Alia Bhatt added to ‘Block Out 2024’ list for silence on Gaza crisis

Renowned Bollywood star Alia Bhatt has joined the ranks of celebrities featured on the ‘Block Out 2024’ list, a social media movement aimed at holding influencers and public figures accountable for their silence regarding the ongoing Gaza crisis.

Despite her recent appearances at high-profile events like the Met Gala and the Gucci Cruise show, Bhatt’s lack of commentary on the Gaza situation has landed her on the list, which advocates for unfollowing and blocking celebrities who fail to speak out on pressing global issues.

The movement seeks to impact the earnings of celebrities and their associated businesses by leveraging social media platforms. Bhatt is among a list of notable figures, including Priyanka Chopra, Nick Jonas, and Virat Kohli, who possess significant platforms but have refrained from using their influence to address Israel’s attacks in Gaza.

Western celebrities such as Kim Kardashian, Taylor Swift, Beyonce, and others also feature on the ‘Block Out’ roster. The movement gained traction following this year’s Met Gala, where attendees showcased extravagant attire while remaining silent on the Gaza conflict, which has claimed thousands of lives since October 2023.
