Talent agency fires Susan Sarandon over anti-Jewish remarks

 November 23, 2023

Susan Sarandon was recently fired by her Hollywood agency over comments the Oscar-winning actress made regarding Jewish people.

According to Page Six, Sarandon's remarks came during a pro-Palestinian protest held in New York City earlier this month.

Sarandon says Jews "are getting a taste of what it feels like to be a Muslim"

"There are a lot of people afraid of being Jewish at this time, and are getting a taste of what it feels like to be a Muslim in this country," the 77-year-old performer was quoted as saying.

In response, a spokesperson for the talent agency UTA informed Page Six that Sarandon had been dropped as a client after staff members expressed outrage.

Their reaction was far from being unique, as the veteran actress quickly became the subject of widespread criticism online.

Aviva Klompas formerly served at the Israeli Mission to the United Nations as director of speech writing, and she accused Sarandon of justifying violence.

"When Susan Sarandon said that Jews 'are getting a taste of what it feels like to be a Muslim in this country' she was saying that American Jews have it coming - that we don't deserve to live free from harassment and assault," Klompas wrote.

Page Six noted how Sarandon's comments also got pushback from former Georgetown University professor and conservative author Asra Nomani.

She put up a social media post featuring a picture of her Muslim immigrant parents, saying, "Hi there Susan Sarandon, this is my mom, my dad and me on the rail trail in Morgantown, West by God Virginia."

Nomani then recalled how living in the United States offered her family a far better life than they could have hoped for in most of the Muslim world.

"My dad didn’t have to become a second-class indentured servant to one of the many tyrants of Muslim countries that use immigrants from India, like my family, as essential slaves," Nomani pointed out.

"Go, live like a Muslim woman in a Muslim country. You will come back to America and kiss the land beneath your feet," she added.

" A free people [claim] their rights, as derived from the laws of nature."
