Rihanna now says she wants “peace” for both Israelis and Palestinians in a tweet posted on Tuesday night.
As Gossip Cop reported, earlier in the day the singer wrote and then deleted a “#FreePalestine” tweet.
She was immediately inundated with criticism, and her team reportedly insisted that the message was sent by mistake.
Meanwhile, the Zionist Organization of America said she “should be ashamed of herself.”
But now Rihanna has clarified her stance on the controversial conflict.
She tweeted at 6:32 p.m. Eastern time, “Let’s pray for peace and a swift end to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict! Is there any hope?…. ”
The star included a photo of a Palestinian boy and an Israeli boy with their arms around each other — see below.
