Top 40 singer Sir Ivan (Ivan Wilzig of South Florida, son of late millionaire banker Siggi Wilzig and World Erotic Art Museum owner Naomi Wilzig) has just released a music video, Kiss All The Bullies Goodbye, featuring Taylor Dayne.
“While my grandfather in the textile business negotiated for the price of hides with a German farmer outside the barn, the farmer's anti-Semitic sons held my father over a meat grinder inside laughing and shouting: ‘It's time to make Jewburgers, let's make Jewburgers.’ Kicking and screaming my father freed himself and ran away. I never met that grandfather. He was beaten to death in Auschwitz. It all started with Bullying!” Wilzig posted Friday on Facebook.
Sir Ivan has become an LGBT rights activist and in 2012 pledged $100,000 to suicide prevention group Trevor Project. Two years ago, he Tweeted a call to boycott singer Chris Brown after the R&B artist threatened to shoot out gay singer Frank Ocean.
