Actress Susan Sarandon has lost her film role following her recent comments about Jews during a pro-Palestinian rally in New York despite apologizing for her “terrible mistake.”
According to the Efe agency, the artist’s apology was not enough to change the decision of the production company PTO Films, which had Sarandon, 77, in mind for her short film ‘Slipping Away’.
Furthermore, the founder of the independent film production company, David Barroso, assured The New York Post that there were never “formal negotiations” with the actress. “As a company, PTO Films would like to make it clear that Susan Sarandon’s views do not reflect the views of our organization,” said Barroso, so “they have decided to pursue other options.”
Remember that on November 17th, the actress participated in a demonstration in New York in support of the Palestinian people. At the time she said: “Many people are afraid of being Jewish right now and are starting to get a taste of what it’s like to be Muslim in this country, so often subjected to violence.”
This was enough for Hollywood’s top talent agency, United Talent Agency, to stop representing her.
In a post on his Instagram, Sarandon apologized, guaranteeing that he made a “terrible mistake”, as his way of expressing himself suggested that until recently Jews did not know what persecution was “when the truth is the opposite”.
Additionally, it cited “centuries of oppression and genocide in Europe” against Jews and the 2018 synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, as examples.
