For several days, a movement linked to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has sought to boycott artists who do not position themselves in favor of the Palestinians.

In a few days, the movement grew significantly. On social networks, a hashtag #Blockout2024 emerged to protest against the silence of personalities in the face of the situation in Gaza and the Israeli bombings on the enclave. The stated objective is to push them to react.

Kim Karadashian thus suffered the wrath of Internet users after having retorted “Free everyone” to a person in the audience of a conference in Hamburg which launched “Free Palestine”. A call for the release of Israeli hostages held by Hamas which earned the influencer numerous criticisms.

Concretely, the designated personalities then face a torrent of unsubscriptions on their social accounts, but not only that. In fact, users go even further, and simply stop listening to their music on streaming platforms. A way, according to them, to force them to react and take a clear position.

Many artists and celebrities appear on lists published on social networks. For example, we find the singers Beyoncé, Rihanna, Taylor Swift, the host Oprah Winfrey, and the rappers TI and Chris Brown. So many personalities who Internet users criticize for not taking a political position on the situation in Gaza.

In France, the movement has not yet gained as much importance as in the United States or other European countries, but certain celebrities have already been designated. This is the case of the influencer Nabilla, who published the message #FreeIsrael on her Instagram account.
