Jon Lovitz Has Just Two Words For People Mad At Him For Supporting Israel
LOS ANGELES, CA - JULY 25: Jon Lovitz attends the premiere of Lionsgate's 'The Spy Who Dumped Me' at Fox Village Theater on July 25, 2018 in Los Angeles, California.

Actor and comedian Jon Lovitz fired back on Tuesday at critics who have attacked him for his staunch support of Israel.

In the weeks since the brutal October 7 attack, during Which Hamas terrorists crossed the border into Israel and killed more than 1,200 people — most of them civilians — Lovitz has been vocal in his support for Israel and his condemnation of anyone who stands with Hamas.

But in spite of the critics who have attacked Lovitz, he has made it clear that he is not planning to back down any time soon.

“I appreciate your support during this time of war in Israel and the rise of antisemitism in the United States and around the world,” he said, thanking those who have offered their support and also have said they would stand with Israel.

“I’m speaking out because I feel I must. The world doesn’t like it when Jews fight back,” he continued, adding his two-word response to those who did not like his position on the matter: “Tough s***.”

“The positive responses I get far outweigh the vile comments. Whenever they call me names, like I’m a Nazi or has been or not funny, I realize I’ve successfully punched a bully in the nose and they’re bleeding. In the words of Sylvester Stallone … Keep punching!” he said.

Lovitz also fired back at critics who accused him of supporting “genocide” as Israel fights back against Hamas, pointing out the fact that Hamas had started the war.


“It’s not genocide… it’s war. A war Hamas deliberately started. Knowing Israel would retaliate and knowing innocent Palestinian civilians would be killed. They don’t care,” he said, adding that he supported Israel in its efforts to destroy Hamas — which he explained would benefit the Palestinian civilians as much as it would the Israelis.
