Hollywood celebrities are continuing to face harsh criticism for showing support for Palestine. Some have apologized, others are still holding their ground

Actor Mark Ruffalo has recently apologized for his social media posts, saying that he wrongfully accused Israel of committing genocide against Palestinians.

While some have praised his apology, others were quick to speculate that the actor has been forced into a compromise regarding his political stance on the matter.



Ruffalo tweeted that he had "reflected and 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 and is being used to justify anti-Semitism here and abroad."



Both American Jewish organizations and mosques have reported a surge in hate crimes amid the escalation in violence between Israel and Palestine.

In a tweet on May 11, Ruffalo compared Israel to former South African apartheid state and called for economic sanctions.



Some fans are suggestion that the actor has been "intimidated into silence" and "backtracking." While others condemned him for retracting his staement.

Previously, models Gigi and Bella Hadid and British-Albanian singer Dua Lipa have also been accused of antisemitism for taking the Pro-Palestine stance.
