Erykah Badu’ shocking confession: ‘I see good in Hitler’
Anti-Defamation League chief Johnathan Greenblatt has called on Erykah Badu to issue an immediate apology for comments she made about Adolf Hitler in an interview with Vulture.
The American singer was asked about how she perceived antisemitism and even if she denied being antisemitic, she added “I saw something good in Hitler.”
The interview of the On & On singer was released on Wednesday (Jan. 24) and her declarations on the leader of the Nazi Party have rised hell everywhere.
Speaking about her humanist beliefs and her commitment to “see all sides simultaneously”, Badu told the magazine “Hitler was a wonderful painter.”
Challenged about her comment, she quickly added, “OK, he was a terrible painter. Poor thing. He had a terrible childhood. That means that when I’m looking at my daughter, Mars, I could imagine her being in someone else’s home and being treated so poorly, and what that could spawn. I see things like that. I guess it’s just the Pisces in me.”
