Brett Gelman


Actor Brett Gelman from “Stranger Things” condemned university officials for permitting anti-Israel protests and encampments to dominate their campuses, suggesting that the protesters were given preferential treatment.

Right to freedom


The Jewish actor and comedian, famous for portraying Murray Bauman in the Netflix show, emphasized the importance of safeguarding students’ right to freedom of expression while also emphasizing the need to condemn hate speech and violence.



He shared his thoughts with TMZ on Tuesday saying, “They should be expelled. That’s it.”

Immediately shut down


“If this was against any other people, or they were blocking Black students or gay students or women from entering campus, this would be shut down. This would’ve been immediately shut down. As it should be,” he continued.

Criticism and threats


Gelman has been vocal in his support for Israel and has spoken out about the criticism and threats he has faced for his stance following the October 7 terrorist attacks.

Jewish pain


“The fact that Jewish pain is not being recognized by these people — it just shows their cards,” he continued by expressing his thoughts on protesters against Israel.



The actor also raised concerns about the protesters wearing masks and highlighted the involvement of professional instigators influencing these demonstrations.

Strangely coordinated


“I’m not a conspiracy theorist, but it seems very strangely coordinated, to a degree. So it’s not just about passions about injustices. It’s a coordinated movement that we’ve seen before,” Gelman said.

Jewish students


“It’s really just a repeat of the 1930s, not allowing Jewish students at universities,” he continued.

Noah Schnapp


Noah Schnapp, Gelman’s co-star in “Stranger Things,” has faced criticism for openly supporting Israel in its conflict with Hamas.

Hamas is Isis


In November, he faced online hate for taking photos with stickers that said, “Zionism is Sexy” and “Hamas is Isis.”



Earlier this year, Schnapp informed his followers that his beliefs have been “misconstrued” by critics, emphasizing that his only desire is for peace, safety, and security is “for all innocent people affected by this conflict.”
