Selena Gomez has faced heavy criticism from fans for her response to the Israel-Hamas war, with many considering her statement too vague and believing she could have used her influence more effectively.

Gomez expressed her concern for the violence and called for the protection of all people, especially children.

“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 in the world,” Gomez posted on Instagram. “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,” she added.

“I’m sorry if my words will never be enough for everyone or a hashtag,” she added. “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 accused her of not doing enough given her large following on Instagram, accusing her of acting ignorant and hypocritical.

“Shame on you Selena Gomez. You have 430 million followers yet people with less followers be doing so much more,” one user stated. “Our voices are being heard. You are just ignorant.”

“Selena Gomez is being so stupid right now,” another commented. “She is downplaying her massive following and being hypocritical. If a post can’t help change the world why call yourself a philanthropist?? why post about mental health, BLM, women’s rights, American elections etc.”

Some pointed out the difference in her reaction to the Russia-Ukraine war and the Israel attack, suggesting a lack of compassion.

“Only Selena Gomez would find a way to make a genocide about herself,” another user said.

One social media user claimed that Gomez’s neutrality was siding with the oppressor.

The Israel-Hamas war has left over 1,400 Israeli civilians dead.
