Antisemites call to boycott James Bond due to the Jewish origins of the new lead actor

Antisemitic James Bond fans are calling for a boycott of the franchise using the hashtag #BoycottJamesBond, protesting the lead role being offered to Jewish actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson. 

Using the hashtag #BoycottJamesBond on X, users have highlighted Taylor-Johnson’s Jewish origins and protested the choice, reports The Jerusalem Post.

Last week, a source told The Sun, „Bond is Aaron’s job, should he wish to accept it. The formal offer is on the table, and they are waiting to hear back.”

Taylor-Johnson reportedly said, „I find it charming and wonderful that people see me in that role. I take it as a great compliment.”

However, those who oppose him fulfilling the role of Bond due to his Jewish origins posted heavily on X, using the hashtag #BoycottJamesBond.

One comment on the post read, „Trying to clean up the image of Mossad. Or is James gonna be running an international child sex trafficking ring this time like the real world???”

Nevertheless, many stood by the choice. Israeli MK Danny Danon commented on the boycott on X, saying, „Aaron Taylor-Johnson would make a terrific James Bond,” while a prominent account by Dr. Anastasia Maria Loupis wrote to her 1.2 million followers, „James Bond has been chosen. Aaron Taylor Johnson. AND he’s Jewish.”
