The Israel-Hamas war is not seeing any progress toward a ceasefire, as the war affects Gaza civilians every day. While Israel is dragged into a court of law for committing genocide, the supporters of the Zionism cause, like the ‘Stranger Things’ star Noah Schnapp, are getting heavy vitriol online.
Since the war broke out between Hamas and Israel in October 2023, Noah Schnapp has released a statement to stand in solidarity with the affected Israel and Gaza citizens. However, the actor has also liked posts that make a mockery of the Palestinian struggle. Recently, he released a video to explain his statement, but he is still under fire as the former Fifth Harmony singer, Lauren Jauregui, has condemned Noah’s half-baked apology video.

However, the actor has received ire for his behavior and statements. In a recent TikTok, he explained his statement, saying that his thoughts and beliefs are “misconstrued”.
Noah Schnapp has ensured that he has had conversations with his Palestinian friends to understand the situation better. Schnapp said that both sides want the same things—the return of hostages and “an end to the loss of innocent life in Palestine.”

However, for Lauren Jauregui, it is not enough. The former Fifth Harmony singer has lashed out at the ‘Stranger Things’ star on Twitter, aka X. She wrote, “We kept a record babes ur on the internet liking & sharing your delusional propaganda, you were literally out here w “Zionism is Sexy” stickers, calling all Palestinians and those in support of them “terrorists”, so shut the actual fuck up about “I just want harmony for everyone”.”
She concluded, writing, “Call for the end of the occupation and a ceasefire, until then you are exactly who you’ve shown yourself to be so, own that.“
