With an impressive Instagram following of 53.8 million, Huda Beauty is a powerful platform that resonates with a worldwide audience, inspiring change. Through her active engagement on Instagram, Huda strives to cultivate deeper understanding and garner support for the Palestinian cause.
In a recent post, she encouraged her followers, stating: “Please do not give up! You ARE making a difference! Your voice is powerful, and the children of Gaza & Palestine need your help! Please spread awareness!”
Her generous donation stands as a poignant symbol of her unwavering solidarity with the Palestinian people.
Huda has harnessed her platform to champion a call for a ceasefire in Gaza, advocating for their rights, and urging an end to the ongoing violence and suffering. Her efforts illustrate that even in moments when the world may seem muted or indifferent, there are resolute voices that refuse to be muffled and are wholeheartedly dedicated to seeking justice, compassion, and lasting change for those impacted by these injustices.
In a post today, she stressed: “It is important that we always stand on the side of the oppressed & use our platforms to shed light on any injustice. We cannot stand by & pretend like this is not happening.”
Amidst the relentless turmoil and enduring atrocities that continue to afflict the Palestinian people, Huda stands as a beacon of hope, unwavering in her commitment to speak out against silence.
She thanked people who have bought her products and said it is because of them that she is able to make the donation. “So thank you for your support. Together, we can bring change.”
Kattan, an Iraqi-American based in Dubai, has been a vocal supporter of the Palestinian cause and gained widespread praise for her outspoken support. One notable incident was when an Israeli fan of her products commented on page, scolding her for her support of Palestine and threatening that no Israelis would buy from her again. Kattan’s response was quite simple and to the point — “I don’t want blood money.”
