    His father was born in Calcutta, not “Kolkata”, which didn’t exist until 2001.

    If you’re going to try and gain support for yourself, because you’re so feeble minded you can’t fight your own battles, at least be accurate about what I said

  3. neiltennant says:

    his stepfather is Jewish right

    but also his biological father is Jewish

    STONE is anglicized from STEIN (Jewish surname from Germany and Eastern European )
