Mark Ruffalo is an American actor who spends his free time spewing antisemitic rhetoric and dangerous anti-Israel propaganda to his nearly 30 million social media followers. Ruffalo regularly aligns himself with antisemitic positions and fans the flames of Jew-hatred masked as pro-Palestinian activism.
In 2018, Ruffalo tweeted his outrage over CNN’s firing of antisemite Marc Lamont Hill. Hill was caught inciting violence against Israel and the Jewish people by reciting rhetoric that called for the dissolution of the Jewish people and the only Jewish nation. Ruffalo stated Hill was advocating for Palestinian rights, when in reality Hill openly called for the elimination of Israel, encouraged Palestinians in their “resistance,” and was later linked to notorious antisemite Louis Farrakhan.
In 2019, Ruffalo signed a letter of support for the UK’s Labour Party leader, Jeremy Corbyn. Despite Corbyn being a staunch antisemite, Ruffalo described him as a “beacon of hope against racism.” The Labour Party, particularly under Corbyn, was discovered to harbor deeply anti-Jewish bias, which led to Corbyn’s dismissal.
In 2020, Ruffalo grew agitated and whined about being labeled antisemitic for falsely accusing the State of Israel of being an apartheid nation during his time on the Mehdi Hasan Show. Mehdi Hasan, another notorious antisemite, is an avid Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) supporter who within one week of launching his show on MSNBC invited guests to spew antisemitic & anti-Israel propaganda.
In 2021, Ruffalo boasted he was “proud” to add his name to support the ending of genocide at the hands of Israel. Unfortunately, the organizations he aligned himself with to “protect Palestinians” called for the destruction of Israel and America. Instead of supporting human rights groups, Ruffalo was openly supporting terrorist organizations whose mission is to destroy the world’s only Jewish nation.
Mark Ruffalo’s outrageous comparison of Israel to genocide and apartheid was met with harsh criticism around the world, leading Ruffalo to issue an apology. In a tweet, Ruffalo says he regrets using the term “genocide.” He said his description was inaccurate, inflammatory, and disrespectful and does not justify antisemitism.
I have reflected & wanted to apologize for posts during the recent Israel/Hamas fighting that suggested Israel is committing “genocide”. It’s not accurate, it’s inflammatory, disrespectful & is being used to justify antisemitism here & abroad. Now is the time to avoid hyperbole.

Ruffalo’s apology was unfortunately short-lived; just five days after expressing his regret for inciting antisemitism, Ruffalo resumed his dangerous anti-Israel rhetoric on Twitter.
In 2022, Mark Ruffalo tweeted his outrage over PayPal’s decision to pull business from Gaza due to ongoing transactions that were tied directly to funding terror operations by Hamas and calling for the slaughtering of Jews. Ruffalo, not bothered by that mission, asked his followers to sign a petition to overturn PayPal’s decision. Thankfully, PayPal refused to cave to Ruffalo’s outrageous demands.
Later in 2022, Ruffalo tweeted against the United Nations adopting the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s (IHRA) definition of antisemitism. He echoed the false claim that defining antisemitism was instrumentalized to “discourage free speech.” Despite Ruffalo’s call to dismiss the IHRA’s definition of antisemitism, the definition has been endorsed/adopted by 40 countries, 300+ non-federal governments, thousands of Jewish academics, hundreds of universities, the European Union’s Coordinator for Combating Antisemitism, as well as the former UN Special Rapporteur for Freedom of Religion.
On February 15, 2023, Ruffalo tweeted one of his most outlandish and defamatory tweets to date, stating: “between their spyware, election tampering, disinformation campaigns, state-sanctioned killing of journalists, apartheid, & their new ultra-right wing nationalist party, there are power centers in Israel that are antidemocratic & dangerous to world peace.” This antisemitic ideology that Jews control the media, Hollywood, banks, and world peace are tropes which have been used to persecute the Jewish people throughout the course of history.
Between their spyware, election tampering, disinformation campaigns, state sanctioned killing of journalists, apartheid, & their new ultra right wing nationalist party, there are power centers in Isreal that are antidemocratic & dangerous to world peace. https://t.co/aH67JbaZAa

At a time when antisemitism is running rampant online, Mark Ruffalo continues to incite and contribute to a drastic increase in violent incidents toward American Jews. Violence begins with words and Mark Ruffalo is complicit in the ongoing rise of antisemitic violence against the American Jewish community.
StopAntisemitism encourages people to be responsible citizens by reporting social media posts that are false and flagrant.
Steven Brizel says
Ruffalo is clearly an anti Semite
Well, one more moronic leftist actor who hates Jews, that I have never heard of, don’t care about and never will care about.
David Ray says
The lackluster idiot also went to Dimock, Pennsylvania to support Josh Fox’s anti-fracking activism fraud.
The grifting couple, the Sautners were shown in “Gasland”.
The trouble is that when EPA came and tested their water, it was clean – causing a drama-queen meltdown from the Sautners. (“Fracknation” documentary. Highly recommended.)
Ruffalo is a 3rd rate Hollywood fool addicted to his own need for affirmation.
Clearly, Israel is not an apartheid state. All people in Israel have full equal rights, An Arab judge, George Karra, sentenced an ex-Israeli president Moshe Katsav to prison for seven years. This shows all people are treated equally in Israel. Incitement to racism is a criminal offense in Israel;This is the polar opposite of apartheid in South Africa, whose government specifically passed incendiary racist legislation. Arab’s make up 20% of the population and are in every aspect of government employment in Israel.
The fact that Ruffalo would come to the defense of Lamont Hill is all you need to know about Ruffalo.
If Ruffalo had legit questions about Zionism that’s one thing, but it’s obvious based on all the above Ruffalo doesn’t like Jewish folks.
There is also the condition known as the “Self-Hating Jew”, which was described by Jewish writer THEODOR LESSING,
born in Germany, in his book “Jewish Self-Hatred “(1930).
A) HAMAS is a Sunni group that has a CHARTER (1988),written when it was created,and it says that the “PROTOCOLS of the ELDERS of ZION” (1903) tells the truth.
The book says the Jews SECRETLY CONTROL the world. The Hamas Charter says the JEWS are responsible for:
the French revolution, Russian revolution,Communism, ……. and WW I and WW II,etc.
B) Jewish intellectuals ( and I agree with some of the things they have said) NOAM CHOMSKY and NORMAN FINKELSTEIN are not just anti-Israel state in general,
but openly support Hamas.
C) Another is SOROS,Hungarian Jew,one of the founders of the totalitarian GLOBALIST ideology,founder
of the OPEN SOCIETY FOUNDATION (1993). He is 100% ANTI-Israel,
is for its destruction. He, with Obama,Hillary,Biden,Blinken,Sullivan,
and KLAUS SCHWAB ( founder of the WORLD ECONOMIC FORUM in 1971), wants to destroy freedom under what they call
the Great Reset, New World Order, the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
Schwab in 2020 wrote the book “THE GREAT RESET”.It is not a conspiracy theory.
Another example of the Self-Hating Jew is
the ULTRA-Globalist, ally of Soros,Israeli writer YUVAL NOAH HARARI who is 100% for the GREAT RESET.
A) He is famous for his book (2011,in Hebrew)
“Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind”
In a 1999 article by JARED DIAMOND ( author of ” Germs,Guns and Steel “(1997), Diamond described farming as the “WORST MISTAKE in the
HISTORY of the HUMAN RACE.*
In his book SAPIENS, Harari essentially agrees:
“This is the ESSENCE of the Agricultural Revolution: the ability to keep more people alive under WORSE conditions.”
B) Yet he ALSO 100% supports the BANDERISTA,Nazi-loving regime of Ukraine.
Because the Banderistas are GLOBALIST, the are pro-New World Order ( like YURARI )
To those who say NO,Soros is NOT anti-Semitic:
1. He supports the anti-Semitic,anti-Israel BLACK LIVES MATTER.
2. In the World Economic Forum (WEF ) ANNUAL meeting of thousands of world presidents,PMs,leaders and businessmen,
held at DAVOS, Switzerland, where the GLOBALISTS meet to plan on how to conquer the world,
Soros in his speech supported UKRAINE, and the Nazi-admirers who rule it.
Because BLM and the Banderistas ( who HATE BLACK people also, they are literal
WHITE SUPREMACISTS) are both GLOBALISTS,New World Order, Great Reset.
3. Soros’ plan is to use Ukraine to OVERTHROW Putin, then install a GLOBALIST government there.
It would CUT off OIL and GAS to CHINA, to DESTROY China’s economy.
Then install a puppet GLOBALIST regime in China.
4.Then STEAL the natural resources of Russia and China to SAVE the economy of the Globalist US government which will collapse soon (debt of 31.5 TRILLION)
UNLESS it can get cheap resources from China and Russia.
Another example of the self-hating Jew is ZELENSKY. In 2021 ,( president in 2019) . BEFORE the war,
a Jewish news website TRIBUNE JUIVE,pro-Israel, FRENCH, published an article detailing ALL the monuments,plaques,statues in Ukraine
in honor of Ukrainians who had KILLED JEWS ( Ukrainians who were SS NAZIS ) and/or Poles during WW II.
I had formerly given a link that is no longer good,here is the GOOD link ( January 2023 article,SAME as their 2021 article):
“Lev Golinkin. Monuments aux collaborateurs nazis en Ukraine. 27 Janvier 2021” ( translate using Google TRANSLATE )
BANDERA was included but also plaques in honor of SS soldiers (Ukrainians)and others who killed Jews:
SS soldier Dmytro Paliiv (1896-1944), Oleksa Babiy (1909-1944) ( participated in the killing of 33,000 Jews in BABI YAR,near KIEV),
Ivan Kedyulich (1912-1945)( also killed Jews in Babi Yar),
Oleksandr Lutskyi (1910-1946) ( SS ),etc,etc,etc.
STATUES IN HONOR OF Roman Shukhevych (1907-1950)
Who was he? He was the Banderista leader responsible for the MASSACRE of 70,000-100,000
innocent Polish men,women and children in the region called VOLYN ( formerly part of Poland,in orthwest Ukraine). Ethnic cleansing.
He’s not very bright. His only education beyond high school was acting school. He gloms on to every fashionable Leftist cause of which he knows nothing. I imagine he does that to appear to be an “intellectual,” which he clearly isn’t. The Dunning-Kruger syndrome’s living embodiment.
Is he Roger Waters’s cousin?
Edward A.Brandwein says
Another Hollywood’s Useful Idiots
One way to stop being upset by the ravings of this and every other idiot is to ignore them. They are pathetically seeking the limelight and perhaps the best way to deal with nonentities like Ruffalo is not to give them what they crave. I can guarantee that most Israelis, like me, dont give a toss what he says. We have other things to think about.
It is not unusual for actors and singers and entertainers to have leftist views.So this is not entirely unexpected. I still like their entertainment, so long as it is not politically informed. I hope he learns his lesson. If his ancestors were treated like Jews and Israelis, maybe he would be more sympathetic.
rocco barbella says
I assume Ruffalo is Italian. If he is, Ruffalo should have some basic history of how the Italians were treated when they arrived in the US.
Italians, although categorized as “white” by the federal government, were thought of as “non-white” by society, and they were treated as such.
I was told many stories from older relatives who experienced overt and blatant discrimination. The biggest lynching (or one of the biggest) was done to Italians in New Orleans.
Ruffalo is too stupid to understand. He’s a Leftist.
Andrew Blackadder says
In Thailand people that are thought of as stupid are called Buffalo’s and Ruffalo is close enough.
He was one of the Hollywood idiots that Bailed out those black LIES matter and antifa soy boys from Prison after they burned the City down… peacefully.
The Hollywood Actress Patrica Arquette was asked her opinion about the Russia-Ukraine situation and with a perfectly serious face she answered…” Well I think its time we kicked Russia out of NATO”…
The wisdom of Hollywood movie Stars is truly amazing.
Sitting in their mega mansions on top of the Hill looking down while telling us all just how wonderful communism is.
Walter Sieruk says
That American actor, Mark Ruffalo is ,in essences, un-American . As former US President, William Howard Taft, wisely, declared in a speech that “Anti-Semitism is a noxious weed that should be cut out it has no place in America.”
Related to this is a grand statement in a speech former President Theodore Roosevelt, rightly, declared, “There can be no fifty-fifty Americanism in this country. There is room here for only one hundred percent Americanism, only for those who are Americans and nothing else.”
Student of Many Decades says
The Day will come when all bow before the People of Israel and feel the utmost painful and pitiful sorrow for all of the macabre’ pain, suffering and death they have fomented upon a People who did not chose but were chosen by our Sovereign Creator to carry and they have loyally carried the Great Joy and Burden of the Yoke of the Celestial Kingdom for all Mankind for thousands of years in spite of Mankind’s brutal horrendous treatment. It is written within the oldest Sephers known to our world and it will be. Ye of little Faith do not even know what the Yoke of the Celestial Kingdom is but you will and for those who have injured Israel – that Day will be The Day of your reckoning with the Almighty All Powerful Sovereign Creator of the Universe, Mankind and All.. Truly Repent or face the Dark Abyss – Forever. Your time is running out – you have only until the last hour and not one second longer by Command of our Sovereign Creator. The time is sooner than you either imagine or know. Emeth.
