Somebody vandalized his Wikipedia page back in August and wrote he is Jewish. It’s still there.
Add Serbian to his ethnicity.
Is he Serbian?
Montenegrins are usually considered a subgroup of Serbian, in the same way as Albanians from Kosovo are still Albanian.
Try telling them that, lol.
@madman, are you trolling Montenegrins?
It’s very possible that his grandparents identified as ethnically Serbian on censuses and immigration records. I haven’t found any yet though.
He always reminded me of this guy from House of 1000 Corpses, at least in looks and voice (not the hair, though).
I always imagine Michael shouting, “hope you like what you see!,” just like in the movie.
