Susan Sarandon Dropped by Talent Agency After Pro-Palestine Remarks: A Clash of Opinions in Hollywood

Susan Sarandon has actually been let go by her talent agency following her remarks at a pro-Palestine rally and her sharing of social networks posts by Roger Waters, a popular critic of Israel’s actions in Gaza.

In a declaration on Tuesday, United Skill Company (UTA) informed Deadline it would no longer deal with the Oscar-winning actress after she spoke at a pro-Palestine protest in New York. In particular, Sarandon drew criticism for mentioning: “There are a great deal of people afraid of being Jewish at this time, and are getting a taste of what it seems like to be a Muslim in this nation.”

“People are asking, people are standing, individuals are informing themselves, individuals are breaking devoid of the brainwashing they experienced considering that youth,” she expressed her thankfulness to the rally individuals, particularly acknowledging “the support from the Jewish neighborhood who has actually stood by us.”

Sarandon shared a message from Roger Waters, who has long been an advocate for Palestinian rights and has spoken up against Israel’s policies towards the Palestinian individuals. While some have actually accused Waters of anti-Semitism, he has consistently rejected the accusation.

The current separation in between UTA and Sarandon has actually sparked yet another conflict in the show business, in the middle of the ongoing Israel-Hamas conflict. This incident follows the resignation of CAA talent company’s senior official, Maha Dakhil, who stirred controversy by publishing on social media that Israel was committing “genocide.” Dakhil later withdrawed her declaration, acknowledging it was an error.

Not long after Hamas’ October 7 attack on Israel, which eliminated some 1,200 people and took more than 200 captives, CAA provided a declaration declaring that it “stands with individuals of Israel” and condemned “horrific acts of terrorism.”

Melissa Barrera, slated to star in the forthcoming horror film ‘Yell VI’, was supposedly let go from the project due to her social networks activity supporting Palestine, according to Range and the Hollywood Reporter. Barrera had published a message expressing uniformity with Palestine, specifiying that she too hailed from a colonized country, and and consisted of a Mexican flag emoji. She also asserted that Palestine would ultimately acquire freedom.
