Actress Susan Sarandon has found herself in hot water once again after making anti-Jewish remarks at a pro-Palestinian rally. Her award-winning status couldn’t save her from the consequences, as her agency ultimately dropped her like a hot potato.
Sarandon tried to smooth things over with an apology, claiming she had not planned to speak at the rally but was dragged onto the stage to share her thoughts. She expressed regret for her “terrible mistake” in trying to draw parallels between the experiences of Jewish Americans and Muslims, admitting that it was insensitive and hurtful.

But let’s be real here, folks. Sarandon had to do some major backtracking after feeling the burn from her agency and the public. This isn’t her first rodeo when it comes to speaking before thinking. Remember when she took shots at police officers on social media? Yeah, she was quick to say sorry for that too.
It seems like maybe Sarandon should just stick to what she’s good at – acting. Leave the political commentary to the professionals, or at least to those who can back up their words with a little common sense.
