Seinfeld Producer Calls Out Steve Bannon For Getting Rich Off Of Jews



Peter Mehlman, a Seinfeld producer and writer, has slammed Steve Bannon for making money off of Jewish humor. Bannon was credited as a producer on the hit 90s comedy and reportedly made a great deal of money off of a special royalties deal which he struck.

Steve Bannon, who will serve as senior advisor to President Trump when he takes office, has been closely affiliated with the racist alt right movement and accused of Antisemitism by the ADL.


The mastermind behind such classic Seinfeld bits like “The Yada Yada” and “The Bubble Boy” made the comments in an interview with The Guardian. Peter Mehlman was incensed that a man who described as a raging anti-Semite made “all this money off a show that’s associated with Jewish humor – that’s pretty galling.”




Mehlman was dismissive of Bannon’s claims that he does not hate Jews saying, “If he’s not antisemitic what do you have to do to be considered antisemitic? Shoot Woody Allen?”

As for how Steve Bannon made all that money off of Seinfeld, Peter Mehlman said, “He made a ton of money. It was a smart decision. It doesn’t make him any less miserable as a human being.”


Mehlman also posted a humorous op ed piece in the Los Angeles Times titled “A list of words that trigger Post Traumatic Election Stress Disorder.

Peter Mehlman is currently producing the new hit sitcom “Son of Zorn” on Fox.
