Selena Gomez took a swing at discussing the Israel-Palestine situation, but it seems like she accidentally hit a comedy home run. Her company, Rare Beauty, just dropped a statement that’s longer than a CVS receipt, and it’s got more twists and turns than a rollercoaster.
Rare Beauty’s Instagram account decided to make their stance clear by posting a picture of a maroon square that screams, “Humanitarian Crisis in Gaza.” Yep, subtlety is not their strong suit.
Their caption reads like a Shakespearean soliloquy, but if you squint really hard, you’ll see that they’re not exactly thrilled with what’s happening on the Israeli side of things, especially when Israel decided to crash the Hamas party. There have been casualties, and Rare Beauty says, “Nope, we’re not down with that.” They add, “Palestinian civilians must be protected, period.” Well, that’s as clear as a freshly cleaned window.
They also mention a terror attack in Israel and state that attacks on civilians are a no-no. It seems like they’re putting a bit more emphasis on the Palestinian predicament.
What’s intriguing here is that Rare Beauty’s statement seems to be more straightforward than Selena’s attempt from last week, which left us all scratching our heads. She did say she’s against any form of hate, but who was she saying it to? Now, Rare Beauty is setting the record straight – it’s everyone.
But one thing they can’t deny is that they believe Israel’s response has been a bit too extra. The crisis in Gaza, they say, is like a 24/7 party that no one wants an invite to. This lines up with all those pro-Palestine rallies happening, which are popping up faster than a game of Whack-a-Mole.
Selena might have had trouble expressing herself, but her company’s got her back. You can bet they wouldn’t post this without her giving it the green light. And they’re not just all talk, they’re guiding people to resources and making donations to organizations that provide international aid. Plus, they’re telling everyone to be kind in these bizarre and spooky times. Rare Beauty, you’ve really outdone yourself.
