Fans react to Mark Ruffalo’s apology 

Mark Ruffalo stated that he had “reflected” and wanted to apologise for his posts. The Avengers star termed the posts during “the recent Israel/Hamas fighting” as “not accurate” and that it was being used to “justify anti-semitism.” Earlier, on May 11, he shared a news report, stating that 1500 Palestinians faced expulsion and about 200 protestors being injured and also highlighted the deaths of children. Reacting to the whole scenario, the fans did not like what the actor did. Check out the fan reactions. 

Mark tweeted, “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.” In the past, Mark has written extensively about the issues between Palestine and Israel via Twitter. 

On the work front, back in April 2021, the actor celebrated the 2 year anniversary of his superhit film Endgame, in which he plays Dr Bruce Banner aka The Hulk. Ruffalo celebrated the two-year anniversary of Avengers Endgame by getting nostalgic and sharing an all-cast photo with the original six Avengers on the premiere. In the picture, the Avengers can be seen standing in the photo with Kevin Fiege hand in hand as they set off the biggest cinematic event in the over 100 old histories of cinema. Ruffalo shared the sentiments of Tony Stark, when he said, “love you all 3000” in the caption. 3000 though may have sounded like a generic number in the film but if one adds all the MCU film length up to Endgame then the number is 3000 and therefore the quote.
