Pro-Israeli fans have attacked celebrities for posts expressing solidarity with Palestinians
Selena Gomez is the latest celebrity to express solidarity with Palestinians suffering under Israels brutal assault of Palestinians in Gaza
The young pop star posted a message on Instagram on Friday urging her followers to pray for those families and babies today.
While many of her fans praised her post, the singer was attacked by pro-Israeli fans and unfollowed by many.
On Tuesday, Barbados-born pop star Rihanna posted #FreePalestine on her Twitter feed, but deleted it eight minutes later after she received a barrage of replies criticising her.
Instead she posted a picture of a Palestinian and Israeli boy hugging with the caption, Lets pray for peace and a swift end to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict! Is there any hope?
Pro-Israeli fans have viciously attacked celebrities that post messages in solidarity with Palestine.
Just last week the British band Coldplay received 12,000 comments within a day, after posting a link on their Facebook page for a music video by OneWorld entitled Freedom for Palestine.
Many of them contained promises to boycott the band, but other comments were praising the band for its stance.
Is there any particular reason this non-entity’s opinion matters?
Perhaps Selena Gomez needs to have her house attacked with rocket fire every 5 seconds..she has 24 hour security protection..she sure talks a lot of nonsense for someone who is constantly protected
Another celebrity airhead tweets.
She's out of rehab this week, so yes her opinion matters.
because she is Just Beiber’s ex-Sherpa?
She dated Bieber.
She must be a stune-ing beauty then.
Her claim to fame is that she boned Bieber..wow what a huge accomplishment
More likely she just carried his baggage
In specific, it doesn’t matter, but it is demonstrates something that is important. Namely, that media propaganda about Israel is starting to make inroads.
I thought she was famous before him. Did she ever date Donald Sterling?
LOL. I fell into the trap.
Maybe she was the original “Silly Rabbit” V Stiviano became the 2nd
She was a regular on the ‘Barney’ (purple dinosaur) show and then the lead on a Disney Channel show. She was a Jonas brothers squeeze too.
Oh, the thing learned from grandchildren!
I could give runny shit what these overpaid crybabies think about anything
I always knew Barney was an anti-Semite.
