Pop star Lorde has said she is considering pulling out of a scheduled concert in Israel after a backlash from fans.
"Noted! Been speaking w many people about this and considering all options. Thank u for educating me i am learning all the time too," Lorde tweeted.
"A performance in Israel sends the wrong message. Playing in Tel Aviv will be seen as giving support to the policies of the Israeli government, even if you make no comment on the political situation," they wrote.
"Such an effect cannot be undone by even the best intention and the best music."
After the decision, he said: "There are occasions when merely having your name added to a concert schedule may be interpreted as a political act that resonates more than anything that might be sung and it may be assumed that one has no mind for the suffering of the innocent."
Dozens of artists including Tilda Swinton, Ken Loach and Mark Ruffalo wrote to The Guardian this month condemning Donald Trump's controversial decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
The UN General Assembly voted overwhelmingly to denounce the US President's move on Thursday.
