British pop star, Dua Lipa, has been blasting an ad in the New York Times that called her antisemitic for her support of Palestine.

Lipa said,” Rabbi Shmuley Boteach’s World Values Network paid the New York Times for a full-page ad that appeared in Saturday’s main section of the newspaper.”

The sprawling ad referred to Lipa, Gigi, and Bella Hadid as “mega-influencers” who have “accused Israel of ethnic cleansing.” It further accused them of “denouncing the Jewish state.”

Dua Lipa is a native of London with a Muslim heritage.

The ad also features images of the singer and the Hadid sisters, who have both Dutch and Palestinian heritage. “Condemn them now,” it stated in bold letters.

The World Values Network shared similar views on its website, calling Dua Lip and the Hadids’ antisemitic.

The 25-year-old British singer responded to the ad through social media, criticizing the network for misconstruing her stance and wrongfully accusing her of being antisemitic. 

Dua even shared a post on her Instagram Stories to further explain her stance.

On the other hand, Gigi and Bella Hadid have been very vocal in their support of Palestine, their father’s homeland.

Bella even participated in a protest march in New York to support Palestine.

There were rumors that top brands like Dior had canceled their contract with Bella Hadid. However, Gigi quelled the news on her Instagram by sharing a post from Diet Prada to make it clear that Dior had taken no such step.

Many other celebrities, including Zayn Malik, Mark Ruffalo, Roger Waters, and The Weeknd, have expressed support for Palestinians.
