Billie Eilish in Hot Water Over Saying 'Hi Israel' For Album Promo
"Hi Israel, I’m so excited that my new album, Happier Than Ever, is out now. Swipe up to listen it", appeared to be the line that has put Eilish on the verge of being cancelled by some.
Billie Eilish said "Hi Israel" in a generic localized ad promoting her new album, and all the lunatics on Twitter losing their mind, "She supports Israel, a Zionist”. It’s hilarious! No, she just selling her new album, you pathetic snowflakes losers. pic.twitter.com/TmAFQE6VZZ— Assaf Chriqui (@AssafChriqui) July 31, 2021
makes sense why so many celebs are so quiet on palestine...they have ties to Israel and benefit from the occupation...sickening to see this happening— GET VACCINATED (@blkgrlmagicc) July 31, 2021
