Susan Sarandon oopsie-daisies at rally, issues sorry-not-sorry for boo-boo.

Outspoken actress Susan Sarandon has issued an apology for her recent controversial comments at a pro-Palestinian rally, and boy, was it a doozy! The Academy Award-winning actress took to Instagram to share a lengthy statement expressing her regret for her remarks.

Sarandon began her apology by recounting the events that led to her public blunder, stating that she had not planned to speak at the rally but was invited to take the stage and say a few words. She then went on to address her ill-fated comments, acknowledging that her phrasing was a “terrible mistake” and expressing deep regret for the hurt it caused. She recognized that her words implied that Jews have been strangers to persecution, when in fact, they have a long history of discrimination and religious violence.

But fear not, dear readers, for Sarandon assured us that she remains committed to peace, truth, justice, and compassion for all people. She closed her statement with a hopeful plea for love and dialogue, especially with those with whom we disagree.

For those of you who missed the rally, let me catch you up. Sarandon attended a pro-Palestinian rally in New York City on November 17, where she made the now-infamous comment about Jewish Americans “getting a taste of what it feels like to be a Muslim in this country.” Unsurprisingly, the remark drew widespread criticism and led to her being dropped by her agency, United Talent Agency. Ouch!

In the world of Hollywood drama, this apology has certainly made waves. Let’s hope that Sarandon’s words will be a stepping stone towards reconciliation and understanding. After all, what’s showbiz without a little bit of controversy, right?
