May 14, 2021 Rihanna and Halsey are catching heat for getting political, with their statements on the escalating feud between Israel and Palestine. Rihanna and Halsey have been blasted for wading into the Middle East conflict between Israel and Palestine with reductive tweets. The pop stars have offered their takes on the ongoing war between the two nations, which boiled over again following a series of attacks after Israeli police officials blocked off the Damascus Gate, where Palestinian Arabs were planning to gather for the religious holiday Ramadan. Rihanna revealed her heart was broken after the deaths of innocent children and she called for a resolution. My heart is breaking with the violence Im seeing displayed between Israel and Palestine! the singer wrote on Instagram. I cant bare (sic) to see it! Innocent Israeli and Palestinian children are hiding in bomb shelters, over 40 lives lost in Gaza alone, at least 13 of whom were also innocent children! A post shared by badgalriri (@badgalriri) There needs to be some kind of resolve! We are sadly watching innocent people fall victim to notions perpetuated by government and extremists, and this cycle needs to be broken! She was criticized for taking a neutral stance, with one commenter stating: No @rihanna, if you stand with humanity you stand with Palestine. Halsey offered: It is not too complicated to understand that brown children are being murdered + people are being displaced under the occupation of one of the most powerful armies in the world. It is willful ignorance to conflate these simple horrors with religion + geopolitics. @halsey It is not too complicated to understand that brown children are being murdered + people are being displaced under the occupation of one of the most powerful armies in the world. It is willful ignorance to conflate these simple horrors with religion + geopolitics. #FreePalestine
