One simple tweet was enough to classify American rapper Bhad Bhabie as pro-Israel, and make Jordanian producers cancel her show in Amman, scheduled one day before her appearance in Tel Aviv.

The incident began when a Twitter handle named Palestine Alqadi penned a long tweet in Arabic that called on Jordanians to boycott Bhad Bhabie because she supports Israel.

The rapper, whose real name is Danielle Bregoli, oddly replied: "Why yes, I do like McDonald's fries. They be tasting good as f*** sometimes. I appreciate you asking bi**. Much love." The out-of-context tweet was since deleted from her account.

Bhad Bhabie became an internet celebrity in 2018 at the young age of 16. She made headlines when she appeared on the Dr. Phil show with her mother, who wanted to wane her off stealing cars, carrying knives, and twerking. She released her debut single in 2017, and has since released many others with great success.

The production company "Live Nation Israel" commented that the rapper's performance in Israel, scheduled for July 9 in the Barby in Tel Aviv, will take place as planned.
