Gal Gadot is getting Slammed after her Tribute to Stephen Hawking’s Death on Twitter

The Pioneer of Physics Stephen William Hawking, theoretical physicist, cosmologist, author, and Director of Research for Theoretical Cosmology at the University of Cambridge passed away at the age of 76 on 14 March 2018 in his home Cambridge, England. He is best known for his works in Black Hole Thermodynamics, Hawking Radiation, etc. The man was highly indulged in cosmic particles.


Though most of us know that he suffered from ALS, a neuromuscular wasting disease aka Lou Gehrig’s disease.

The disease paralyzed him from all body movements leaving just a flex of a finger. But even then, his marvelous brain and thinking were left untouched, he never let the illness stopped him from doing what he does best. He is a true inspiration. 


When the news of his death surfaced everywhere, people from all corners were quick in sharing their condolences on social media.


From Politicians to literary professors, and Celebrities, everyone poured out their heartfelt respect towards the genius Physicist. And Israeli actress Gal Gadot who played the role of Wonder Woman also joined in to pay the tribute.


And here’s the Tweet she posted on 14 March, the same day.

Well, what the incredible actress didn’t see coming was the backlash her tweet would receive, what she typed and posted was, “Rest in peace, Dr. Hawking. Now you’re free of any physical constraints.. Your brilliance and wisdom will be cherished forever”. 

People got offended by her choice of words, “Free of any physical constraint”. Because a disability or any kind of physical deformity doesn’t make the person want to die or to be free from life.

Here are the tweets from the people that raised voices against the Actress’s tweet.

This person gives a direct slam to Gal saying bigotry is shameful and disability is entirely the opposite.

In a press conference with The Guardian in 2011, Hawking said:

“I have lived with the prospect of an early death for the last 49 years. I’m not afraid of death, but I’m in no hurry to die. I have so much I want to do first. I regard the brain as a computer which will stop working when its components fail. There is no heaven or afterlife for broken down computers; that is a fairy story for people afraid of the dark”.


But there were also some who were on defense for Gal Gadot.

That’s what I thought too, personally!

In a world where people get offended on anything, I mean even if you watered a plant and post a picture about it, there’d be people who say “Why are you watering it, the ants living in the soil will die, this is madness”. So, no matter what a person says or not there is always an opinion that will either love or hate the things we say. The best is to accept the fact that this will always happen and ignore it like a pro.
