A social media storm erupted after a group of A-list celebrities, including Quinta Brunson, Oscar Isaac, and Kristen Stewart, penned an open letter to President Biden, urging immediate action to halt the escalating violence in Israel and Gaza. The stars emphasized their commitment to justice, dignity, and peace for all.
In a sharp rebuttal, Meghan McCain took to Twitter, questioning whether the Biden administration would truly heed the opinions of celebrities like Kristen Stewart and her cohorts on such a sensitive geopolitical issue. McCain’s tweet ignited a heated discussion, with supporters and critics weighing in on the impact of celebrity advocacy.
Just wondering if these people actually truly believe anyone in the Biden administration (let alone the President) gives two flying fucks what the chick from twilight and her friends think about anything – let alone Israel. https://t.co/QrKrQShogz

Hours before her post, McCain also shared an “anti-hate” video from Arnold Schwarzenegger, further fueling the debate surrounding the Israel-Palestine conflict.
The heartfelt open letter to President Biden implored for an immediate ceasefire and de-escalation in the region, highlighting the devastating toll on both Palestinian and Israeli lives. It underscored the urgency of humanitarian aid reaching the millions affected, particularly the children and refugees forced to flee their homes.
The celebrities called upon the United States, alongside global leaders, to take a decisive role in ending the suffering, aligning their voices with prominent organizations and figures, including UNICEF and the International Committee of The Red Cross.
