Jon Stewart Trashes 'Harry Potter' as 'Anti-Semitic,' Claims Goblins Represent Jews


Jon Stewart launched a broadside against the Harry Potter novels and movies, claiming in a recent episode of his podcast that they are “anti-semitic” because the goblin characters who run the fictional Gringotts Wizarding Bank are actually caricatures of Jews.

Stewart also accused author J.K. Rowling of embracing anti-semitic stereotypes. But his accusations met immediate pushback from those who said the comparisons are unfounded and that Stewart, who recently kicked off his new Apple TV+ series, is looking for easy publicity.

“Sometimes a goblin is just a goblin,” said Dave Rich, a frequent writer and commentator on anti-semitism on the political left.

Jon Stewart made his accusations against Harry Potter and J.K. Rowling in an episode of “The Problem with Jon Stewart.”
