In a scene, Mario Cantone, who plays Anthony Marentino in the series, is seen bringing Justin, his date, to dinner.

Coming across the preparations, done my Charlotte York (played by Kristin Davis) and her husband Harry Goldenblatt (helmed by Evan Handler), Justin says, “Is this a Jewish dinner? You know the Holocaust is a hoax, right?”

Taking to social media, fans blasted the latest episode of the show. Taking to Twitter, one user wrote, “The Holocaust moment. I’m speechless. Did they have to include that? #AndJustLikeThat”

Another fans slammed the series, “#AndJustLikeThat I can’t believe they allowed the scene where Anthony’s date said ‘the Holocaust is a hoax,’” reads the Tweet.

“You’d think after 23 years the writers would know what ISN’T appropriate. Especially considering in Australia it’s International Holocaust Remembrance Day,” it added.
