Yesterday, we reported that the Israeli actress Gal Gadot of Wonder Woman fame is planning to support her home country this week by hosting a Hollywood screening of footage that shows the Hamas terrorist atrocities that are being committed against Israel. Now, the former adult film star Mia Khalifa is firing back at Gadot for this in a disturbing way.
Khalifa Attacks Gadot
Khalifa, 30, who is originally from Beirut, Lebanon but moved to the U.S. with her family when she was 8 years-old, took to social media on Tuesday to share a screenshot of a 2021 headline that reads “Mia Khalifa Dubs Gal Gadot ‘Genocide Barbie’ After Israel-Palestine Statement.”
Below this screenshot, Khalifa shared another that was a headline from just the day before that read, “Israeli actress Gal Gadot will organize a screening of a propaganda 47-minute video provided by the Israeli military in #LA and #NY.”
“I’ve been trying to tell y’all…” Khalifa captioned the post.

The 2021 article that Khalifa shared referenced comments that she made in response to Gadot, who served in the IDF from 2004-2006 before becoming an actress, saying that Israel and its neighbors each deserved to be a “free and safe nation.”
“My heart breaks. My country is at war. I worry for my family, my friends,” she said at the time, according to Newsweek.
“We asked for the #SnyderCut, not Genocide Barbie,” Khalifa wrote in the caption.

Brands Cut Ties With Khalifa
Khalifa has lost at least two major business deals in recent weeks after she responded to the Hamas terrorist attack on Israel that took place on October 7 by praising Palestinian “freedom fighters.” Responding to the footage that Hamas terrorists filmed of their attack on Israel, Khalifa wrote, “Can someone please tell the freedom fighters in Palestine to flip their phones and film horizontal.”
Khalifa attempted to clarify her comments days later, but she only ended up digging her hole deeper.
“I just want to make it clear that this statement in no way shape or form is [inciting] spread of violence,” she wrote in a post that has since been deleted. “I specifically said freedom fighters because that’s what the Palestinian citizens are… fighting for freedom every day.”
Playboy Magazine was the first brand to cut ties with Khalifa following these remarks, announcing that she had been fired in an email to subscribers.
Red Light Holland quickly followed suit, with the company’s CEO Todd Shapiro writing on X, formerly known as Twitter, “This is such a horrendous tweet @miakhalifa. Consider yourself fired effective immediately. Simply disgusting. Beyond disgusting. Please evolve and become a better human being.”
An enraged Khalifa immediately hit back by writing, “I’d say supporting Palestine has lost me business opportunities, but I’m more angry at myself for not checking whether or not I was entering into business with Zionists. My bad.”
“I just wanna make sure there’s 4k footage of my people breaking down the walls of the open air prison they’ve been forced out of their homes and into so we have good options for the history books that write about how how they freed themselves from apartheid,” she continued.
Mia Khalifa was recruited as an Advisor by Red Light Holland for ‘strategic social purpose and community engagement initiatives’ as well as social media marketing.

Gadot Supports Israel
In contrast to Khalifa, Gadot, 38, has been doing everything she can to support Israel and highlight the plight of the people there.
“I stand with Israel you should too,” Gadot said after the October 7 attack. “The world cannot sit on the fence when these horrific acts of terror are happening.”
“Whoever can and wiling to donate, these people’s lives changed forever yesterday,” she later added, according to Daily Mail. “They’ve lost so much and need help. Only if you can. If you have less empathy towards victims because of how you feel about their government, propaganda is working on you.”
It says it all that while Khalifa rose to fame by having sex on camera, Gadot is a military veteran and former Miss Israel who has managed to keep her clothes on while achieving mainstream international success in Hollywood films. In the end, it’s clear that Gadot has far more credibility than someone like Khalifa could ever hope to have, so the public might want to take the Wonder Woman star’s side on this one.
