‘To All the Boys I Loved Before’ Actor Israel Broussard Has A History Of Problematic Tweets

2 min


Hailed as another win for Asian-American representation, the Netflix film To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before has been acclaimed as an authentic and beautiful portrayal of a young girl’s coming-of-age. It’s too bad that the actor who plays one of her love interests, Israel Broussard, has a history of posting and liking problematic tweets.

Fans allegedly found some unsettling old tweets from the actor’s account, which included posts criticizing the Black Lives Matter movement and anti-Asian, anti-Muslim, and anti-immigration sentiments. Broussard, who plays Josh in the new Netflix original, also liked tweets from President Donald Trump and other controversial public figures.

Broussard’s questionable tweets have now been deleted, but users posted screenshots.

“Dogs can sense earthquakes. Too bad Japan ate them all,” Broussard wrote in one tweet. According to user Seb_Paradise, the actor posted it on July 12, 2011, two days after a 7.0 magnitude earthquake hit Japan.

Some users claimed that Broussard was following Trump on Twitter, but as of press time he was not following the president. Broussard also liked a tweet from conspiracy theorist David Icke concerning the Sandy Hook shooting, which some people wrongly believe to be a staged event.

Following the revelation of problematic tweets, some fans denounced Broussard.

No wonder Lara Jean ended up with Peter Kavinsky instead of him.
