People Are Coming After Gigi Hadid Over Pro-Palestine Tweets
Gigi Hadid defended her Palestinian heritage on Twitter, speaking out in support of the Palestinians killed by Israeli troops at Gaza border earlier this week.
“I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. For me, this is not about religion or one against the other – it’s about the greed. #FreePalestine #freegaza #coexist,” she wrote in the Tweet.
Stand With Us, a non-profit pro-Israel education and advocacy organization, replied to her, saying, “So you’re saying that Jews who want to live in their homeland in peace and defend against shooting and bombing attacks are “greedy”!? Seriously? That’s the argument u wanna go with today?”
“I didn’t call Jews greedy, but anyone who can’t look past their own ego will twist it that way,” Gigi explained. “I’m saying coexistence (Palestinians & Israelis, as they once before lived…) is to not live in greed. That’s all I’d hope for. I don’t agree with the violence from either side.”
She continued, “Further & finally- I’m just gunna start keeping my opinions to myself. social media is one of the most frustrating & twisted things. Don’t be surprised when your faves drop off, it’s a double-edged sword. Everything’s taken & read the wrong way bc tweets can never show real depth.”
You’ll all see whatever side you want. My intent is never to further separate groups in hatred- I live my life loving everyone regardless of religion/race. So I will say again for the last time, I’m not anti-anyone. I am only pro- coexistence. That is all. #freepalestine
