Legendary comedian Jerry Seinfeld heckled again in Sydney over Israel support

Jerry Seinfeld has been called a “hack” and a “fraud” by pro-Palestinian protesters interrupting his second show in Sydney on Tuesday.

Footage from inside ICC Sydney Theatre showed two men standing up and yelling at the legendary comedian, calling out “free Palestine” and raised the Palestinian flag.
