Instagram account there were some that questioned calling this a “Chillul Hashem”.
Perhaps they will now change their minds.
After this despicable Chillul Hashem was caused yesterday, the group apparently decided to simply dump all their props that were used in the shooting of this movie on my block – on someones garden!
The attached photos and videos [POSTED BELOW] speak for themselves. I am appalled.
What’s even worse is the people who seem to have no issue with the stunt pulled yesterday.
“Why must YWN always degrade Jews having a good time?”
“Come ON – everyone shoots movies on public street!”
“This was no Chillul Hashem – get real”.
Those are some of the comments I have heard.
Of course people shoot movies on public streets. But they get PERMITS, and have safety precautions in place. Do you know that a Frum child was KILLED at a Hachnosas Sefer Torah in Boro Park 25 years ago after a rope snapped and struck the child in face? Beri Weber nearly got killed yesterday when he fell off the moving piece of wood while decked out in his Chassidih Levush as city buses packed with non-Jews looked on in horror.
What about the street that was damaged? Did you see the marks this prop dug into the pavement?
Where is the responsibility?
Aren’t we in Galus?
And then to top it all off, they go and dump their props onto a street corner – the wooden plank, ropes, empty wine bottles, popcorn etc?! And onto someone lawn, that they pay a gardener to mow every month!
The behavior of these people must be exposed or it will continue getting worse and worse. I gurantee no Rov in Flatbush was asked if this should be done.
We are in an age where “anything goes”.
We must yell and scream and show that good Ehrlich Yidden have nothing to do with this behavior.
I can predict that there will be those that find answers for this illegal dumping and bash my letter. Likely the same people that go on trips on Chol Hamoed and throw their filth everywhere.
I encourage people to read the article you published earlier today by Rabbi Yair Hoffman discussing Chillul Hashem. Some people seriously need to get a grip.
