Mia Khalifa reupped an old insult for Israeli actress Gal Gadot with a tweet Sunday featuring an old headline from 2021.

In 2021, the Lebanese-American ex-porn star and pro-Palestine supporter criticized Gadot’s post about the Israel-Palestine conflict. Khalifa reposted a tweet that “Wonder Woman 1984” was returning to HBO Max, alongside the caption, “we asked for the #SnyderCut, not Genocide Barbie,” taking a swipe at Gadot. She reupped the insult Sunday in response to a video of Gadot walking the red carpet for the premiere of the new “Barbie” movie.

Gadot’s social media post from 2021 drew outrage from the left and even prompted Yair Netanyahu, the son of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, to condemn her position on the conflict.

Netanyahu accused Gadot of acting more Swiss than Israeli with her statement, referencing the fact Switzerland has been historically neutral when it comes to foreign policy. (RELATED: Pro-Palestine Model Bella Hadid Faces Backlash For Posting Photos Of 1939 ‘Palestine’ Team That’s Actually Jews)

“Models of Palestinian origin Gigi and Bella Hadid, with millions of followers, have been doing antisemitic propaganda against Israel 24/7 since the beginning of this mess,” he wrote to Twitter.

“The only Israeli figure, with the same number of followers, and with the power of an international celebrity, who can match them in advocacy is Gal Gadot. She chose to write a neutral post as if she is from Switzerland,” he said.
