Susan Sarandon Fired By Talent Agency Following Pro-Palestinian Rally Appearance

According to several reports, Susan Sarandon lost her clientele at a Hollywood talent agency after making a statement during a pro-Palestine rally over the weekend.

An official for United Talent Agency confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter, Deadline, and the Los Angeles Times that the Oscar-winning actress’ remarks about the Israel-Hamas conflict during a rally in New York City led to the agency severing its relationship with her.

Sarandon discussed at the rally the state of fear that the Jewish community has been living in since last month’s start of the conflict between Israel and Palestinian militants.

“There are a lot of people afraid of being Jewish at this time and are getting a taste of what it feels like to be a Muslim in this country, so often subjected to violence,” Sarandon said, according to footage obtained by the New York Post.

832 anti-Jewish acts have been reported in the US since October 7, according to the Anti-Defamation League, an advocacy group that regularly speaks out against extremism and antisemitism.

According to The Guardian, Sarandon also encouraged others to have the “courage to speak out” in support of Palestinians: “People are questioning, people are standing up, people are educating themselves, people are stepping away from brainwashing that started when they were kids.”

After Hamas launched stunning and deadly surprise attacks on October 7, which fell on a major Jewish holiday and the 50th anniversary of the outbreak of the Yom Kippur War in 1973, Israel’s conflict with Palestinian militants intensified. With militants infiltrating 22 towns and army bases, it was one of the biggest attacks on Israel in decades.

On the Jewish holiday of Simchat Torah, Hamas launched a shocking attack against Israel, which included the Nova music festival, which is a few miles from the Gaza Strip. According to the Associated Press, Hamas gunmen killed over 260 revelers in the biggest civilian massacre in Israeli history at this festival. Israeli forces responded to the attack by conducting airstrikes and ground combat in the Gaza Strip.

More than 1,200 Israelis were killed and 240 others were taken hostage by militants who crashed over the border from Gaza on October 7, according to Israeli authorities. Israeli forces have freed one hostage, while four others have been released. According to the Gaza Health Ministry, over 11,000 Palestinians have died as a result of Israel’s subsequent military campaign.
