Actress Melissa Barrera was dropped from the upcoming “Scream 7” movie following her Instagram posts that referred to Israel as a “colonized” land and made antisemitic comments.
Spyglass Media Group confirmed that they have zero tolerance for antisemitism and hate speech.
Barrera’s posts claimed that media censorship favors the Israeli side of the war, and she compared the situation in Gaza to a concentration camp.
“Gaza is currently being treated like a concentration camp. Cornering everyone together, with no where to go, no electricity no water … People have [learned] nothing from our histories. And just like our histories, people are still silently watching it all happen,” wrote Barrera.
Adding, “THIS IS GENOCIDE & ETHNIC CLEANSING.”

“I have been actively looking for videos and information about the Palestinian side for the last 2 weeks or so, following accounts etc. Why? Because western media only shows the other side. Why they do that, I will let you deduce for yourself,” continued the actress.
“Usually, the algorithm on social media gets the gist. Well…My discover page on IG will ONLY show me videos showing and talking about the Israeli side. Censorship is very real. Palestinians know this, they know the world has been trying to make them invisible for decades. Keep sharing,” encouraged Barrera.
Oscar-winning actress Susan Sarandon was also dropped from a major Hollywood agency for similar inflammatory remarks at a pro-Palestinian rally in New York City.
Anti-Defamation League CEO Jonathan Greenblatt criticized Hollywood celebrities for unfair accusations against Israel and celebrating the actions of Hamas terrorists.
