Ruffalo made a tweet to give an apology saying his remarks were not accurate and were inadvertently used to justify antisemitism. 'I have reflected & wanted to apologize for posts during the recent Israel/Hamas fighting that suggested Israel is committing “genocide," he tweeted. 'It’s not accurate, it’s inflammatory, disrespectful & is being used to justify antisemitism here & abroad. Now is the time to avoid hyperbole.'
As per New York Post, one of the actor's controversial remarks compared Israel to apartheid-era South Africa. '1500 Palestinians face expulsion in #Jerusalem. 200 protesters have been injured. 9 children have been killed,' he tweeted at the time. 'Sanctions on South Africa helped free its black people – it’s time for sanctions on Israel to free Palestinians. Join the call. #SheikhJarrah.'
Similar to 'The Hulk' actor Mark Ruffalo, many other celebrities were also criticized for their view on the issue. The Israel-Hamas conflict has reached a ceasefire now after Islamist Hamas militants and Israel agreed to make peace for now after an 11-day conflict.
