Jewish Actress Mayim Bialik Threatens to Block Facebook Followers Calling Her ‘Feminazi’
Jewish actress Mayim Bialik threatened on Sunday to block Facebook followers who use antisemitic epithets to describe her political views, especially in the wake of the presidential election campaign.
“If you call someone a ‘feminazi’ I’m going to ban you from this page,” Bialik, who stars in the CBS comedy series “The Big Bang Theory,” posted. “In case you weren’t quite sure where this particular feminist Jewess draws the line, you just found it.”
The mother-of-two said it was a woman who used the slur against her. “I’m all for free speech and even hate speech is protected, but I’m pretty sure ‘feminazi’ doesn’t belong here,” she wrote.
Bialik’s message was posted as a follow-up to a post she had uploaded a few minutes earlier about supporters of President-elect Donald Trump victimizing and intimidating women and people of color.
On Sunday night, in an interview with the television series “60 Minutes,” Trump called on his supporters to end their harassment of minorities. He said, “‘Stop it.’ If it — if it helps, I will say this, and I will say right to the cameras: ‘Stop it.'”
