Noah Schnapp Speaks Out: People were very angry with Noah Schnapp last year after they saw him handing out stickers with sayings like “Zionism is Sexy” during the Israel-Hamas war.

Last year, Noah Schnapp got a lot of bad press after a video of him handing out stickers with offensive slogans became popular. Noah Schnapp was giving out stickers in the video that said things like “Hamas is Isis” and “Zionism is Sexy.” Netizens were so angry at the 19-year-old star’s acts that they told producers to fire the Stranger Things actor. But the 19-year-old star finally talked about how he felt about the war between Israel and Hamas.

Noah Schnapp Speaks Out Addressing the ‘Zionism is Sexy’ Controversy

Following a call to not work with the Stranger Things star, Noah Schnapp breaks his quiet.

Schnapp made a TikTok video on Monday night in which he said he wanted to take some time “to discuss everything that’s been going on online.” He added, “I feel like my thoughts and beliefs have been so far misconstrued from anything even close to what I believe, and I wanted to just state from my heart how I feel. I only want peace and safety and security for all innocent people affected by this conflict.”

The Bridge of Spies star explained how he had learned more about the Israel-Hamas war after talking about it with his friends. “I’ve had many open discussions with friends from Palestinian background, and I think those are very important conversations to have, and I’ve learned a lot,” he said.

Schnapp went on, “One of the takeaways I’ve had is that we all hope for the same things, that being those innocent people still being held hostage in Gaza to be returned to their families and equally hope for an end to the loss of innocent life in Palestine, so many of those people being women and children, and it’s horrible to see.”

“I think anyone with any ounce of humanity would hope to an end to the hostility on both sides. I stand against any killing of any innocent people,” he said. “And I just hope to one day see those two groups to be able to live harmoniously together in that region.”

“And I hope for 2024 online to see people be a little more understanding and compassionate and recognize that we’re all human regardless of our race, of our ethnicity, of our background, of our country of birth, even of our sexuality, of anything,” Schnapp said.

“We are all human, and we’re all the same and we should all love each other for that and support each other and stand together. And stand together for humanity and for peace,” he concluded.
