Activist actress Rosario Dawson attacked the Democratic National Committee for “willingness to be antisemitic,” the Washington Times reported on Thursday.

According to the report, Dawson, the star of “Dardevil” and an avid Bernie Sanders supporter, was responding to a the release by Wikileaks of nearly 20,000 documents showing the DNC’s active efforts to undermine Sanders — as a result of which Debbie Wasserman Schultz was forced to step down as DNC chairman.

Among the exposed documents was an email by DNC Chief Financial Officer Brad Marshall that called into question Sanders’ religion. Marshall wrote about the senator, “Does he believe in a God? He had skated on saying he has a Jewish heritage. I think I read he is an atheist…My Southern Baptist peeps would draw a big difference between a Jew and an atheist.”

 During an interview with the video news show “Young Turks” on Wednesday, Dawson said, “When Debbie Wasserman Schultz resigns because of the DNC leaks and is immediately hired and there’s nothing in the statement from Hillary Clinton that even acknowledges the reason why she’s now available to run her campaign, there’s already a trust gap, there’s already a feeling that there isn’t integrity there.”
About the Democratic National Convention she said, “There’s a lot of talk about unity, but we’re not feeling it, we’re not seeing it, it’s not being reflected to individual delegates I’ve spoken with.”
The DNC released a statement on Monday offering a “deep and sincere apology” to Sanders for the “inexcusable remarks made over email.”
