Hollywood celebrities are joining the presidents of the nation's top universities in condemning them following their brutal testimony on Capitol Hill last week over their handling of anti-Semitism on college campuses.
Harvard President Dr. Claudine Gay, now RN, joins former UPenn President Liz Magill and MIT President Sally Kornbluth. Elise Stefanik, a representative of the U.S., inquired whether calls for “intifada” or genocide of the Jews violated their universities' codes of conduct. On 5th December.
All three failed to respond with a yes or no, with some arguing that “context” would be needed to make a decision.

“Friends” star David Schwimmer blasted “morally bankrupt” university presidents on social media.
“Unable to answer even the most straightforward 'yes' or 'no' questions, watch them laugh and laugh at the unbridled anti-Semitism and calls for genocide on their campuses among students, faculty, and alumni.” Where is the outrage demanding his resignation, an official apology and enforcement of a code of conduct?” Schwimmer asked on Instagram on Friday.
“Silence is complicity,” he said.

Actress Debra Messing shared a clip of MSNBC's Al Sharpton condemning the testimony on “Morning Joe,” when he said, “It's not hard. It's not hard.”
Actor and comedian Michael Rapaport posted a candid video message to university presidents on Instagram.
“You have to think we're idiots. You have to think the Jewish people in Congress are idiots,” Rappaport said.
“I thought to get into Harvard, MIT or Penn you had to be smart.”
He later added: “So what you're saying is that maybe some people should go onto your campuses in KKK attire and sing Christmas carols. Is that acceptable? Resign, you mothers-sisters, you Sad mothers and sisters.” We are not fools. We're not going anywhere, and for the sake of the kids on those campuses, stand up. Jewish children – MIT, Penn, Harvard, all campuses – stand — ng tall, proud, and happy Hanukkah.”
Rapaport later starred in an Israeli comedy show's “Harry Potter” sketch parodying college presidents' anti-Semitic testimony.

“Everybody Loves Raymond” star Patricia Heaton criticized the trio on Twitter last Tuesday, ex 'Decided to use the word.” Students call for the genocide of the Jews. I would like to hear him explain which context is a good context and which context is bad for killing Jews. Maybe 'rape' could be added to it. Is there an acceptable context to talk about the rape of Jews?”
On Monday, “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” actress Charisma Carpenter satirized the testimony by sharing an image of a Holocaust survivor's number tattoo from the concentration camps, with a photoshopped tattoo beneath it that read, “It depends on the context. “
“Never again is now,” Carpenter captioned the photo on Instagram.

During an interview on “Piers Morgan Uncensored”, comedian Jon Lovitz called the testimony “shocking”.
“If this isn't bullying, what is?” Lovitz got a surprise last Wednesday. “Imagine if some group was in the KKK and then they said that about African-Americans. That would be horrifying.”
There is an increasing demand for resignation of university presidents. Harvard has maintained its support for Gay despite revelations of previous cases of plagiarism. Meanwhile, Magill was forced to resign as president of UPenn but remained at the university as a professor.
