Jon Stewart called the goblins that run Gringotts bank in the Harry Potter universe an anti-semitic trope on his The Problem with Jon Stewart podcast
He questioned why J.K. Rowling chose to ‘throw Jews in there to run the f***ing underground bank’ in a world where people ‘can ride dragons and have pet owls’
Rowling has been mired in controversy since June 2020, when she posted a series of tweets about the transgender community
She was not in attendance for HBO’s 20th anniversary ‘Return to Hogwarts’ reunion special, which featured interviews with numerous cast members
on Stewart has slammed already-embattled J.K. Rowling for the goblins that run Gringotts bank in her Harry Potter film series, calling them out as an anti-Semitic trope.
The former host of The Daily Show raised the issue on the December 16 episode of his podcast, The Problem with Jon Stewart.
Stewart, who is Jewish, questioned why Rowling chose to ‘throw Jews in there to run the f***ing underground bank’ in a fictional world where people ‘can ride dragons and have pet owls.’
The Harry Potter author is no stranger to controversy, and has been at the center of an ongoing row over her comments regarding transgender issues.
Stewart characterized the goblins as an obvious anti-Semitic trope, and questioned why more people haven’t done the same. Pictured is a movie still from the first Harry Potter film
Stewart, 59, said the banker goblin characters are based on caricatures of Jews from The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, an infamous anti-semitic text that purports to show a Jewish plan for world domination.
‘Here’s how you know Jews are still where they are,’ Stewart said in the episode before bemoaning how those who he’s spoken to have been reluctant to acknowledge the resemblance.
‘I just want to show you a caricature. And they’re like, “Oh, look at that, that’s from Harry Potter!” And you’re like, “No, that’s a caricature of a Jew from an antisemitic piece of literature.” J.K. Rowling was like, “Can we get these guys to run our bank?”‘
