Tokyo Olympics opening ceremony director fired over Holocaust joke

The Telegraph says the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games has been plunged into turmoil after the show director was fired over a joke he made about the Holocaust.

Kentaro Kobayashi, who was partly in charge of the curtain-raiser, was dismissed after facing anti-Semitism allegations over a comment he made in a comedy act in 1998 resurfaced.

According to multiple Japanese newspaper reports, Kobayashi made light of the mass murder of six million Jews by saying, “Let’s play Holocaust”.
