A crash course on cancellation culture saw an Oscar-winning actress walk back her anti-Semitic comments after taking advantage of the cost of rhetoric she called “a terrible mistake”.
On Friday night, 77-year-old activist celebrity Susan Sarandon took on the role of mea culpa victim in a social media post aimed at reversing the tide of vitriol that saw her fired from her agency of talent Using intersectional buzzwords, the actress implored the audience to recognize that her aim to align herself with the terrorist's sympathizers was to signal “the fight against bigotry of all kinds.”
“Recently, I attended a rally alongside a diverse group of activists seeking to highlight the urgent humanitarian crisis in Gaza and call for a ceasefire. I wasn't planning to speak, but I was invited on stage and say a few words,” Sarandon established to support the premise that her remarks were ill-conceived due to the sudden nature of the timing of her delivery.
“Intending to communicate my concern about the rise in hate crimes, I said that American Jews, as targets of anti-Semitic hatred, “are getting a sense of what it's like to be Muslim in this country, often subjected to violence.” “, he continued. “This sentence was a terrible mistake, as it implies that until recently the Jews were oblivious to the persecution, when the opposite is true.”
International Legal Forum CEO Arsen Ostrovksy shared the apology with his own summary of the intended message while captioning it: “Shorter @SusanSarandon: 'I need my agent back'.”

How reported, the backlash to Sarandon's statements had seen her dropped as a client of the United Talent Agency of almost 10 years. This came after the actress had appeared and spoken at no fewer than two separate anti-Israel rallies in New York City where she had bemoaned her “cruelly granted white privilege” and was said to have joined chants of genociously “from the river”. to the sea.”
“As we all know, from centuries of oppression and genocide in Europe, to the Tree of Life shooting in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Jews have long been familiar with religious discrimination and violence that continues to this day “, continued the statement on social networks. “I deeply regret that I diminished this reality and hurt people with this comment. My intention was to show solidarity in the fight against bigotry of all kinds, and I am sorry that I was not able to do that.”
“I will continue my commitment to peace, truth, justice and compassion for all people,” he added before concluding, “I hope we can meet with love and a willingness to dialogue, especially with those with whom we don't agree.”
In response, X's users (since comments appeared to be throttled on her original Instagram post) demonstrated their own kind of solidarity “against bigotry of all kinds” and issued Sarandon a resounding, “No s 'accept apologies!'
Apology not accepted! You meant what you said. Don't walk her again now!

She believes that saying “I'm sorry” will change people's minds immediately. It is as if someone could say: “Yesterday, I was anti-Semitic, and today, I am not” What hypocrisy! ♂️
