Upset Hollywood producers with the tantrums unleashed by the Spanish couple actress Penelope Cruz and her husband Javier Bardem have decided to blacklist the actress for open letter against “the genocide perpetrated by the Israeli occupation army”.
Ironic but comedian Joan Rivers initially said less IQ Palestinians “deserve to be killed” and immediately backtracked her statement supporting Cruz views on Palestinians saying war is bad. The controversy refuses to die down as Hollywood producers react adversely to the letter.
The couple have sided with the Palestine issue openly in a letter and accused Israel of occupying the Palestinian territories since 1967 truce. “Gaza is living through horror… while the international community does nothing.”
The letter written in Spanish was signed by 100 other leading figures in the film industry, including director Pedro Almodovar.
The open defiance of the Jewish state Israel in an industry and country that was dominated by the immigrant Jewish community has sparked immediate reactions across the industry and some producers have already aired their resentment and vowed not to hire her again, though they were not coming out equally.
The Hollywood Reporter said one producer, not named in the report, said he disagrees with the letter and said he is “furious at Javier and Penelope”.
Relativity Media CEO Ryan Kavanaugh said the couple has undermined the Holocaust tragedy. “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.”
Comedian Joan Rivers told TMZ that the genocide in Hiroshima is much bigger. She said the 2,000 Palestinians killed so far is nowhere near the genocide levels. “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.”
