Gal Gadot's 'Wonder Woman' is Banned in Lebanon

The new Wonder Woman film has been banned in the country of Lebanon.

The Lebanese group Campaign to Boycott Supporters of Israel-Lebanon is opposing the movie because star Gal Gadot is a former Israeli soldier, and those two countries are at war.

Grand Cinemas announced the ban on Twitter, writing, “#WonderWoman has been banned in #Lebanon.”

Wonder Woman follows Diana, princess of the Amazons, “who is trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.”

    So if a woman serves in the army cause it’s mandatory for everyone (while being a TRAINER, not even an actual soldier), her film gets banned.
    But if a man is a sex offender and has multiple allegations about abuse, he can win oscars and get all the PR in the world??

    Good to know :)

    Remember how Lebanon tries to claim it’s a “liberal” country comparable to France. Nope!

    The movie is going to do great in the box office and she’s getting rave reviews, the only ones being punished here are the people of Lebanon. Good job BDS.

    They are at war!! Of course it’s gonna get banned

    You faux feminists are hilarious. This has nothing to do with male and female. She served for the Israeli military and Lebanon and Israel are at war. I’m pretty sure if it was a male actor, who had previously served in the Israeli military, his movie would have been banned too.

    That’s kinda ridiculous. She may be Israeli but the film is not. It’s a Hollywood film and she is probably the only Israeli in the cast.

    I don’t think you can be a sex offender until a court sentence you for a sex crime. Innocent before proven guilty, right? A pillar of democracy.

  • MM

    Yes, because an innocent person definitely pays to settle multiple (!!) court cases.

  • Maria M.

    Don’t you watch TV? Innocent people are sent to death row and exonerated 20 years later although they confessed at the time. Rich people settle with leeches every day. It doesn’t mean you are guilty, it’s easier than going to court. Casey was probably advised that it’s in his career’s best interest to settle but that was wrong because of people like you.

    Well this is a sensationalist story …it’s ridiculous..but sensationalist all the same. Movies get banned by one country or another, ALL THE TIME. You never really hear about it. Lebanon’s “reason” for banning WW is personally weak I feel, but that’s they’re right. I know nothing about the war between the two countries, but I’m almost certain its probably stemming from religion, and therefore if it’s a Gal Gadot being Israeli/Jewish situation, then they better be prepared for banning a whole lot more…Jews makes most of the films in Hollywood.

    There was no need to get personal, stranger on the internet. Since you only watch TV and never read any articles, it seems, I would like to inform you that it’s been proven that statistically women don’t lie about being sexually harassed/assaulted any more than people lie about getting robbed or burgled. People are also less likely to report sexual abuse because of people like you. Have a nice day.

  • Maria M.

    True, they don’t lie when there is nothing to gained from it. What would be their motive? If Casey was a construction worker in Boston, I would be the first to believe to these women. Alas, he is rich and famous so I am less inclined to take their word for granted. We all know these people are surrounded by parasites and bottom feeders. Women lie and cheat just like men.
