Mark Ruffalo changes his stance on Palestine Israel issue
On Monday Actor Mark Ruffalo issued an apology for suggesting Israel was guilty of committing “genocide” when speaking out against the recent fighting between Israel and Hamas.
Ruffalo tweeted, “I have reflected & wanted to apologize for posts during the recent Israel/Hamas fighting that suggested Israel is committing ‘genocide’. It’s not accurate, it’s inflammatory, disrespectful & is being used to justify antisemitism here & abroad. Now is the time to avoid hyperbole.”
The tweet comes as a shock as many replied their disappointment, urging him to revert to his original stance. As he was vocal about Palestinians. So do we blame Deep Pockets?
In replies, people called him out for his sudden change. One said,
“You should tell the families of the 200+ murdered Palestinians in Gaza that were declared enemy combatants in the latest IDF propaganda that their occupiers aren’t actually committing ethnic cleansing when they “mowed the lawn” last week.
Moreover, a user said that it is not a Hollywood script, it is reality.
Marvel fan shows disappointment
A Marvel fan added, “HULK SORRY FOR ISRAEL TWEET. HULK HATE VIOLENCE OF ALL KIND. HULK THINK BOTH SIDES HAVE POINT AND PRAY FOR TWO-STATE SOLUTION EVEN THOUGH HULK NO KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS. IS COMPLICATED ISSUE HULK STILL NEED DO RESEARCH ON. PLEASE NO CANCEL HULK.”
Furthermore, another user also commented, “no, you were right the first time — see this heat so of the attacks on Gaza, and it’s such a shame that you’ve chosen to conflate criticism of the state of Israel’s atrocities with anti-Semitism. It isn’t and should never be used to justify racism. You are part of the problem.”
