After Selena Gomez’s Instagram feed became rife with comments debating about the humanity of Israel’s attacks on Gaza, the singer posted a follow-up photo to let her fans know what she’s really thinking.
“And of course to be clear, I am not picking any sides. I am praying for peace and humanity for all!” she captioned a photo of a serene seaside sunset.
Gomez’s original Instagram post with “Pray For Gaza” polarized some of her fans, who threatened to unfollow her for seemingly supporting Gaza’s side.
Gomez spoke out about the fact that Israeli Prime Minister Bejamin Netanyahu ordered land, air and sea attacks on Gaza to attempt to destroy tunnels built by the Hamas, an Islamic terrorist organization, used to attack Israel. The order has caused Palestinian deaths, including children.
Other celebs like Rihanna and NBA star Dwight Howard have also come under fire for speaking out on the issue.
