Mexican actress Melissa Barrera has been fired from the forthcoming Scream film sequel after the production company said her recent pro-Palestinian social media posts were antisemitic.
The star has posted regularly about the Israel-Gaza conflict, including resharing one post that accused Israel of “genocide and ethnic cleansing”.
Production company Spyglass said it had “zero tolerance for antisemitism or the incitement of hate in any form”.

The department says factors that include overfishing, climate change, and poaching have led to the decline in the rock lobster population.
