In early October, it was discovered that Eric liked an Instagram post that expressed a neutral stance over the ongoing Israel-Palestine crisis.

The viral post reads, “It is absolutely reasonable and logical to be opposed to the Israeli government’s treatment of Palestinians WHILE SIMULTANEOUSLY calling for the protection of Jews in Israel and around the world…

Many felt the post’s neutral stance overlooked the ongoing struggles in the region, with many fans pointing out exactly how distressing the humanitarian crisis is.

didn’t expect it from eric nam but imagine if idols were allowed to express their political views, i’d probably be stanning 4 people in the industry imo

Around the time of his liked post spreading, Eric tweeted an announcement about the Asian dates of his ongoing House On A Hill tour. Many fans responded to the announcement with criticism, including many Malaysian fans who even insisted the artist not come to the country.

Now, following the criticism, it seems Eric Nam has removed the Kuala Lumpur date from his website. Previously, the Malaysian concert was scheduled for February 20th, and the original tweet including it, was deleted.

While there has been no official word, many netizens felt that this quiet removal points to a confirmation of his thoughts on the crisis.
