Is 'Wonder Woman' Star Gal Gadot Staying Low-Key Following Controversial Tweet?

Wonder Woman actress Gal Gadot is reportedly staying low profile after she made a controversial post on Twitter this week.

Gal Gadot, who plays Wonder Woman, caused quite a stir this week when she took to Twitter to post, “Israel deserves to live as a free and safe nation,” as well as expressing her sincerest condolences.

She’s reportedly agreed to remain silent for the time being as high-explosive bombs begin to fall on Gazan homes and a surge of anti-Arab violent acts hits Israel.

As a result of the backlash, Gadot limited comments on Twitter and hasn’t made a post since. We may not be hearing from her for a while, too, as insider Daniel Richtman reports she is attempting to maintain a low profile, which is reasonable.

It’s unclear if she made the decision herself or was forced to by an (undoubtedly unhappy) agent/publicist, but with the circumstance for Palestinians and Arabs in Israel becoming increasingly dire, we don’t need remarks from a former IDF soldier.

On the contrary, entertainers, music stars, and actors, who have shared supportive messages for Palestine have sparked controversies.

The Weeknd, Cara Delevingne, Halsey, Susan Sarandon, Mark Ruffalo, Trevor Noah, and Zayn Malik (amongst many others) were disingenuously confronted by a viral post that said “we keep the receipts,” suggesting that trying to stand up to injustice might result in career harm.

We don’t believe Gal Gadot would suffer long-term repercussions as a result of this, but after her famously bad cover of John Lennon‘s Imagine and this ill-advised tweet, she might be hesitant to share something remotely political in the future. But, hey, you should never disregard Hollywood A-listers’ ignorance and ego.
