Actress Julianna Margulies is unde fire after calling out the Black and LGBTQ+ Palestine supporters she believes have been “brainwashed to hate Jews.”
“The Good Wife” star got candid with Andy Ostroy on his “Back Room” podcast when the conversation shifted to the ongoing Israel-Palestine conflict. Marguiles believes the “entire Black community” has been “brainwashed to hate Jews.”
Which she finds preposterous since she claims that if Black people stepped foot in an Islamic country, they would be the “first people beheaded” to be “played with like a soccer ball,” she said. Marguiles thinks members of the LGBTQ+ community are more concerned about “the wrong pronouns on college campuses.”
“It’s those kids who are spewing this antisemitic hate, that have no idea if they stepped foot in an Islamic country — these people who want us to call them they/them, or whatever they want us to call them, which I have respectfully made a point of doing — it’s those people that will be the first people beheaded and their heads played with like a soccer ball,” she said.
“And that’s who they’re supporting? Terrorists who don’t want women to have their rights? LGBTQ people get executed.”
According to Marguiles, who plays a lesbian journalist on Apple TV’s “The Morning Show,” she’s offended by the “fu*king idiots” within the Black gay community who openly support Palestine instead of the Jewish state. She claims to have seen a “Black lesbian club” at Columbia University screen a film where they “put signs up that said, ‘No Jews allowed.’” However, according to the New York Post, the signs actually said, “Zionists aren’t invited.”
“As someone who plays a lesbian journalist on The Morning Show, I am more offended by it as a lesbian than I am as a Jew,” she said.
“Because I wanna say to them, ‘You f—ing idiots. You don’t exist. You’re even lower than the Jews. A. You’re Black, and B. You’re gay and you’re turning your back against the people who support you?’ Because Jews, they rally around everybody.”
Once the interview surfaced online, many on social media blasted Marguiles for the seemingly racist and bigoted remarks.
“I heard the audio and it was sickening. This individual clearly has a great deal of contempt for black people,” one user wrote.
“WTF does Julianna Margulies mean that Black ppl haven’t been standing with Jews on Palestine? Yes TF they have been! Just not the Zionist Jews. But go on with your racism rather than confront thousands of Jews in streets protesting Zionism,” another user added.
“This is why I hate when celebs give their unsolicited opinions. I really liked Julianna Margulies, but now I know she is racist and ignorant as fu*k,” wrote one user.
A representatives for Margulies has yet to issue a statement, but suggested one may be forthcoming, EW reports.
