Jonathan Glazer enjoyed one of the biggest moments of his career as he accepted the Oscar for Best International Feature earlier this month, but it seems that not everyone is sharing in the British director's success.

Glazer's film 'The Zone of Interest', which is based on Martin Amis's book about Nazi commander Rudolf Höss and his wife Hedwig who lived with their family beside the Auschwitz concentration camp, has been hailed by many as a powerful statement on the ability to turn the other cheek to human suffering.

In his Oscars acceptance speech, Glazer - who is Jewish - took the opportunity to speak out against the genocide taking place in Palestine, saying "our film shows where dehumanisation leads, at its worst. It shaped all of our past and present.

"Right now we stand here as men who refute their Jewishness and the Holocaust being hijacked by an occupation, which has led to conflict for so many innocent people," he continued, as applause rang out in the auditorium. "Whether the victims of October the 7th in Israel or the ongoing attack on Gaza, all the victims of this dehumanisation, how do we resist?"

Glazer's words were praised by many, but now it has been revealed that over 500 Jewish professionals working in the showbiz industry have signed a letter publicly denouncing his speech.

"We refute our Jewishness being hijacked for the purpose of drawing a moral equivalence between a Nazi regime that sought to exterminate a race of people, and an Israeli nation that seeks to avert its own extermination," it read.

Some of the names that signed the letter include 'Will & Grace' star Debra Messing, director Eli Roth, actors Michael Rapaport, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Amy Sherman-Palladino and more.

Many others, however - including Mark Ruffalo, who has been very open about speaking out in support of Palestine - praised Glazer.
