Although actress Gal Gadot has disabled her comments section after receiving backlash for her post on the Israel-Palestine conflict, the criticisms have not stopped. One of the latest celebrities to lash out at Gadot is former adult film star Mia Khalifa. 

In her post on May 12, Gadot said, "My heart breaks. My country is at war. I worry for my family, my friends. I worry for my people. This is a vicious cycle that has been going on for far too long. Israel deserves to live as a free and safe nation, our neighbors deserve the same. I pray for the victims and their families, I pray for this unimaginable hostility to end, I pray for our leaders to find a solution so we could live side by side in peace. I pray for better days." Gadot was born in Petah Tikva, Israel.

Her post came amid Israel locking horns with Palestinian militants over firing rockets and launching a counter-assault in Gaza. Israel’s military has claimed that its air and ground forces had not entered Gaza even as video from Gaza City showed the night sky lit up by explosions from its artillery and airstrikes. At least 110 people have been killed in Gaza while eight have died in Israel since the conflict escalated on May 10.

Days after she had posted the message on Instagram, people continued to criticize her. Khalifa, who has been a vociferous supporter of Palestine, went on Twitter and called the 'Wonder Woman' actress a "genocide barbie". Retweeting a post from the official Twitter account of 'Wonder Woman', Khalifa stated, "We asked for the #SnyderCut, not Genocide Barbie." Khalifa also quote-tweeted a user saying, "Well, technically Gal has a more successful life than yours truly. But still, I simp you more," as she responded, "Idk man, I’m happy knowing that Gal Gadot and I have two completely different versions of the meaning for “body count” that will follow us for the rest of our lives."

Before starting a career in Hollywood, Gadot had served in the Israel Defence Force. Insider Daniel Richtman shared that the actress is concerned that she might end up canceled like Gina Carano, who was dropped by Disney and her reps after she also commented on the Middle East crisis. People on Twitter are already calling for Gadot to be removed from DC's 'Wonder Woman' franchise.

"If we're recasting wonder woman let's replace gal gadot with maggie q," one of them said, while another noted, "Hope she loses her career, and i say that with my whole chest." A third commented, "How does GAL GADOT, the character of the Wonder woman, the hero of children, support her country against them?" One more quipped, "Has anyone tried getting gal gadot and her celeb friends to sing 'imagine' to try to end the current israel-palestine conflict?"

The next noted, "Based off the tik toks of israelis pretending to cry bc their beach day got canceled it actually makes complete sense now as to why gal gadot is a terrible actress." One more remarked, "Never mind the blood of the 60+ children that #Israel killed in #Gaza, @GalGadot is worried about her career for supporting their murdering & the carpet bombing of #GazaUnderAttackk #Palestine #Eurovision." A person reacted with, "Let’s solve the Israel-Palestine conflict by having Gal Gadot and Bella Hadid face off in an old fashioned duel."
