Outlander actor Sam Heughan has apologized after it was revealed that he signed an open letter by Artists for Palestine UK, which has faced criticism for its statements against Israel and the Israel-Gaza conflict without mentioning Hamas. Heughan stated that he did not realize the letter did not reflect his beliefs and condemned violence and terrorism. He admitted to not knowing enough about the situation and promised to educate himself. He expressed his support for those affected by the conflict and shared his hopes for peace. Over 3,000 artists have reportedly signed the letter, which calls for an immediate ceasefire and humanitarian aid for Gaza.
