“Broad City” star and co-creator Ilana Glazer canceled a political event that was scheduled to take place Thursday night at a Brooklyn synagogue after the building was vandalized with anti-Semitic graffiti, Deadline reports.
Glazer expressed concern for the safety of those attending the event after messages such as “Jew better B ready” were reportedly found scrawled throughout the building in black marker.
Glazer announced the event’s cancellation to the 200 people who had turned out, telling them, “We don’t feel safe.”
“We had to take care of these people,” Glazer said in an interview posted by Democracy Now. “I had this nightmare image in my head, and we had to get them all out.”
“Glazer was scheduled to speak at the Union Temple Synagogue in Brooklyn’s Prospect Heights neighborhood, along with moderator Amy Goodman and New York state Senate candidates Andrew Gounardes and Jim Gaughran,” Deadline notes.
New York police released a security photo of a suspect in the incident. You can see the NYPD tweet below …
