NEW YORK-Former Giants running back and TV personality, Tiki Barber has compared his struggle with the media after he left his pregnant wife for a 23-year-old intern, to the struggle of Anne Frank who hid in an attic in Amsterdam to avoid the Nazis before finally being killed. CBS reports:

Barber said the media scrutiny forced him and Johnson into hiding – into the attic of the New Jersey house of his agent, Mark Lepselter.

“Lep’s Jewish,” Barber said, “and it was like a reverse Anne Frank thing.”

“A reverse Anne Frank thing”?

In the article, Wertheim immediately interjects a parenthetical, which perfectly assesses Barber’s ill-advised analogy: “He has the wit and smarts to make an Anne Frank allusion and the artlessness to liken himself–an adulterer trying to elude gossip columnists–to a Holocaust victim.”
