Political question

Can someone explain to me why some folks seem to have a problem with Gal Gadot? I don't understand what the issue is.

With the caveat that I have not been following the story very closely, my understanding is that it's because she has made statements in the past supportive of the IDF, the Israeli Defense Force (the Israeli Army). There are also suggestions that it's more to do with the fact that she's Israeli than anything else.

Yes, Lebanon has banned the film because it stars an Israeli actress. (Which makes no sense because they haven't banned movies starring Natalie Portman.)
I don't like superhero movies as a role but I enjoyed this one.
