The former WWE United States Champion has made a series of Tweets which has added to the controversy.
“There is no viable moral defense for stealing people’s homes based on their ethnicity.
He also Tweeted the following:
“Here’s one very direct way you can help some people in Gaza.
@JoeGaza93 is a Palestinian activist who does a yearly fundraiser to provide food parcels to families in need in Gaza.
It won’t end the occupation, but you’ll help feed a few families.
Zayn also had this to say about Andrew Yang:
“Try as I may, I will never be the most insufferable human being on television as long as this soulless parasite is on the airwaves.”
Following was also Tweeted by him:
“Watching politicians & commentators rush to wrap Israeli military aggression in a cloak of victimhood, while omitting the crimes towards the Palestinians is beyond shameful. The hypocrisy in the discourse & the callous indifference towards the Palestinian people is appalling.”
Meltzer further noted that WWE and the TV networks did not issue a response to the pro-Israel groups that contacted them. We will have to see what is the outcome of this matter.
