Relativity Media CEO Ryan Kavanaugh has become the first major Hollywood executive to weigh in on last week’s controversial letter, signed by Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem, that denounced what it called Israeli “genocide.” Kavanaugh told The Hollywood Reporter, “It makes my blood boil. As the grandson of Holocaust survivors, anyone calling it Israeli ‘genocide’ vs. protecting themselves are either the most ignorant people about the situation and shouldn’t be commenting, or are truly anti-Semitic.” In response to the escalating conflict in Gaza, Cruz and Bardem were among a group of Spanish film luminaries to pen an open letter that urged the European Union to “condemn the bombing by land, sea and air against the Palestinian civilian population in the Gaza Strip.”

“Relativity’s Ryan Kavanaugh: Javier Bardem And Penelope Cruz Letter On Israel ‘Makes My Blood Boil'” is categorized as “world”. This video was licensed from Grab Networks. For additional video content, click the “video” tab at the top of this page.
