Twitterati calls out the Israeli government for being aggravated over a claim Bella Hadid didn’t even make

As soon as the tweet was uploaded on the social platform, Twitterati took to defend Bella Hadid's statement.

Recently supermodel Bella Hadid has been using her social platform reach and authority to highlight the ongoing atrocities by Israel’s Defence Forces (IDF) in Palestine. The 24-year-old starlet didn’t only raise her voice online but also joined a crowd of protesters in New York on Saturday. The mob took to the streets of Bay Ridge for a demonstration in support of Palestine.

Bella Hadid, the daughter of popular architect Mohamed Hadid from Palestine, wore a traditional dress, a Keffiyeh, and a face mask while out on the street. During the protest, the supermodel kept waving a large Palestinian flag as she marched in support along with thousands of others.

Following the protest, the supermodel took to Instagram to share pictures of the day and talk about Palestine. She said:

The way my heart feels. To be around this many beautiful, smart, respectful, loving, kind, and generous Palestinians all in one place … it feels whole! We are a rare breed. It’s free Palestine until Palestine is free!

However, the State of Israel’s official Twitter account jumped to conclusions and equated Hadid’s demand for a free Palestine to the demand for the destruction of news. The Israeli Twitter account mistook a chant raised at the protest and said:

When celebrities like Bella Hadid advocate for throwing Jews into the sea, they are advocating for the elimination of the Jewish State. This shouldn’t be an Israeli-Palestinian issue. This should be a human issue – shame on you.

In a follow-up tweet, the account added:

For those of you who don’t know, ‘from the river to the sea, Palestine will be free,’ is a phrase used by those who call for the elimination of Israel.

Twitterati speaks up in support of Bella Hadid

As soon as the tweet was uploaded on the social platform, Twitterati took to defend Bella Hadid’s statement. Many pointed out that Israel, which has killed 192 people (including 58 children and 34 women) in the Gaza Strip while bombing press houses and residential areas, is irked by a chant that Bella Hadid didn’t even make.

Guardian and BBC journalist Hicham Yezza also defended Bella Hadid and slammed Israel for deliberately promoting a vile and outrageous lie. He took to Twitter to clarify the supermodel’s statement and call out the State of Israel’s official Twitter account’s tweet.
