Selena Gomez is the latest celeb to speak her mind about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
The 21-year-old star posted an image on Instagram Friday which stated, “It’s About Humanity. Pray for Gaza.”
“Please pray for those families and babies today,” Gomez wrote. “Please always remember what’s important in life. It’s not any of this. We are here to help, inspire and love. Be that change. #wearethenextgeneration.”
The “Pray for Humanity” post has received 525,000 likes to date, but that doesn’t mean all of the pop star’s fans agree with her.
“You’re taking advantage of your position because you are famous,” one person wrote. “You don’t know what’s going in Israel. “You support terror, I really loved you until this moment.”
“Do not come to Israel hate you here!!! You’ve lost a lot of fans stupid!” a fan told Gomez.
Others praised her for taking a stand on the issue.
“Proud of you Selena,” wrote one fan.
“Never (paid) much attention to Selena before but since this I have gained so much respect for her! #PrayForGaza #PrayForPalestine,” another person said.
On Saturday, Gomez responded to the controversy in another Instagram post, along with a photo of a person meditating on a beach.
“And of course to be clear, I am not picking any sides,” she wrote.“I am praying for peace and humanity for all!”
Gomez is just the latest celebrity to express sympathy for Palestinians, but unlike her fellow stars, has not yet retracted her message.
Rihanna tweeted “#FreePalestine” on Twitter Tuesday, only to delete it soon after. (A source told TMZ that the tweet was posted by mistake.) NBA star Dwight Howard tweeted the same hashtag from his account a few days prior, only to apologize and take down the message.
