Susan Sarandon criticized for saying US Jews 'getting taste of what it feels to be Muslim'

Actress Susan Sarandon is facing criticism for saying at a recent pro-Palestinian rally that US Jews fearing for their safety amid a spike in antisemitism “are getting a taste of what it feels like to be a Muslim in this country.”

Sarandon has been intensely critical of Israel throughout the war, repeatedly posting accusations of genocide, atrocities and war crimes by Israel; sharing misinformation denying elements of Hamas’s massacres in Israeli communities; and characterizing Hamas as a “resistance organization” and not a terror group.

My parents were Holocaust survivors (Auschwitz)..I was "advised" that I was "a little too Jewish" to be president of my children's elementary school PTA...my then 7 year old son came home from school crying because one of his classmates told him she'd like him better if he wasn't Jewish... my then 13 year old daughter was not invited to her friend's Christmas party "because you're Jewish"...when my granddaughter was a freshman at a major university one of her suite-mates said "Jews deserved what they got in the Holocaust/they willingly marched to the gas chambers"...

yup..we "have a pretty good understanding of how it feels to be persecuted"...

and to so many other Jewish people, and that the likes of Susan Sarandon, who surely has no idea what it's like to be subjected to such things (nor do I) keep it all going. I do not understand and never will.

Been waiting for Bernie to call for a ceasefire- but he hasn’t yet. At least he wants to stop sending money while Gaza is being bombed. 300 past staff members of Bernie’s are very disappointed and have written letters & made videos and protested his office.

Stein is running as an anti war candidate - so far getting around 2% of the vote. This will take votes from Biden.

Trump 43
Biden. 34
Kennedy 18

She is an anarchist. She is also an antisemite who sees Jews as an obstacle to her revolutionary aspirations.

I'm sorry to say she's gone cray-cray.

Maybe she's proof you can go so far left that you wind up on the right. Maybe gazing at Dump fried her brains, like how looking at Medusa turns you to stone. I don't know the cause but she is no longer our friend and now does great harm.

Dammit Janet!

because I was Jewish unless I accepted Jesus when I was young, to being called "Christ killer, cheap, bullied, how they got "jewed", along with fights, when I was older, so I don't need this 60 million dollar net worth jackass, who worked to encourage people not to vote for Hillary, telling me how it feels.

https://deadline.com/2023/11/susan-sarandon-pro-palestinian-remarks-uta-dropped-1235632398/

After making controversial remarks at a recent pro-Palestinian rally in New York City, Susan Sarandon has been dropped by UTA as a client, a spokesman from the agency confirmed.

The former Oscar-winner has been present at several pro-Palestinian rallies where she made several remarks that included, “There are a lot of people afraid of being Jewish at this time, and are getting a taste of what it feels like to be a Muslim in this country.” She also went on to repost on X a pro-Palestinian post from Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters, who has been criticized over the years for his antisemitic remarks.

Sarandon being dropped from UTA is another instance in recent weeks of talent agencies making tough decisions when it comes to clients or agents making public statements on the war in Israel. Last month, CAA Co-Head Of Film, Maha Dakhil, resigned from the agency’s board after she reposted an instagram story that said “You’re currently learning who supports genocide.”
