The ‘Wonder Woman 1984’ star took to Twitter on Wednesday and shared that she is heartbroken to know that her country is at war.
“My heart breaks. My country is at war. I worry for my family, my friends. I worry for my people. This is a vicious cycle that has been going on for far too long,” wrote Gadot.
“Israel deserves to live as a free and safe nation, Our neighbours deserve the same. I pray for the victims and their families, I pray for this unimaginable hostility to end, I pray for our leaders to find the solution so we could live side by side in peace. I pray for better days,” added the Oscar-nominated actor with a breaking heart emoticon.
The statement by Gadot didn’t go well with Twitterati which slammed the actor over the micro-blogging site and accused her of being a ‘propaganda’ tool for Israel.
Later, Gadot turned off the comments from her Twitter post after social media users started posting nasty comments about her, reminding her about the time she served in the IDF (Israel Defense Force). Multiple people also accused her of supporting “ethnic cleansing” and “mass genocide” for wishing Israel peace.
