When renowned scientist Stephen Hawking passed away on March 14, 2018, multiple people posted tributes to him on social media. Among them was Wonder Woman actress Gal Gadot, who left a message on her Twitter. But her post met with some controversy. It was obviously heartfelt, but many people thought it was saying something subtly prejudiced. Arguments broke out over the actress’ words.
Gadot has been a big name ever since she was cast as Wonder Woman in the DC Cinematic Universe. Before that happened, the former Miss Israel was only really familiar to Fast and Furious fans, as she’d been in three movies from that franchise. Her casting as the iconic superhero drew a slightly mixed reaction with many people saying she wasn’t experienced enough for the role.
