Grafix Avenger speaks to the Jersey Journal, apologizes to any offended by satire

Grafix Avenger spoke to a member of the New Jersey Anti-Defamation League yesterday and after some heart to heart discussion issued an apology for any offense her satirical take on a 1934 movie poster may have had with people.

Katie Colaneri from the Jersey Journal got the scoop on everyone saying in part:

Following a conversation with Etzion Neuer, regional director for the New Jersey Anti-Defamation League, Pincus said later that she realized how her graphic may have caused offense and agreed to issue a letter of apology at Neuer’s request.

“I welcomed and accepted Ms. Pincus’ apology and from our conversation, it appears she understands why the incident was hurtful,” said Neuer.

Neuer said he first heard about the graphic through Mason who pointed out it out to him last week before Bajardi’s presentation before the council.

“I am genuinely sorry,” Pincus said this afternoon. “I did not mean to hurt anyone who’s genuine.”

The Anti-Defamation League is a pre-eminent Jewish organization well known in the United States for its defense of the Jewish people and to secure justice and fair treatment for all citizens alike.

“I want the chair” in German.
