The socialite deleted her pro-Palestine tweets after receiving flak on social media
Hollywood celebrity Paris Hilton mourned the death of innocent Palestinian civilians following Israel's violent crackdown on the occupied region.
The socialite shared a Guardian article regarding Israel's insistence on continuing attacks on Gaza and condemned the killings of innocent civilians.
She wrote, “This is so heartbreaking. This needs to stop! #SavePalestine #GazaUnderAttack #stopthegenocide.”
“This hurts my heart. No one should have to live in fear. My heart goes out to the little girl and the other children around her,” she further captioned a video of a 10-year-old Palestinian girl bursting into tears after Israeli airstrikes ravaged her neighbourhood.
Hilton, however, retracted her statements by deleting the tweets. Later she wrote, “Sending love and light around the world. Praying for peace to make the world a better place for all."

Why did @ParisHilton tweet empathizing with this 10-year-old child who lost her friends in one of the countless bombings of entire buildings in Gaza and then delete it?— Ahmed Eldin | أحمد شهاب الدين (@ASE) May 16, 2021
Because there is a consequence to supporting Palestinian dignity & right to life in the US. TRUST ME. 🤷🏽♂️ pic.twitter.com/86P7hJGwrw
