Spyglass Media Group fired Scream series star Melissa Barrera from her starring role in the upcoming Scream 7.
After Melissa Barrera posted support for Palestinian liberation and condemned Israel’s ongoing violence in Gaza following the October 7 Hamas attack in neighboring Israeli towns. Since Oct. 14, Barrera has reposted hundreds of quotes, articles, tweets, videos, infographics, and news pieces to her Instagram Stories regarding the ongoing devastation in Gaza.
"Western media only shows the Israeli side. Why do they do that, I will let you deduce for yourself,” Barrera emphasized.
Barrera also reposted a segment of a Jewish Currents piece entitled “A Textbook Case of Genocide,” which referred to violence against Palestinians as a “distortion of the Holocaust to boost the Israeli arms industry.”
In one post on Instagram, Barrera wrote that Gaza was “being treated like a concentration camp”.
