Mark Ruffalo has been one of the outspoken actors in Hollywood who have used their platform to voice international concerns. Earlier, Mark had stood firm by Palestine, often openly criticising Israel for its stance. However, he has rendered an apology on social media recently in the light of the ongoing Israel-Palestine conflict that has led to the death of over 200 people in Gaza, injuring many others.
Mark wrote on Twitter, “I have reflected & 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 & is being used to justify antisemitism here & abroad. Now is the time to avoid hyperbole."
Mark has been receiving a lot of hate on social media for going back on his views on the Israel-Palestine conflict. Some suggested that he did it because Israel is an ally of the USA and there was “pressure on him from his bosses at Disney" to not take a contrary stand.
Here is how some people trolled Mark for going back on his comments about the Israel-Palestine conflict.
