I DO NOT TOLERATE HATE IN ANY FORM!
THAT IS ME IN THE AD YOU ARE SEEING ALL OVER --> Stand Up to Jewish Hate #🟦
The full AD link is here
My phone has been buzzing non-stop since March when this commercial first aired. I vividly recall the moment I was asked to be a part of the Stand Up to Jewish Hate campaign led by Robert Kraft. I had to take a moment to consider it, knowing just how impactful and big the campaign would be. Standing up against hate has always been a core value for me, and a few months prior, I launched our BOY MEETS GIRL® #f😎😎ckantisemitism campaign from my brand's perspective given the rise in antisemitism.
Since the commercial aired in March, my inbox has been flooded with messages - texts, calls, emails, and DMs from every social channel, all expressing their gratitude for my stance. Last night, as it aired during the New York Football Giants game, I had just landed back in NYC, and once again, my phone lit up. I've never been prouder to stand up against hate than I am now. I have zero tolerance for any form of hatred, and I invite you all to Stand Up to Jewish Hate with me #🟦.
The current spike in antisemitism, which has increased by 388% in the United States since I agreed to be a part of this campaign, is deeply concerning. The state of the world is undeniably unsettling 🌎, but I remain committed to using my voice to advocate for what is right. I want to express my heartfelt thanks to everyone who has shared this message and reached out to check on me. Now, I'm checking in on all of you and sending my love.
Don't forget to reach out to someone you hold dear today and let them know how much they mean to you. It's essential to check in on your friends as well. We're all facing our unique challenges, and now is the time to be there for your friends, no matter what they might be experiencing.
