Gogglebox star ignites 48-hour protest against anti-Semitism after Wiley tweets

Gogglebox’s Amy Tapper has taken a vow of silence on social media for 48 hours to protest against anti-Semitism.

The television star was left ‘disappointed’ following Wiley’s alleged anti-Semitic tweets last week and said she was ‘really upset’ by the lack of celebrities speaking out and raising awareness on their platform.

Taking a stand, Amy explained her decision on a post shared on her Instagram story.

‘I am going silent for 48 hours on social media… I hope you guys take this time to educate yourselves,’ she wrote.

Amy joins a number of Jewish celebrities who’ve also agreed on a social media blackout.

EastEnders and Friday Night Dinner actress Tracy-Ann Oberman announced news of the blackout on Saturday.

‘Please join us [email protected] has allowed @WileyCEO 48 hours of pure race hate,’ she tweeted.

‘His tweets are still up. @jack has to stick by their remit of anti racism. Silence is complicity. Please walk out with us .

‘No to all race hate . No to platforming any race hate.’

The protest comes after grime rapper Wiley was temporarily banned from Twitter following a shocking rant in which he compared the Jewish community to the Ku Klux Klan.

The Metropolitan Police have confirmed they are investigating the incident and the artist has since been dropped by his management.
