Selena Gomez is one of the most followed people in the world, so people naturally expect her to speak out on major world events… including the Israel and Gaza conflict right now.
The 31-year-old entertainer has not said anything until now and she’s explaining why she has been silent all of this time.
The statement seems to be in response to her fans urging her to speak out on the matter.
Head inside to read her full statement…
Selena said, “I’ve been taking a break from social media because my heart breaks to see all of the horror, hate, violence, and terror that’s going on the world. 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 the 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.”
Fans are now upset that she says she can’t change the world when she has spoken out in support of other causes in the past.
Bella Hadid, whose family is from Palestine, is one of the latest celebs to speak out.
