Muslim blogger spurns Revlon award over Gal Gadot appointment

A Muslim blogger has declined an award from Revlon in protest at the beauty brand’s choice of Gal Gadot to front a recent campaign, according to a report published by the Times of Israel.

Amani Al-Khatahtbeh, who posts under the moniker MuslimGirl, was nominated for Revlon’s Changemaker award, celebrating its new #liveboldy campaign, but rejected the accolade, asserting that the Wonder Woman actress’ support of the Israel Defense Forces contributed to the oppression of women.

“It means so much to me when @muslimgirl’s work is recognized and elevated in spaces from which we’ve traditionally been excluded,” she posted on Instagram. “But that’s what makes it even more important at this moment to elevate and stand up for ALL women and girls.”
