    Actor John Cusack came under fire for retweeting an anti-Semitic post.

    John Cusack has been under fire in recent days after posting a tweet many believed to be anti-Semitic.

    The 52-year-old actor shared the now-deleted image on Monday, which showed a hand with the Star of David on its sleeve pushing down on people, according to the Daily Beast.

    The image included a quote that read, “To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize,” which is frequently misattributed to the French philosopher Voltaire, but was actually said by white nationalist Kevin Strom, according to the BBC.

    The "Say Anything" star issued an apology after retweeting the meme, claiming he “made a mistake” by sharing the image with his 1 million followers explaining that he’d taken the Star of David to represent the Israeli flag.
