Schnapp is most well known for playing Will Byers on Netflix's 'Stranger Things.'

The Netflix star and his pals made funny faces to the camera as they posed with the stickers, an act that's now led to cancellation calls for the actor, famous for portraying Will Byers in the popular Sci-Fi series.

"Zionism" is a term used to define the Jewish nationalist movement of 1897. After the Holocaust and the end of World War II, the Zionist movement led to the formation of Israel in the 1948 War, also known as The Nakba, which means "catastrophe" in Arabic.

The video of Schnapp and his friends promoting Zionism followed global protests calling for an Israeli ceasefire as the humanitarian crisis in Gaza reaches a point of no return — and as both Jewish and pro-Palestinian critics condemned the Zionist movement as genocide.

After the controversial clip made its rounds on social media, one X user responded, "Not even surprised anymore, he just wants his career to be over at this point."

Another user wrote, "he’s so open about this it’s actually concerning & scary. he needs to stop."

"Noah Schnapp can sit in fancy cafes with his friends, be pro-genocide & Islamophobic openly but still talk about 'being scared as a Jew' while people are getting called terrorists & get arrested over just saying free Palestine," another X user replied.

The user was referring to a previous Instagram post from Schnapp in the immediate aftermath of the October 7 attacks that read, "As a Jewish American, I am afraid."

Another outraged X user chimed in, "seeing these rich people with huge smiles on their faces as they support a genocide from the comfort of a cute little coffee shop is disgusting."
