ASBURY PARK, N.J. (WCBS 880) -- A Jersey Shore mayor is being criticized over his response to an anti-Semitic tweet.

A tweet asking Brick Mayor John Ducey to do something about the parks and beaches saying they were being used and ruined by Hasidic and Orthodox Jews. 

The mayor responded by saying just call police with any problems. 

That produced a flood of tweets blasting Ducey for ignoring the anti-Semitisim in the sender's message. 

Ducey later condemned the tweet as bigoted.

He told the Asbury Park Press that he was trying to diffuse the situation and his response was misconstrued.
