WWE Superstar Sami Zayn was trending on Twitter with fans
using the hash tag #WeSupportSamiZayn after Zayn spoke in
support of the Palestinian people.
Zayn did not shy from the hot and very divisive topic.
Watching politicians & commentators rush to wrap Israeli
military aggression in a cloak of victimhood, while omitting
the crimes towards the Palestinians is beyond shameful,
Zayn wrote in a tweet two days ago. The hypocrisy in the
discourse & the callous indifference towards the Palestinian
people is appalling.
The former Intercontinental champion also replied to a tweet
sent by politician Andrew Yang, calling him a soulless
piece of sh*t. Yang has just tweeted about New York
supporting Israel and its people.
Maybe not the most tasteful statement to make within hours
of Israel bombing Gaza and killing 20 Palestinians, 9 of
whom were children. But then again Im not a soulless piece
of sh*t politician so what do I know? Zayn replied to Yang.
Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer wrote today that
after the tweets, several pro-Israel advertisers contacted
WWE, FOX, and NBCUniversal.
Another WWE Superstar, Charlotte Flair, was on the receiving
end of some backlash when she liked a tweet by Israeli
actress Gal Gadot who wrote that the two nations should live
free and safe.
Holy crap it was a pocket like. Im sorry, Flair tweeted
after fans noted her like.
