Judd Apatow Reads Our Blog (Or Slate)

I mean, who can blame the guy, right?

Judd Apatow, promoting his new film, Funny People (Which I’m so confused by. The previews make the movie look horrible but I just read a fantastic review for it in The New Republic), on The Daily Show last night, the director called out Jon Stewart for not using his real last name.

Of course, I wrote about this very subject last week (after stealing the topic idea from Slate). If you missed it, I question why the Jewish community isn’t bothered by Jon Stewart not going by his real name, Leibowitz, when he is so obviously Jewish.

To dismiss me is one thing. I’m a nobody. But to get it from Apatow? Jon Stewart is really starting to feel the pressure.
