Dua Lipa Slams Accusations of Antisemitism: ‘I Reject All Forms of Oppression & Racism’

Published: Sunday 23rd May 2021 by Rashad

‘Levitating’ singer Dua Lipa saw her name rise to the top of headlines after the World Values Network took out a full-page ad in Saturday’s issue of ‘The New York Times‘ (May 22) to blast the GRAMMY winner for alleged antisemitism.

Via the ad lifted by Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, Lipa – alongside models Bella and Gigi Hadid (sisters of Lipa’s boyfriend Anwar Hadid) – were accused of vilifying the Jewish state as Israel and Gaza have dominated news cycles for nearly 2 weeks with reports of fighting & bombings that have left a reported 240 people dead.

Look inside to see the ad and Dua’s response:

Once the print began making its rounds, it landed on the desk of Lipa who took to Twitter to say:

“I utterly reject the false and appalling allegations that were published today in The New York Times advertisement taken out by the World Values Network. This is the price you pay for defending Palestinian human rights against an Israeli government whose actions in Palestine both Human Rights Watch and the Israeli human rights group B’Tselem accuse of persecution and discrimination. I take this stance because I believe that everyone — Jews, Muslims and Christians — have the right to live in peace as equal citizens of a state they choose. The World Values Network are shamelessly using my name to advance their ugly campaign with falsehoods and blatant misrepresentation of who I am and what I stand for. I stand in solidarity with all oppressed people and reject all forms of racism.”

      Well said! my Queen 👑. It’s unfair to see black people never got in trouble for being racist towards other races, like Asian, Hispanic… messssssss💅🏿💅🏿

      • Shayla Queen 👑 May 23, 2021

        Black people are always violent to other races. Look at all the ongoing attacks on Asians. What happened to #STOPASIANHATE? One white guy attacks an Asian (which wasn’t over race) and it causes a hashtag. Blacks attack Asians every day which it’s why it’s gone quiet. It doesn’t fit their anti-white narrative and white hate campaign.

        Videos are available, look them up, for anyone who wants to label me a “dumb bïtch.” Know before speaking.

        LOL you call that well said? You’re just as dumb 💀

      • Joshua May 24, 2021

        To try and come after all black people for what a few did is ignorant. I’ve seen videos of white and Hispanic people attacking Asian people, and it’s been proven that black people are not even the main assailants of Asian hate. But because a few videos are on rotation by the media this is the narrative that is spun, but go ahead with your passive aggressive racism. and the Israel and Palestine thing, people are criticizing the hell out of Israel because they are wrong, on a human rights level they killed children there is no getting around it. To criticize Israel does not make someone anti-Semitic, these are tactics to paint people in a certain way and to stop people from speaking freely about what’s going on.

    Whoever was behind this print is quite evil and twisted.
    This war has been going on since… forever and humans are what they are… stupid as F and this cycle won’t be broken because new generations are growing up with the hatred of one another.

    That very same page could have stated as well « condemn israelis » because there’s blood on both parties, so give us a break already.

    Have you seen Armenians begging for attention when Azeris where attacking them weeks ago, financed by a few nations, including Turkey ?
    Turkey who committed a genocide during the first world war, genocide that has yet to be recognized by many nations in the world.

    People denying that genocide aren’t condemned, same goes for Rwanda and the list goes on… but this is not shocking to anyone.
    It’s funny how the same events get a different treatment in the medias… and not the same emotions. How about that ?

    This war is never going to end. If you don’t want to help yourself, no international intervention nor celebrity bashing is going to do any good.

    This ad is disgusting and Dua Lipa/her team addressed is perfectly.

    The fact that Dua and the rest of the world are condemning the apartheid state of Israel for bombing Palestine who btw have no army, is not antisemetic it’s called having morals u morons! How can the u attack a country/people who have no army or real weaponry? How are they gonna defend themselves? Cowardly Israelis

  6. HK May 25, 2021

    Dua Lipa has bigger balls than mark ruffalo

    Don’t feed into the racists trolls, as if it’s not black people 100% behind Palestinians. Meanwhile the pasty right can’t wait to condone the bombing of Gaza…
