Actress SELMA BLAIR apologizes over viral Islamophobic comment

Wednesday, February 14, 2024
 – Selma Blair has issued an apology for a comment she made on social media that was deemed Islamophobic.

The controversy arose when Selma commented on an Instagram post discussing Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib and Cori Bush's decision to vote against a measure aimed at prohibiting Hamas terrorists from entering the United States.

In her since-deleted comment, Selma wrote ... “Deport all these terrorist supporting goons. Islam has destroyed Muslim countries and then they come here and destroy minds. They know they are liars. Twisted justifications. May they meet their fate.”

Selma took a ton of heat from folks who said she was a raging, Islamophobic bigot.

Apologizing on social media for her comment, she said;

“I mistakenly and inadvertently conflated Muslims with Radical Islamists and fundamentalists, a terrible err in my words, and resulted in hurting countless people I never meant to, and I deeply regret this.”

Selma explained that she removed her comment upon realizing it was spreading hate and misinformation. She expressed a newfound understanding of why her words upset the Muslim community. She added that she's "dedicated to tolerance and peace for all who want it, and not hate."
