An advertisement for the film Denial which will open in cinemas later this month has been defaced with antisemitic graffiti. A photograph of Jewish actress Rachel Weisz, who plays Jewish historian Deborah Lipstadt, was defaced with the word “B-Witch” and a star of David. Other actors were labelled as “Creep”. The film retells the story of how antisemitic Holocaust denier David Irving sued Lipstadt and her publisher for libel after she called him an antisemitic Holocaust denier in one of her books. He lost and the case bankrupted him.
The defaced poster was reported by Shomrim North West London, a Jewish volunteer neighbourhood watch patrol.
