Plano, TX - Pizza Hut International issued an apology on their official Facebook page after a local Israeli page posted a photo of hunger striking Palestinian leader Marwan Barghouti allegedly eating chocolate, questioning why he hadn’t chosen pizza.

The post, which Pizza Hut stated came from an agency, has since been removed.

“Pizza Hut International apologises for any offence caused by a recent post on Pizza Hut Israel’s Facebook page. It was completely inappropriate and does not reflect the values of our brand,” Pizza Hut stated on the offical page Tuesday night.

“The local franchisee in the country removed it immediately and the relationship with the agency that posted it was terminated, and we truly regret any hurt this may have caused.”
Despite the apology some twitter users have called for a boycott of the franchise.

The Israel Prison Service released a video on Sunday that appears to show Barghouti eating in his prison cell while supposedly leading a hunger strike.


The video shows two times – once on April 27 and the other on May 5 – in which Barghouti, who is serving five life sentences on terrorism convictions, is seen walking to the bathroom in his cell with items in his hands.
