Bar Refaeli is being labeled a “baby killer” — and worse, if there is such a thing — for daring to voice her support of Israel on her Instagram page.
The model posted a photo in memory of the Israeli Defense Force soldiers who have lost their lives during the current conflict with Hamas, and wrote, “These days are so difficult to bare [sic].”
“Brave young men who have protected our country from terror. My heart goes out to their families,” continued Refaeli. “They will always be remembered and respected #RIP.”
Since her post, the Israeli-born-and-raised beauty, who previously dated Leonardo DiCaprio, has been inundated with anti-Semitic comments, including one calling her a “monster terrorist.”
Another person wrote, “Times like these make u wanna wonder and wonder and wonder: why…why didnt hitler finish what he started?”
Even a separate post from Refaeli — who did not serve in the IDF — about exercising alongside an adorable dog led to comments like “#riphitler.”
As Gossip Cop previously reported, Rihanna and Selena Gomez also received backlash for commenting on the escalating Israeli-Palestinian situation, while the Backstreet Boys canceled their upcoming concerts due to safety concerns.
