Melissa Barrera is speaking out after being let go from the production of “Scream VII.”
The actress has been one of the recent stars of the slasher franchise and was expected to be in the next installment. But that is no longer the case following previous social media posts she made about the war between Israel and Hamas that the studio behind the the film characterized as antisemitic.
“First and foremost I condemn antisemitism and Islamophobia. I condemn hate and prejudice of any kind against any group of people,” she wrote. “As a Latina, a proud Mexicana, I feel the responsibility of having a platform that allows me the privilege of being heard, and therefore I have tried to use it to raise awareness about issues I care about and to lend my voice to those in need.”
She continued by writing, “Every person on this earth … deserves equal human rights, dignity and, of course, freedom. I believe a group of people are NOT their leadership, and that no governing body should be above criticism.” 안전놀이터
“I pray day and night for no more deaths, for no more violence, and for peaceful co-existence,” she concluded her statement. “I will continue to speak out for those that need it most and continue to advocate for peace and safety, for human rights and freedom. Silence is not an option for me.” 신규사이트
