star has enraged fans after liking a post that mocked people during the ongoing – Hamas war.

The actor, , has previously spoken out over the conflict, sharing a message of support for Israel on social media.

After last month – with many slamming his statement – the star’s Instagram activity has continued to leave many unhappy.

On Sunday, Noa Tishby, author of Israel, A Simple Guide, posted a satirical video on Instagram, of a fake YouTube news show where the presenters noted that ‘everyone is welcome, LGBTQH…’ with the H standing for Hamas.

After chanting: ‘From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free,’ they ‘interviewed’ a freedom fighter in Gaza, describing their clothes as ‘oppression chic’ and calling Palestine ‘so welcoming and inclusive’.

Alongside the clip, which has received more than 60,000 likes at the time of writing, the caption read: ‘A huge part of our Jewish culture is using humor to deal with trauma. It helps with the pain.

‘Please enjoy these pro-Hamas college students on their journey to normalize a massacre. Sigh. Aired tonight on the Israeli satire TV show “What a Wonderful Country” – @liat_har_lev @tamirbar.’

However, many have since slammed Schnapp for liking the satirical footage, which has been described as Islamophobic and offensive to the queer community.

‘Vile. Absolutely vile,’ a follower shared on Reddit.

‘Disgusting piece of s**t. I hope his career goes to the s***ter after Stranger Things,’ another agreed.

‘His empathy is as limited as his acting ability,’ a fan penned.

‘What a dumb, gross move. Plus the kindest thing I can say about that video is that it’s painfully unfunny,’ a viewer wrote.

One fumed: ‘He is absolutely disgusting and I will never, ever watch or support anything he’s in.’

‘My blood is boiling this is so racist and bigoted,’ a commenter added.

Unrest has continued to grow in the region over the last few weeks, after Hamas launched an attack on Israel on October 7, leaving at least 1,400 people dead.

The tensions have escalated amid retaliatory attacks, with Gazan health officials reporting that more than 10,000 Palestinians have lost their lives since then.

Many have called for a ceasefire, with stars making their voices heard amid the brutal fighting.

Schnapp, Gal Gadot and Amy Schumer have spoken out on social media, while Quentin Tarantino visited an Israeli military base.

Gigi Hadid, whose father is Palestinian, was praised for issuing a powerful statement on Instagram, addressing the atrocities.

‘My thoughts are with all those affected by this unjustifiable tragedy and every day that innocent lives are taken by this conflict – too many of which are children,’ she said at the time. ‘I have deep empathy and heartbreak for the Palestinian struggle and life under occupation, it’s a responsibility I hold daily.

‘I also feel a responsibility to my Jewish friends to make it clear, as I have before: While I have hopes and dreams for Palestinians, none of them include the harm of a Jewish person.

‘The idea that it does has fuelled a painful, decades long cycle of back & forth retaliation (which no innocent civilian, Palestinian or Israeli, deserves to be a casualty of) and helps perpetuate the false idea that being Pro-Palestine = antisemitic.

‘If you are hurting as I share my condolences today with my loves ones, both Palestinian and Jewish, I’m sending you my love and strength – whoever and wherever you are.

‘There are a lot of complex, personal and valid feelings, but every human deserves basic rights, treatment and security; no matter their nationality, religion, ethnicity or where they were born.

‘I know my words will never be enough or heal the deep wounds of so many, but I pray for the safety of innocent lives, always.’ has contacted Schnapp’s reps for a comment.
