Pro-Palestinian Activist Rejects Revlon Award Over Israeli Actress Gal Gadot’s Role With Company
A pro-Palestinian blogger and activist announced on Tuesday that she was refusing to accept an award from the cosmetics giant Revlon because of its relationship with brand ambassador Gal Gadot.
Amani Al-Khatahtbeh — also known by her blog name MuslimGirl — wrote to her almost 50,000 followers on Instagram that she could not accept Revlon’s Changemaker Award, given for her efforts to combat gender inequality and stereotypes against Muslim women, due to Gadot’s involvement with the company and her support of the Israel Defense Forces.
“As much as this means to me and I would love to be there to celebrate with you, I cannot accept this award from Revlon with Gal Gadot as the ambassador,” she said. “Her vocal support of the Israeli Defense Forces’ actions in Palestine goes againstals and values.”
