Proponents of a minute of silence at the Olympic opening ceremony to honor the 11 Israeli athletes killed by Black September terrorists at the 1972 Games used the #StandForMunich11 and #Munich11 hashtags to advocate for an online remembrance.

Actor Josh Malina of “Scandal” and “The West Wing” advocated strongly for the minute of silence on Twitter and actively engaged followers who disagreed.

Of course, it didn’t take long for the Israeli/Palestinian conflict to take over the discussion.

Though the International Olympic Committee has supported other remembrances, IOC president Jacques Rogge had concluded that the upbeat opening ceremony was “an atmosphere not fit to remember such a tragic incident.”

You could very well classify Malina as just another entertainment industry liberal, but his support for the Munich 11 doesn’t seem to be sitting well with other celebrities. Malina claims to have been blocked by Russell Crowe, Deepak Chopra and others.
