In December 2023, Gomez announced with excitement the introduction of Blanco, a Sicilian and Jewish music producer, as her new partner. Ever since she revealed her relationship with the 35-year-old music producer to the public last month, the world at large and her fans have been taken aback. The reason why her fans were less interested in the singer’s relationship is no longer hidden on her well-liked Twitter fan page: they believe that Blanco is a ‘Zionist’. And therefore, he is not a good fit for the We Don’t Talk Anymore hitmaker.

What Makes People Dislike Selena Gomez’s New Boyfriend? 

Instead of congratulating the Single Soon singer on her newfound love, fans have been skeptical of the relationship. Many people have expressed their thoughts on Benny Blanco not being good enough for Selena Gomez. She has drawn criticism for the romantic linkups with the record producer from fans and other online users. Following the outcry, a series of tweets about Blanco were posted on Selena Gomez’s Charts, a profile devoted to providing updates about the singer.

The producer, who was born in Virginia, has also been involved in several bizarre online antics over the years. Because of this, fans found it difficult to accept him as Gomez’s boyfriend. Selena Gomez Charts posted a list of Blanco’s problematic posts on X on December 15, 2023, which came as a shocking revelation. As stated in the caption, the account:

“Meet the weird and disturbing behavior of Selena Gomez’s boyfriend.”

The thread’s first screenshot is from a 2011 tweet written by Blanco. He praised Israel and mentioned Drake, saying the rapper makes him proud to be Jewish, though it is unclear what the context is. In response to the tweet, Selena Gomez Charts referred to Blanco as a “zionist”.

In the following tweet, Blanco shared a TikTok video of a dog strutting around with his obscenely large phall*s. The subtext “like father, like dog” was added by the producer, suggesting that the dog and his owner—Blanco in this case—share this same characteristic. 

Selena Gomez Charts posted two more TikTok videos that Blanco had previously shared in their third tweet. In other tweets, the 35-year-old made a joke about a man posing as Jesus Christ on a cross.
