Israeli actress Gal Gadot tweeted in support of Equal Pay Day and received a mixed response on Tuesday.
Gadot has become something of a feminist symbol since her breakthrough role as Wonder Woman in 2017. She has many female fans who look to her as a hero
Gadot also often speaks out in interviews, speeches and on social media on various issues relating to women's rights.
Many of her Twitter follows responded to Gadot's tweet in support of both her and women in general.
There were many responses that were less positive, and one accused Gadot of claiming victimhood.
Others said the pay gap "myth" has been "debunked" and that women do receive equal pay, when maternity leave, time in the workforce and other factors are taken into account.
Another posted a poll, revealing that the majority of those that responded to the poll believed that the pay gap was a myth.
Another common response was from those who took the opportunity to reference Gadot's Israeli background, asking if she also believes in equal rights for Palestinians.
