John Cusack blames anti-Semitic tweet on a ‘bot’

John Cusack has been in some of the greatest movies of the 80’s and 90’s, but I gotta say, he’s always seemed a little unst

able to me.  I mean political views be damned, you just don’t tweet out antisemitic propaganda and get away with it.

Which leads us to this tweet from John yesterday where an image showed a hand with a Star of David pushing people down with the caption ‘follow the money’.

It was accompanied by a Voltaire quote that reads: ‘To learn who rules over you simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize.’  Below the quote are the words: ‘Is it not obvious?’

The actor was immediately blasted on social media shortly after the tweet was shared.

‘A bot got me,’ Cusack tweeted. ‘I thought I was endorsing a pro Palestinian justice retweet – of an earlier post – it came I think from a different source – Shouldn’t Have retweeted.’

The tweet has since been deleted but journalist, Yashar Ali slammed Cusack on Twitter.

‘This is disgusting,’ Ali wrote, adding in another tweet that Cusack’s ‘bot excuse is absurd’.

This will most certainly not be the last time John has to apologize for that tweet.
