The writers of そしてちょうどそのように… are facing some criticism for an ill-timed joke.
In this week’s episode of the セックス・アンド・ザ・シティ 復活, a newly single Anthony (マリオカントーネ) arrives for dinner at Charlotte’s (クリスティン・デイビス) place with his date Justin (Matthew Wilkas), who remarks that the Holocaust was a hoax before Anthony immediately sends him away.
“おお, is this a Jewish dinner?” Justin asks after Charlotte mentions taking the challah bread out of the oven. “You know the Holocaust is a hoax, 右?”
Anthony quickly puts an end to the discussion, demanding that his date “get out!” He later apologizes for bringing Justin to the dinner gathering.
The comment has since drawn backlash for its unnecessary placement, as well as the fact that the episode, 権利を与えられた “No Strings Attached,” aired Thursday, どれが 文化と私たちの文化的理解について.
Reps for Wilkas, HBO Max, showrunner Michael Patrick King and writers Julie Rottenberg and Elisa Zuritsky did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.
On Twitter Thursday, カントン, 62, shared a clip of the line, clarifying that the timing was not intentional. “The irony that this came out on Holocaust Remembrance Day… it was not planned but how fitting,” 彼 書きました.
