In a remark­able dis­play of online activism, super­star celebri­ties like Tay­lor Swift and Kim Kar­dashi­an are find­ing them­selves the tar­gets of a viral social media move­ment aimed at hold­ing the Hol­ly­wood elite account­able for their per­ceived silence on the Israel-Pales­tine conflict.

Reports indi¬≠cate that both Swift and Kar¬≠dashi¬≠an have been los¬≠ing tens of thou¬≠sands of fol¬≠low¬≠ers across plat¬≠forms like Insta¬≠gram in recent days, as part of a broad¬≠er ‚Äúblock out‚ÄĚ cam¬≠paign led by young inter¬≠net users. 

The cat­a­lyst for this trend appears to be the ongo­ing vio­lence and unrest in Gaza, where many believe influ­en­tial celebri­ties have failed to use their plat­forms to shed light on the sit­u­a­tion or voice sup­port for Palestine.

While the fol¬≠low¬≠er loss¬≠es for these A‚ÄĎlisters rep¬≠re¬≠sent only a small frac¬≠tion of their mas¬≠sive fan¬≠bas¬≠es, the activists behind the move¬≠ment believe that sus¬≠tained pres¬≠sure could ulti¬≠mate¬≠ly impact the lucra¬≠tive spon¬≠sored con¬≠tent deals that often dri¬≠ve celebri¬≠ty incomes. 

The under­ly­ing goal seems to be pres­sur­ing influ­en­tial fig­ures to take a stronger stance on geopo­lit­i­cal issues like the Israeli-Pales­tin­ian conflict.

Both Swift and Kar¬≠dashi¬≠an have large¬≠ly remained silent on the mat¬≠ter, save for a brief state¬≠ment from Kar¬≠dashi¬≠an express¬≠ing sym¬≠pa¬≠thy for ‚Äúthe peo¬≠ple of Israel and those in Palestine.‚ÄĚ 

This per­ceived lack of mean­ing­ful engage­ment has fur­ther fueled the social media-dri­ven back­lash, with many young users call­ing out what they see as the celebri­ty class’s indif­fer­ence to glob­al crises.
