Katy Perry’s Dad Slams Jews

Evangelical preacher Keith Hudson, father to pop star Katy Perry, seems to have some anti-Semetic leanings. And he appears to have a special disdain for Los Angeles Jews. According to multiple reports, during a recent sermon to his congregation in Westlake, Ohio, Hudson said:

You know how to make the Jew jealous? Have some money, honey. You go to L.A. and they own all the Rolex and diamond places.

Walk down a part of L.A. where we live and it is so rich it smells. You ever smell rich? They are all Jews, hallelujah! Amen.

Poor Katy Perry. If this guy was your dad, you’d marry Russell Brand too.
