Tiki Barber is not an anti Semite. He is however, an idiot. Just when I thought I could not lose any more respect for this jerk off, he has outdone himself. This guy needs to stop talking in public. Not only should he stop talking, but I would also suggest he never leaves his house. Just stay home Tiki, and reflect on what you have become.
As a bit of a back-story, Tiki Barber was married to Ginny Cha. They have been married for eleven years and have two sons together, ages 6 and 7. Ginny is 8 months pregnant with twins when Tiki announces that he is leaving her for a 23 year old intern that he has been having a sexual relationship since she was 21.
This guy is a pig of epic proportions and qualifies for the Douchelord club of which Tiger Woods is the Founder, Arnold Schwarzenegger is the President, and John Edwards is the Treasurer. These men are shameful and would be mortified by their behavior if they were not so stupid. Tiki Barber is on the fast track to career suicide.
But wait, just when I thought he could not be more disgusting, he topped himself. In speaking about the stress and pressure he felt when he left his wife for his whore, he went to stay with his agent Mark Lepselter. In talking about that time Barber said, “Lep’s Jewish and it was like a reverse Anne Frank thing. Really? Could he be this idiotic?
Abe Foxman from the ADL said, “The analogy to Anne Frank is not funny, it is outrageous and perverse. Anne Frank was not hiding voluntarily. Before she perished at age 15 in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, she hid from the Nazis for more than two years, fearing every day for her life. The Frank family’s experiences, as recorded in Anne’s dairy, are a unique testimonial to the horrors of the Holocaust, and her life should never be debased or degraded by insensitive and offensive analogies.”
Lepselter is clearly applying to join the Douchelord Club himself by saying that Tiki was trapped in the attic for a week. he has no issues with Jews because he even visited Israel a few years ago and was a guest of the President. Mr. Lepselter, your client is a moron and so are you. You may be even more of a douche as you are Jewish and defending him and his remarks.
To be fair, I am sure Mr. Barber was not actually comparing his experience to that of Anne Frank. However, there is no way what he said cannot be taken as offensive. It was stupid and hurtful. For a man who is trying to rebuild his career and reputation, this was not the way to go. Tiki Barber needs to spend less time being an idiot, and more time keeping the faith.
