A year ago photos of James dressed up in a SS uniform hat and giving a “sieg heil” were released. Now new disturbing images of the former West Coast Choppers owner have surfaced.
Us Weekly has discovered photos posted on Facebook by ex-employees of his company, West Coast Choppers, showing James driving a convertible in which the passenger is wearing an SS Security Officer hat and giving a Nazi salute.
Another photo from the set shows children’s book character Flat Stanley dressed as Hitler.
Anti-Defamation League rep Abraham Foxman says James’ taste “doesn’t make him an anti-Semite.”
His rep insists his client is not a bigot, claiming that James’ Nazi gear was a gag gift from his Jewish grandfather.
“He’s into history,” an insider explains. “The swastika deal is to scare people. It’s part of biker culture.”
