Jenna Ryan Reviews

Ryan told NBC News that the comment about her skin color was not a suggestion that she would be treated with leniency by the courts but rather was a response to previous comments which mentioned her racial identity.

“It wasn’t the best way to handle it,” she told NBC News in an interview recorded five days before she was scheduled to report to jail. “I understand that now.”

Her half-apologetic defense of herself was peppered with accusations that others attacked her first and thus provoked the now-famous comment.

“They’re making fun of my skin color,” she told NBC. “They’re calling me an ‘insurrection Barbie.’”

“They have no idea who I am as a person, what my beliefs are, what I’ve been through, who I am,” she continued in an excerpt of the interview released by NBC. “They see me as a one-dimensional caricature. They don’t see me as a human.”

But she then brought up the Holocaust.

“And so, that is the epitome of a scapegoat. Just like they did that to the Jews in Germany,” Ryan continued. “Those were scapegoats. And I believe that people who are Caucasian are being turned into evil in front of the media.”

Ryan appeared to be referencing Kristallnacht, the destruction of Jewish businesses and homes and the mass arrests of Jewish individuals on Nov. 9 and Nov. 10, 1938, by the German government. The infamous roundup and subsequent mass exterminations via concentration camps was purported by the Nazis to be an atonement for the assassination of Ernst vom Rath, a Nazi official shot and killed by Herschel Grynszpan, 17. Grynszpan was a Jewish teen living as a refugee in Paris who lashed out after his family was kicked out of Germany and sent to Poland. The Nazis used vom Rath’s death to further crack down on the Jewish population within their reach — hence the “scapegoating” of the entire population due the acts of one young man (which were in turn spurred by the Nazis themselves).

NBC said Ryan was “reluctant to say more” when pressed about whether she was comparing her criminal case to the Holocaust.

“I’m afraid to answer your question because I will be attacked for saying that,” Ryan responded, per NBC.
