MGM Resorts To Change Security Guard Uniforms After Jewish Woman Complains of Holocaust Imagery

MGM Resorts International plans to redesign its security guard uniforms after a Jewish woman complained, saying that they evoke Holocaust imagery.

On July 13, June Scharf was attending a comedy show at the MGM Northfield Casino near Cleveland when she spotted the MGM security guard uniform: a yellow polo shirt with a 6-point star badge.



“It’s a real trigger,” she told the Las Vegas Review Journal. “You see something like that and you stop in your tracks…It’s something we directly associate with a time, a place and a tragedy.”

Starting in 1938, Jewish people in Germany and other Nazi-occupied countries were forced to wear yellow identification badges with the 6-point Star of David and the word “Jew” inscribed in the center, according to the Holocaust Center. While the star on the MGM uniform has a security badge image, for Scharf, the uniforms triggered painful images of her Jewish family members (on her grandfather’s side), who were persecuted by Nazis.

“I spoke out because the badge set against a yellow background is extremely evocative of the Nazi mistreatment of Jewish people in Germany,” Scharf tells Yahoo Lifestyle. “I have family members who perished in the Holocaust, so I feel close to that period in history and the long shadow that it casts.”

1. What was she doing at a comedy show?

Someone so ridiculously easily triggered should probably...oh nevermind I forgot comedy has been neutered by harpies like her as well.
