His actor Gerard Butler was also among the famous attendees who had been criticized after funding.
Really sad ? @Gerard Butler & Co. does not seem to have any idea of the new IDF. Just drinking cochlea instead of using their celebrities, paying attention to racism, oppression, extradition, occupation #Palestinians have suffered for decades. Ignorance? https://t.co/UpEt0ILie2
