No, Mark Ruffalo, not you.
The Hulk was one of a small group of celebrities who actually shouted out Israel in Palestine instead of making a general statement calling for peace on both sides, voiced against violence.
But it changed when he posted a tweet apologizing for the previous tweet on Tuesday.
“I wanted to reflect on and apologize for a post suggesting that Israel is committing a “genocide” in the recent Israeli/Hamas fight,” he wrote. “It’s inaccurate, inflammatory, rude, and used to justify anti-Semitism at home and abroad. It’s time to avoid exaggeration.”
His previous tweets have yet to be posted, but it remains to be seen whether he will participate in the social media cleanup.
People were disappointed with his sudden turn and tried to get him right.
They also noted that he wasn’t the first celebrity to backtrack support for Palestine.
Model Bella Hadid, who was very vocal about the pro-Palestinian stance, posted a tweet on Instagram Stories and Twitter calling for “peace, coexistence and equality” with the flag of Israel in two states. And Palestine. Hotel heiress Paris Hilton posted a pro-Palestinian tweet before quickly deleting it for a more’neutral’ message.
Many Twitter users have said that Ruffalo’s change of opinion was probably due to the money (or the movie) being at stake.
It’s unfortunate, but not surprising, to see a handful of celebrities who have supported themselves from the Pro-Palestinian movement leaving their previous support messages behind.
