Kim Kardashian was urged to delete her tweet in support for Israel after receiving anti-Semitic tweets from dozens of her followers.
After Hamas launched strikes on Israel, Kardashian wrote “praying for everyone in Israel”, Hollywood Reporter said.
After receiving numerous critical statements and even those containing threats, Kim wrote: “praying for everyone in Palestine and across the world.”
Later on her blog she posted a statement reading:
“I want to own up to and explain that earlier today I sent out two tweets about saying prayers for the people in Palestine and Israel and after hearing from my followers, I decided to take down the tweets because I realized that some people were offended and hurt by what I said, and for that I apologize. I should have pointed out my intentions behind these tweets when I posted them. The fact is that regardless of religion and political beliefs, there are countless innocent people involved who didnt choose this, and I pray for all of them and also for a resolution. I also pray for all the other people around the world who are caught in similar crossfires.”
