    The Oscar-winning actors Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz have fuelled furious divisions within Hollywood over the Gaza conflict by accusing Israel of committing “genocide” in the territory.

    Pledges to shun the Spanish actors – believed to have been made privately by a handful of top industry executives – came after Bardem and Cruz, who are married, signed an open letter denouncing “the genocide perpetrated by the Israeli occupation army”.

    I'm not subscribing or logging into the site, so I guess I'll have no idea what the article says. I don't buy that she's blacklisted though. There are plenty of other actors who've been pro-Palestine and their careers are fine.

    I wonder if the OP was also rooting for the Nazis? Or is the OP rooting for ISIS while the USA bombs them?

    ISIS is committing genocide, but they're the underdogs against the USA, so let's line up in support of ISIS!

    They're both incredibly annoying anyway. And he is as ugly as sin. Good riddance.

    Hollywood Studios Blacklist Penelope Cruz over Gaza Letter Accusing Israel of 'Genocide'

    Actress Penelope Cruz and her husband Javier Bardem have roused the fury of Hollywood producers, with pledges made to snub the Spanish couple.

    Oscar-winner Bardem and Cruz signed an open letter speaking against "the genocide perpetrated by the Israeli occupation army".

    The letter accused Israel of "advancing on Palestinian territories instead of withdrawing to the 1967 borders.

    "Gaza is living through horror… while the international community does nothing."

    The Spanish letter was signed by 100 leading figures in the film industry, including director Pedro Almodovar.

    One top producer who has worked with Cruz says he privately has vowed not to hire her again, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

    Another top Hollywood executive also privately expressed his disapproval, saying he's "furious at Javier and Penelope" and wasn't sure about working with the Spanish couple again.

    Relativity Media chief executive Ryan Kavanaugh was the only studio head willing to go public with his views: "As the grandson of Holocaust survivors, I know that anyone calling what's going on in Israel 'genocide' vs. self-defense is either ignorant and shouldn't be commenting or is truly anti-Semitic."

    However, Kavanaugh doesn't believe the letter will harm either of the actors' careers as long as their films are box office hits.

    As one film producer explained: "I think the thing any executive or producer will try to calculate before working with Penelope Cruz or Javier Bardem in the near future is what their value is in the all-important international marketplace. And what territories they might have alienated people in by what they said. It might not be that many. But it's really all about business."

    Other Hollywood big names have waded into the controversy, including comedian Joan Rivers. When quizzed by a TMZ reporter on her thoughts about the 2,000 Palestinians who have so far been killed, she said: "Oh my God! Tell that to the people in Hiroshima.

    "Good. Good. When you declare war, you declare war. They started it. We now don't count who's dead. You're dead, you deserve to be dead. Don't you dare make me feel bad about that.

    "They were told to get out. They didn't get out. You don't get out, you are an idiot. At least the ones that were killed were the ones with low IQs."

    That one guy summed it up: it's all about business.


    Think still don't get the appeal of either of those two.

    I love it when stupid liberals call out Israel for occupying Gaza when they haven't been there for 9 years.

    There are also plenty of stupid Israelis who aren't happy with their government's action in Gaza.

    No, there are a few loud-mouthed self-hating Jews.
    No thinking Israeli has a problem with Israel defending itself.

    she is a citizen of Spain, thus, she, and people from around the world, with the exception of u.s.a., receive unedited images of the carnage in Gaza, consequently, she, and people of her ilk are motivated to end the slaughter of the innocent....500 dead babies, 400 dead women...
