Mila Kunis Slammed with Racial Slur by Ukrainian Politician

She’s always been a sweet and adorable actress, so it’s hard to believe that Mila Kunis could be the target of a racist attack.

But that’s just what happened when Ukrainian politician Igor Miroschnichenko posted a Facebook message that named the “That 70s Show” starlet as a “zhydovka” or “dirty Jewess.”

Not to worry, though, as The Simon Wiesenthal Center has already petitioned Prime Minister Mykola Azarov to handle the situation.

The prominent human rights organization has demanded Azarov "speak out against the heinous anti-Semitic slur directed at Ukrainian-born actress Mila Kunis by MP Igor Miroshnichenko."

"Mila Kunis' family, like many thousands of other Ukrainian Jewish families, left the Ukraine in the first place because of anti-Semitism. Today she is a respected American actress, who is now owed an apology by the Ukraine. It is a tragedy that even after the Holocaust and the demise of the Soviet Union such hatred and anti-Semitism is still a force in the mainstream of your country."
