NextImg:NBC News: Entertainment Industry Still Grappling With How to Talk About the War on Hamas

As Twitchy reported earlier Saturday, Susan Sarandon released a statement saying it was a "terrible mistake" for her to take the microphone at a rally in New York City and say that a lot of Jewish people were "getting a taste of what it is like to be Muslim in this country." She was dropped by her agency after the remark.

NBC News is expressing some concern over the entertainment industry, which is "still grappling" with how to talk about Israel's war on Hamas. It shouldn't be that hard: Hamas slaughtered over a thousand Jews on October 7 and Israel has declared war on Hamas, who hole up in hospitals and schools so they have plenty of human shields.

Chloe Melas and Sara Ruberg report:

The entertainment industry is grappling with how to talk about the war between Israel and Hamas nearly two months after it erupted.

Some in Hollywood say they’re being silenced for speaking out on human rights, decrying what they see as censorship and retaliation in a business anchored in expression. Others say surging antisemitism requires clearer lines between free speech and hate speech, and repercussions for crossing them. People on both sides accuse each other of double standards.

Seema Yasmin, a doctor who has been an on-air medical analyst for CNN, was dropped by A3 Artists Agency for her social media posts about the war, with a Nov. 10 email saying “the agency, as a whole, can’t represent someone who uses certain words” that it didn’t specify. Yasmin said she believes one of them is “genocide,” which she used to describe the Israeli military’s actions in Gaza.

How about calling on Hamas to surrender and return all the hostages? That should be easy.

But that actress whose name this editor doesn't remember was fired from "Scream 7" after a bunch of posts sympathetic to Hamas. What a loss.
