A video involving a joke about ID tattoos that were used in Nazi concentration camps has attracted quite a bit of attention on TikTok, the Algemeiner reports.
The video shows a passenger getting in a cab, with a caption on the screen saying “Jewish guy getting in my taxi” and with the song “No Scrubs” by TLC playing in the background.
As the driver then asks the passenger’s name, another subtitle states that the latter “rolls up sleeve to check”, followed by the driver lip-syncing the part of the song’s lyrics that says “No, I don’t want your number”.
The video was uploaded on April 28 by a UK resident named Bradley Brooker and has since been viewed over 600,000 times, accruing about 60,000 “likes” in the process.
“If you read through the comments on the video there have been Jewish people finding the funny side to it”, Brooker reportedly said this week regarding the matter. “It’s not me hating a religion — it’s just a joke.”
However, while some apparently described his clip on TikTok as “hysterical” and “creative”, a number of people have also taken a dim view of it and of the platform that hosted it.
