Gal shared her thoughts nearly two years since it sparked netizens' anger
6 Jan - Gal Gadot recently admitted that her infamous "Imagine" video has been made in poor taste.
The "Wonder Woman" star, and several Hollywood stars by association, were previously blasted by netizens after posting a video of them doing a rendition of John Lennon's "Imagine" in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Many expressed frustration and annoyance for its blatant unawareness of privilege, and the video itself immediately became viral for all the wrong reasons.

Now, in an interview with InStyle, Gadot admitted that the whole thing was premature at best, stating, "It's funny. I was calling Kristen [Wiig] and I was like, 'Listen, I want to do this thing.' The pandemic was in Europe and Israel before it came here [to the US] in the same way. I was seeing where everything was headed. But [the video] was premature. It wasn't the right timing, and it wasn't the right thing. It was in poor taste."
"All pure intentions, but sometimes you don't hit the bull's-eye, right?" she added.
Back in October, Gadot defended the video, saying that her intention did not come across as planned.
"I started it, and I can only say that I meant to do something good and pure, and it didn't transcend," she said.
Among celebrities who joined her in performing the song include Jimmy Fallon, Pedro Pascal, Natalie Portman, Sarah Silverman, James Marsden, Amy Adams, Mark Ruffalo, and Will Ferrell.
