Erykah Badu has found herself in the hot seat this week after she made some comments in a new interview with Vulture, which many people are deeming anti-Semitic and insensitive. In the new conversation, the singer suggested that she sees the “good” in Hitler and Bill Cosby. “I see good in everybody. I saw something good in Hitler,” revealed Badu to interviewer David Marchese. Stunned by her remarks, Marchese asked Badu to elaborate on her answer, to which she responded: “Hitler was a wonderful painter.” Though Badu admitted that her opinions may go against popular beliefs, she remains adamant in her stance and refuses to budge, despite the risk of being “crucified” for her statements.
