‘Walk of shame’: Social media users slam Gal Gadot’s Hollywood star
DC "Superhero" Gal Gadot is much considered the face of the Israeli occupation.
Social media activists are angry about the news that Israeli actress and former IOF soldier Gal Gadot is receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
DC "Superhero" Gal Gadot is much considered the face of “Israel”. She went from being an IOF soldier who possibly could have participated in the July 2006 Israeli aggression on Lebanon to becoming Wonder Woman in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice in 2016. In between, of course, she had a lot on her plate defending the Israeli occupation forces and their atrocities against Palestinians.
Israeli soldier turned Hollywood's Wonder Woman multimillionaire Gal Gadot sends meaningless thoughts and prayers as the Israeli apartheid regime she supports ethnically cleanses Palestinians and bombs Gazans in an open-air prison camp— Ben Norton (@BenjaminNorton) May 12, 2021

It is worth noting that Lebanon, Qatar, Tunisia, and Jordan banned 2017’s Wonder Woman from screening after calls from pro-Palestinian activists and the BDS campaign rolled in to boycott it.
After the announcements, people reacted to the news by flooding social media platforms with posts denouncing Hollywood's decision and expressing solidarity with Palestinians.

From hundreds of applications, stars on the Walk of Fame are awarded each year by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce. A total fee of $50,000 is paid by recipients for the creation and installation of their star.
