Actor Timothée Chalamet and 'Saturday Night Live' are facing backlash for a joke about the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas.
During a sketch on the show, Chalamet played a character who was asked about the conflict and responded with a joke about the Palestinian militant group Hamas.
Many viewers and social media users criticized the joke, calling it 'tone-deaf' and 'vile.'
Some pointed out that the conflict has resulted in the deaths of hundreds of people, including many civilians.
Others argued that the joke perpetuated harmful stereotypes about Palestinians and Muslims.
Chalamet has not yet commented on the controversy, and 'Saturday Night Live' has not issued a statement.
The controversy highlights the challenges of addressing sensitive political issues in comedy and the potential for jokes to cause harm or offend audiences.
