    (1) I most respectfully suggest that learners never say/write this term.

    (2) In fact, some people are trying to get it removed from dictionaries.

    I'd heard it but I think it was probably in some kind of Tarantino-style "gangster" film, where they generally get away with a lot of language that we definitely shouldn't use in real life.

    Re: jew me: What did michel jakson mean ?

    I have heard older people before say things like "He wanted $5000 for the car, but i Jewed him down to $4500."

    It's offensive. Don't use it.
