Mila Kunis has been TARGETED by a Ukrainian politician. And it is not being smiled upon in the Jewish community.
Igor Miroshnichenko wrote a letter slurring at Ashton Kutcher's girlfriend, calling the Ukrainian born-Jew a "zhydovka."
Now, if you don't know what it means… all you need to know is this — it's been used as a slur against Jews since the Holocaust.
Unfortunately, the Ukrainian government says it's OK since their dictionary defines the term without slur intentions. But El Lay's famous Simon Wiesenthal Center didn't like that, so they protested in a letter to the Ukraine Prime Minister, asking for condemnation of the remarks.
They insist the term is an:
"insidious slur invoked by the Nazis and their collaborators as they rounded up the Jews to murder them at Babi Yar and in the death camps."
Yeah… that is NOT cool. We don't care what the dictionary says! We all know CONNOTATIONS can take on a different meaning… and clearly that's what protestors feel with this one. C'mon now…
No word from Mila yet. Surely she's just trying to rise above it all, though.
