Social media users in the Middle East call to boycott Money Heist after actors praise Israel!
It all started as the millions of Money Heists fans across the globe were waiting for the fifth season, performers from the successful show appeared on an Israeli channel, and expressed their support for the Israeli occupation, and celebrated its criminal activities against Palestinian!
La Casa de Papel cast praised Israeli police and TV shows, prompting a backlash on social media and negative comments on IMDb.
Ahead of the release of the fifth season, actors from the popular series appeared on Israel’s Channel 12 to promote the return of the show.
When asked about his visit to Israel, Darko Peric, who plays the role of Helsinki, said: “It was a marvellous experience and I hope to come back again. I know that there are a lot of fans here, and the people here are great.
“When people travel to Israel, they always talk about strict security and police measures, but when I arrived here even the police wanted to take pictures with me. It was great!”
Spanish-Armenian actor Hovik Keuchkerian expressed his desire to visit Israel, noting that he had heard “wonderful things” about the country.
The actor then went on to praise Fauda, an Israeli drama about an undercover unit, the mistaravim, whose commandos carry out missions in the occupied Palestinian territories while disguised as Arabs.
Turns out @lacasadepapel's cast sang praises about the Israeli occupation & the drama they produced inspired by oppressing & killing Palestinians. What a shame. #BoycottLaCasaDePapel #lecasadepapel https://t.co/kq07R1gPox— Omar Ghraieb🇵🇸 (@Omar_Gaza) September 4, 2021
There is no doubt that everyone who claims to be a HUMAN believes that the normalization with the Israeli occupation done by the stars of La Casa de Papel is a BETRAYAL of humanity, but believing in this is NOT enough, we must ABSOLUTELY boycott this series! #BoycottLaCasadePapel pic.twitter.com/9JEUAsnQ7k— Saïda 🕊 🇹🇳 (@Saida2021Saida) September 5, 2021
