Gal Gadot Under Fire For Her Discrimatory Tribute To Stephen Hawking
Political correctness is making us stupid
Stephen Hawking passed away a few days ago. His family released the following statement:
“We are deeply saddened that our beloved father passed away today. He was a great scientist and an extraordinary man whose work and legacy will live on for many years,” they said. “His courage and persistence with his brilliance and humor inspired people across the world. He once said, ‘It would not be much of a universe if it wasn’t home to the people you love.’ We will miss him forever.”
Tributes flooded social media:
In honor of #StephenHawking and his transformational contributions to our understanding of black holes & the cosmos, we present this #HubbleClassic of a jet of subatomic particles speeding away from a supermassive black hole in elliptical galaxy M87: https://t.co/4aXcptsNA6 pic.twitter.com/mRoGbiL81g

Gal Gadot made a nice tribute as well. But little did she realize that her tribute was TOTALLY AND COMPLETELY OFFENSIVE!
Rest in peace Dr. Hawking. Now you're free of any physical constraints.. Your brilliance and wisdom will be cherished forever ✨ pic.twitter.com/EQzSxqNTuN

Notice the offensive part? Don’t worry. I didn’t either.
According to SJWs, Gadot’s statement is offensive, because she mentioned that he’s now free from his obvious physical issues.
I think you’re fantastic Gal but this tweet is very ableist. His physical constraints didn’t stop him from changing the world. People with disabilities don’t wish for death to be free of their challenges. We wish to be valued for what we CAN do, not pitied for we can’t.

Gal I am chronically ill. Can't shower or even get myself out of bed. Lost 18 years thus far. But I ran a charity funding research for my illness #ME and advocate for Change. All from my bed. Is my life not important? Disablement is not shameful, bigotry is. Watch @unrestfilm pls

It’s harmful to suggest that his disability constrained him. He did more in his lifetime than most of us. It’s harmful to suggest that he has to be dead to be “free.” He was free his whole life.

Really made me sad to read that people actually think like that. Like being disabled is the worst possible thing to be and that death is the best way to be free of it

If you feel like after reading this that you’ve entered the Twilight Zone, it’s because you actually did.
It’s all utter bullsh*t. No one is saying a disabled person’s life is less valuable. I repeat, NO ONE IS SAYING THAT. But no– a wheelchair is NOT ultimate “freedom,” and it’s perfectly OK to acknowledge that.
Get a grip people—
