Timothee Chalamet, in his second season hosting Saturday Night Live, aka SNL, attracted a lot of attention for a joke about the Israeli-Palestinian War. In the picture, Timothye appears as a singer who is about to jump from a building when three passers-by convince him to do otherwise. To stop her from jumping, he promises to help her on social media even though her music is terrible.
The three passers-by asked him the name of his group, which Timothee Chalamet says is ‘Hamas’ pronounced ‘Hay-mus.’ Then one of the three yells at Timothee, “Dude, I’m not sharing a Hamas song on Instagram!” The official SNL handle shared the clip on their Instagram, and you can see it here:

The third laughed, “Children were killed; what kind of joke is that?”
