The organizers of a Long Island student robotics contest have denounced a volunteer judge who was filmed uttering an antisemitic remark during last weekend’s competition.
“What was said is disgraceful and has no place in society, let alone at a youth event,” tweeted FIRST LEGO League. “Comments such as this will never be tolerated.”
We are aware of the remark. What was said is disgraceful and has no place in society, let alone at a youth event. As such, this volunteer will no longer be welcomed back as a volunteer in any capacity for any future FIRST events. Comments such as this will never be tolerated.

Parents and community members had expressed outrage following the incident in which a judge commented, “God d*** Jews,” to a fellow judge in response to a student presentation that mentioned a building owned by the United Hebrew Community of New York.
FIRST LEGO League also vowed that that the offending judge would not be welcomed at future events “in any capacity.”
