Gal Gadot may be a superhero on screen but she isn’t such a wonderful women when the cameras stop rolling. She’s probably the same person who parks in the handicap parking spaces believing she’s doing the physically disabled a favor. Empowering them by reducing the amount of spots available to park in the front of the establishment, thus allowing them the equal opportunity of a headache when looking for a space within decent walking distance. Or rolling distance in their case. She was labeled an “ist” of the worst kind by the internet. After tweeting that Dr. Hawking was free of physical constraint by passing away the outrage community wasted no time calling her an ableist and fun maker of those in motor chairs.
Rest in peace Dr. Hawking. Now you’re free of any physical constraints.. Your brilliance and wisdom will be cherished forever ✨ pic.twitter.com/EQzSxqNTuN

One of the individuals that was outraged claims to be blind so I would like to know how exactly did he see her tweet. But either way the blue placard community doesn’t play around with insults or any ableist believing they’re superior just because individuals on wheels have trouble reaching the light switches in every 7 out of 10 rooms. Even Dr. Hawking was known for “running over the toes of those he didn’t like.” Literally. Gal’s tiny toe definitely deserves a tire on top of it after her insensitive comments. But I honestly doubt Gal goes around town purposely talking down to everyone that looks like Jimmy and Timmy from South Park. She’ll recover from this if she openly apologizes and purchases at least one underprivileged family a mini van with a ramp.
I think you’re fantastic Gal but this tweet is very ableist. His physical constraints didn’t stop him from changing the world. People with disabilities don’t wish for death to be free of their challenges. We wish to be valued for what we CAN do, not pitied for we can’t.
