This jerk had nerve to say he doesn’t blame Hitler!
The racist camerman, Anthony Aurelius, didn’t realize he’d kept the tape rolling while chatting with his assistant during a central London wedding shoot last year.
“Mental, Israeli dancing, isn’t it? There’s a real feeling of like, they’re better than everybody else. Jewish,” Aurelius said in the video.
“That’s why Holocaust,” his assistant said.
“I don’t think I blame Hitler,” Aurelius replied cooly, while filming the bride.
Stan and Claudia Gocman, of Edgware, London, were shocked to find the muttered remarks in an unedited version of their wedding video.
“It’s completely anti-Semitic and ignorant. At first, I was really upset — but then I was furious,” Claudia, 27, told The Mirror.
But that wasn’t the only problem the couple had with the videographer.
At first, Aurelius sent them the video from another couple’s wedding. It took nine months for the videographer to deliver his finished product. But that was so terribly done — missing important moments and capturing backs instead of faces — that the newlyweds agreed to pay extra for the raw, unedited film.
That’s where they heard Aurelius’ racist rants.
He bashed the happy couple and their guests during the reception, making fun of what he called “Israeli dancing.”
At the same time, he called Jewish people the “meanest people in the world.”
“Not a lot of niceness about them is there? Very little warmth,” he said.
He also exposed his bigoted stance toward Jewish women.
“Some of the Jewish women are very beautiful to look at … But I can tell you, they’d be right f—–g cows. Very f—–g snooty, they’d be a pain in the arse,” he said in the video. “Not a very attractive bride at all.”
“They think they’re better than everybody else because they’re from Israel,” Aurelius continued.
The couple thinks he might have held a vendetta against them for choosing his “basic package” instead of the more expensive options. They considered filing charges, but decided against it after finding out that Aurelius’ video business had shut down.
Aurelius later sent the couple a handwritten apology.
“I see now my character is weak and need to look at myself,” the camerman wrote. “I am deeply sorry I offended you.”
He enclosed a check with a full refund.
The Gocmans said their memories of the wedding were scarred by Aurelius’ hateful words.
“He’s a disgusting little man. I can’t even stand to watch the video, it makes me so angry,” Claudia said.
SMH. No wonder he went out of business. Good riddance!
