According to one of the Twitter users, “Reducing the rating of the series will not liberate Palestine, but it will affect production and affect viewers and advertisement if the campaign becomes global,”

Some of the IMDB comments are mentioned below:

“The cast should stop showing their love for an apartheid state that kills Palestinians, destroy their homes and steal[s] their land,” read one comment, with a rating of one star out of ten. Another review accused the show of “claim[ing] to support the oppressed and downtrodden yet they openly support the Zionist occupation of the Palestinians.”

Even the Palestinian account also came forward to stand with others. “Like when we succeeded in decreasing the rating of Facebook and Instagram on Google Play and the App Store. We can make an achievement and lower the rating of the La Casa de Papel series on IMDb.”

“We must have a voice deliver a message to the producers of the series that the stars of the series praising the occupation will not go unnoticed.”

It looks like the hatred went on another level, no one saw it coming at all. Because this would make a huge impact on their Season 5 Vol.2 because if it goes on their ratings will go down badly.
