Pro-Hamas Pundit Who Rolled Eyes at Hamas Rapes Fired From ‘The Hill’

Left-wing commentator Briahna Joy Gray has been fired from The Hill, days after she dismissed claims of sexual violence perpetrated by Hamas against Israeli hostages.

The former cohost of The Hill’s morning YouTube program Rising went viral after an interview on Tuesday in which she rolled her eyes at Yarden Gonen, the sister of a hostage in Gaza, after Gonen urged her to believe Israel women who had been raped.

Gray announced her termination on X, saying that The Hill "has a clear pattern of suppressing speech—particularly when it's critical of the state of Israel."

Gray, who served as press secretary to Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) during his 2020 presidential campaign, has denied reports that Hamas engaged in mass rape of Israeli women. "‘Believe all women’ was always an absurd overreach: woman should be heard, claims should be investigated, but evidence is required. … But also, this isn’t a ‘believe women’ scenario bc no female victims have offered testimony," she wrote in December.

During a debate on the war in Israel at the "Dissident Dialogues" summit last month, Gray denounced the audience as "racist" and "disgusting," called the moderator "anti-black," and said she hoped "someone drops a bomb on this entire building."

Democratic congressman Ritchie Torres (N.Y.) responded to the news of her firing on X, saying, "I have as much sympathy for Briahna Joy Gray as she has for the hostages. None."
