People being tortured and killed or any act of hate towards any one group is horrific. We need to protect ALL people, especially children and stop violence for good. I’m sorry if my words will never be enough for everyone or a hashtag. I just can’t stand by innocent people getting hurt. That’s what makes me sick. I wish I could change the world. But a post won’t.”

Her neutral stance on the situation and not supporting Palestine offended fans everywhere. Everyone called her out for actively speaking against Russia during the Russia-Ukraine war and staying silent on the Israel-Palestine war.
