Huda Kattan

Huda Kattan, the influential American-Iraqi makeup artist behind Huda Beauty, has garnered global acclaim for her innovative cosmetic creations, establishing herself as a prominent figure in the beauty industry, now based in Dubai. However, recent events have cast a shadow over her reputation. Since October 7th, Huda has come under scrutiny for her failure to denounce Hamas’ actions against innocent Israelis. Instead, she has been accused of victim-blaming by sharing and liking false antisemitic posts, thus contributing to the propagation of Jew-hatred.

Since October 7, 2023, Huda’s social media activity has resulted in her inclusion on StopAntisemitism’s StopDontShop website. This platform highlights businesses and individuals who either endorse Israel or disseminate antisemitic rhetoric targeting Jews or Israelis.

Here is a sampling of the antisemitic content disseminated by Huda to her millions of followers in the wake of the October 7th terror attack:

  • On October 13, 2023, not even a week after Hamas murdered, raped, and kidnapped innocent men, women, and children, Huda liked a post defending Hamas’ kidnapping of Israeli babies because they were still living.
  • Huda has retweeted and liked multiple blatantly false posts on how well Hamas terrorists treated Israeli hostages in Gaza.
  • Huda has also retweeted and liked multiple inaccurate posts alleging Israelis killing premature babies and torturing Palestinian children in jail. Egypt debunked the babies’ claim by assisting the IDF in escorting them from Al-Shifa hospital in Gaza to Egyptian care. Furthermore, Huda’s sharing of a photo depicting a Palestinian child with seemingly broken arms was proven false upon the emergence of footage showing the child both before and after the alleged incident, with no signs of broken bones.
  • Huda openly supports terrorists like Ahed Tamimi, who was arrested in November after posting about her desire to drink Israelis’ blood and eat their skulls. Tamimi was later released in a hostage/prisoner swap between Israel and Hamas.
  • One month after October 7th, without issuing any remorse or support for the Jewish community, Huda shared antisemitic blood libel, posing a question about Israel’s direct involvement in the genocide of Congo. There is zero connection between Israel and any genocides in all of history.

Huda Kattan’s consistent dissemination of antisemitic libel targeting the Jewish community warrants attention and action. Given that Huda Beauty products are currently available nationwide at Sephora, it’s crucial to highlight this issue and advocate for change. Email Sephora and urge them to disassociate from Huda due to her promotion of Jew-hating rhetoric.
