Lebanon Threatens Boycott of Wonder Woman Film
Looks like no movie is safe from controversy these days. The latest target of boycott threats is Wonder Woman, which stars Gal Gadot. Lebanon's ministry of economy is calling for a boycott because Gadot is Israeli.
Lebanon is at war with Israel and has laws in place that boycott Israeli products. They also have laws that ban travel to Israel or even having contact with any of its citizens.
It appears, however, that this boycott has not yet been put into place, as there are billboards for the film in Beirut, as well as premiers set up for the film.
A newspaper from the country stated that the ministry will "take the necessary measures" to prevent the film from being seen.
Warner Bros. Wonder Woman will be released on June 1.
Countdown to the release of Wonder Woman, with The Movie Hype App.
