Lorde has been in the middle of some intense political drama this past holiday season.

The 21-year-old cancelled her Tel Aviv show scheduled in June after she facing pressure from pro-Palestine Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions movement.

The action caused the Israel Ambassador to New Zealand to reach out to Lorde in an open letter, asking to have a meeting in person. Now, a pro-Israel party is accusing Lorde of anti-semitism, reports Stereogum. A full-page advertisement was bought out in the Washington Post dedicated to calling out Lorde saying, “21 is young to become a bigot.”

The ad reads: “Lorde joined a global anti-semitic boycott of Israel but will perform in Russia, despite Putin’s support for Assad’s genocide in Syria.” The ad continues to state the “growing prejudice against the Jewish State” in New Zealand is “trickling down to its youth.”
