Mark Ruffalo posted a link to an online petition in reaction to Israel's latest violence in Palestine, which was put on Israel after the genocidal protests in South Africa, in a tweet on May 11 this month.
1500 Palestinians face expulsion in #Jerusalem. 200 protesters have been injured. 9 children have been killed. Sanctions on South Africa helped free its black people - it’s time for sanctions on Israel to free Palestinians. Join the call. #SheikhJarrah https://t.co/f9R6LYljez— Mark Ruffalo (@MarkRuffalo) May 11, 2021

I have reflected & wanted to apologize for posts during the recent Israel/Hamas fighting that suggested Israel is committing “genocide”. It’s not accurate, it’s inflammatory, disrespectful & is being used to justify antisemitism here & abroad. Now is the time to avoid hyperbole.— Mark Ruffalo (@MarkRuffalo) May 25, 2021
He demanded sanctions against Israel and South Africa in exchange for a free Palestine. He has since apologized and confessed his error in criticizing Israel in an old tweet. Mark Ruffalo apologized in a tweet on May 25 for his latest tweet about Israel, in which he said that Israel was committing "genocide."
He explained that he did not want to write in this manner and that his previous tweet was based on provocation. Mark Ruffalo wrote that his previous message was seen as "anti-Semitic" by some and that it was beyond time to stop pushing one's will on others.
Hey, Mark. I love and respect your activism, but take it from a Jew, the term genocide is fitting since it is indeed the aim of Zionism to remove every Arab from the land, which has been done by ethnic cleansing and mass murders.— Jason Kishineff is a Rabid Anti-Imperialist.

Fans were also irritated when Mark Rafalo referred to his old tweet as anti-Israel and apologized for defending Palestinians. Some people responded to her tweet by telling her that her first tweet was right and the current one was incorrect and that she should apologize for the new one rather than the old one.
no, you were right the first time — see this heat so of the attacks on Gaza, and it’s such a shame that you’ve chosen to conflate criticism of the state of Israel’s atrocities with anti-Semitism. It isn’t and should never be used to justify racism. You are part of the problem pic.twitter.com/1qTJvrl8ag— Jennine #SaveSheikhJarrah (@jennineak) May 25, 2021
Some people reminded the actor that Zionism's true goal was to genocide Arab people and push them out of their homeland, so calling Israel's acts genocide is accurate.
