Jews in Russia’s Tatarstan segment are objecting to a new ice cream called “Poor Jew.”
The ice cream cone, announced final month by a Slavitsa association in Naberezhnye Chelny, 600 miles easterly of Moscow, is wrapped in an picture of Israel’s flag.
Leonid Shteinberg, a personality of a Jewish village in Naberezhnye Chelny, has called a name “racist” and demanded a prolongation and sale be halted, Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty reported.
The city prosecutor’s bureau says it will examine a complaints.
In a amicable media post announcing a ice cream’s launch on Feb. 28, a association describes it as a “crusty horn” filled with chocolate- and prune-flavored ice cream and surfaced with peanuts.
“Trying all this tastiness, it turns out that he is not so ‘poor,’” a post asserts.
The Slavitsa association has been criticized formerly for formulating a chocolate ice cream named after then-President Barack Obama, that had a coupling depicting an African boy, and for fixing another ice cream with an racial offence for Ukrainians.
