Many people have lost their homes in the horrible fires in California. Some have lost their lives. And most Americans are offering their support to those affected, including Hollywood stars. But one star who lost his home is finding the response is not all supportive. Instead of support, leftists attacked Gerald Butler after he tweeted about losing his home.
From Daily Wire:
Actor Gerard Butler lost his Malibu home in a raging wildfire last weekend, but leftists are having a tough time empathizing with the “300” star because he’s an unabashed supporter of the State of Israel.
Butler posted a photo of the charred remains of his house on both Twitter and Instagram, and took followers on a “tour” of what was left of his Malibu property in his Instagram stories. His home was one of around 180 structures burned by two fires raging through Southern California, and one of nearly 6,700 structures destroyed statewide.
His tweet wasn’t bemoaning the fact that he’d lost his home. Instead, he was concentrating on thanking the first responders for what they had done to help him and others. Says a lot about him.
But leftists and anti-Semites went after him because he had recently given money to support the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) soldiers and their families.
Butler’s lack of popularity among the pro-Palestine crowd stems from a fundraiser Butler attended just last week hosted by the Friends of the Israeli Defense Forces. The 1,200-person gala, described by Variety as “star-studded,” raised more than $60 million for the soldiers of the IDF and their families.
“The money raised goes to support IDF soldiers, and the families of fallen soldiers and wounded veterans through social, cultural, recreational, and educational programs,” Variety reported last week. “Several donations from Thursday night will go directly to the Impact Scholarship Program, dedicated to helping combat veterans return to school. In addition to helping Israeli veterans, the organization seeks to maintain and nourish the strong bond between communities in the United States and the state of Israel.”
But he did get support from The Mossad parody account.
Pro-Palestinians also went after musician Pharrell Williams and actor Ashton Kutcher becaues they also were involved in the event, comparing them to “terrorists.” They even started a hashtag campaign to attack them, “#HollywoodFundsTerror.”
