Gal Gadot Speaks About Backlash Following Release of Tone Deaf ‘Imagine’ Video

In March, Gal Gadot was called out as tone deaf after singing John Lennon’s “Imagine” amid the pandemic. Now she’s opening up about the experience.

“Sometimes, you know, you try and do a good deed and it’s just not the right good deed,” she told Vanity Fair. “I had nothing but good intentions and it came from the best place, and I just wanted to send light and love to the world.”

In the video, Gal partnered with Kristen Wiig, Mark Ruffalo, Will Ferrell, Natalie Portman, Sia, Norah Jones and other elites for the sing-along montage.

“I started with a few friends, and then I spoke to Kristen [Wiig],” she explained. “Kristen is like the mayor of Hollywood. Everyone loves her, and she brought a bunch of people to the game.”

“I’ve always hated this song. Imagine no possessions’ sung by some of the wealthiest people in the world,” one Twitter user wrote at the time.

Another wrote, “BOO, donate if you really care abt the world rn.”

Gal explained that the video was her idea and that she takes responsibility for it, saying, “I can only say that I meant to do something good and pure, and it didn’t transcend.”

We love you, Gal. We thought it was a great video.
