Gal Gadot has been attacked on social media after tweeting her support for Holocaust Memorial Day.

The Israeli Wonder Woman actress took to social media, posting tributes on her Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts, to mark International Holocaust Remembrance Day.

She wrote: “Today is Holocaust Remembrance Day. A day to honor the victims of the Holocaust, May we never forget. #WeRemember.”

However, that merely incurred the wrath of pro-Palestinian supporters, who responded to her, with replies including: “What about poor Palestinians slaughtered by your government?”, “World also will never forget palestinian victims” and “What about the countless kids that are arrested and kept in cages? They get taken from their families screaming and crying and are put in jail to be abused by Israel soldiers….”

Others to post tweets in remembrance included actor Josh Gad, who shared a picture of his grandparents, Evelyn and Joseph Greenblatt. He wrote: “They were children in Poland, when they were taken from their homes and separated from their parents and their siblings, all of them were sent to Concentration Camps.

“Those who weren’t killed were forced into slave labor by the Nazis. Their innocence was lost. Their families destroyed. All because of their faith. 

“At the end of the war, they came to New York, immigrants in search of a new start. 

“The lessons of #holocaustmemorialday are not simply to memorialise the past, but to makes sure we don’t repeat the same mistakes in the future, now, more than ever, we must never forget.”

South African-born Australian singer Troye Sivan shared on his tweeter feed: “Today is #HolocaustMemorialDay. Spending it thinking about the 6 million Jews, millions of Slavs, Roma, LGBTQ people, people with disabilities, and countless others who all perished and suffered at the hands of pure evil. Never forget, and never again. Spread some love today.”
