‘Hollywood Hillbillies’ star: Jews are too smart for manual labor

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

This week saw the premiere of cable network REELZ’s new reality show, “Hollywood Hillbillies.” Not included in the episode—but available thanks to the generosity of the folks at TMZ—is this clip in which Mema, transplanted to LaLa Land (LA) from small-town Georgia, shares her feelings about Jews.

“I love Jews. I’ve never seen one that couldn’t get some s*** done,” Mema said after spending the day with her Rolls Royce-driving Jewish manager David Weintraub. “You never see a Jew doing manual labor. They’re all smart.”

More shocking than this admission is the fact that, after the success of “Honey Boo Boo” and “Duck Dynasty,” this show took so long to happen. A reality reboot of the classic “The Beverly Hillbillies” = genius.
