About

Jews vs. Nazis Beer Pong is a variation on the popular drinking game in which the plastic cups are arranged in the shapes of a Star of David, a symbol of Judaism, and a swastika, a controversial symbol associated with Nazism. Since its emergence through social networking sites in 2011, the game has gained both popularity and notoriety for its controversial nature.

Origin

The Daily Dot[1] has traced one of the first mentions of Jews vs. Nazis Beer Pong to a photo tweeted by Twitter user Pure_Nonsense[2] on November 7th, 2011.



Spread

On January 24th, 2013, Redditor TrepidaciousFatGuy[5] posted a photo of the game along with detailed rules, which contained many insensitive references to the Holocaust such as:

“The Jews have the ’Anne Frank Cup,” and this ability allows them to pick any one of their cups and hide it anywhere in the room, but it has to be shootable, obviously."




The photo was featured on Coed[8] the same day and on Viral Viral Photos[7] on January 25th. The photo and game were featured in a post published on BroBible[6] on May 28th, 2013, titled “Jews vs. Nazis Beer Pong Exists and The Rules Are Pretty F*cked Up.” On February 19th, 2014, the rules to the game were added to Drinking Game Zone’s[10] Drinking Game Encyclopedia.

The game came to the attention of online news sites again in 2014, when the same photo was tweeted out by HSConfessionaI,[3] supposedly by a student from Cape Coral High School in Florida, on April 27th, 2014.[3] Within a month the photo had gained over 1,000 retweets and over 3,000 favorites.



On May 7th, Florida’s Fox4[9] published an article about the game which featured an interview with local Rabbi Yitzchok Minkowicz. He commented on the game, saying:

“As a rabbi, I like to look at the world as a beautiful place. So, my first assumption is let’s assume it’s just children that are immature with no ill intent, not trying to be malice. This is a wake up call. We are not doing enough of a job educating people to be nicer, kinder, more polite.”


On May 9th, 2014, Heeb Magazine published an article titled “Hot New Drinking Game: Jews vs. Nazis!” The game was featured on several sites on May 15th, including The Jewish Daily Forward[11] and The Daily Mail.[12]
