As of Saturday morning, the photo has over 499,000 likes. In the caption Gomez wrote, “Please pray for those families and babies today. Please always remember what’s important in life. It’s not any of this. We are here to help, inspire and love. Be that change. #wearethenextgeneration.”

Since Israel launched its military campaign in Gaza, several celebrities like Rihanna and NBA star Dwight Howard have caused controversy for tweeting — and then deleting — statements in support of Palestinians.
