Melissa Barrera Dismissed From Scream VII Due To Pro Palestine Posts
Melissa Barrera was fired from the most anticipated Scream VII motion picture by Spyglass due to her Pro Palestine posts on social media.
Melissa Barrera, a well-known actress, was originally cast to star in the highly anticipated Scream 5 movie by Spyglass. However, her comments on social media regarding the ongoing conflict in Palestine resulted in her termination from the production. The news of her firing has generated a lot of buzz among fans and industry insiders alike, with many expressing their disappointment and outrage over the decision. The incident highlights the increasingly complex relationship between celebrities, social media, and their professional careers.
The firm alleges that Melissa repeated an antisemitic cliche when she wrote, “Western media only shows the [Israeli] side,” and that she made antisemitic remarks when she called Israel a “colonised land. “Why do they do that, I will let you deduce for yourself.”
After first declining to comment, Spyglass subsequently revealed to Variety that the performer was let go because her social media posts were deemed to be antisemitic. “Spyglass’ stance is unequivocally clear: We have zero tolerance for antisemitism or the incitement of hate in any form, including false references to genocide, ethnic cleansing, Holocaust distortion or anything that flagrantly crosses the line into hate speech.”
Despite recent appearances by Melissa Barrera in the fifth and sixth Scream films, Barrera hasn’t let go of her support for Palestine. The Mexican actress remains active on Instagram, where she continues to express her pro-Palestine views through her posts. Despite the recent developments in Palestine, which went unnoticed by Barrera, she has not wavered in her support for the cause. Her unwavering stance on Palestine is evident in her continued social media activism, which she uses to raise awareness and advocate for a just resolution to the conflict.
The message on Melissa Barrera’s departure was first released by director Christopher Landon, who will helm Scream VII, on X (formerly Twitter). “Everything sucks. Stop yelling,” in a since-deleted post, he stated, “This was not my decision to make.”
