Naturally, she received quite a bit of hate for this from the online Israel haters and antisemites. But Eugenie would have none of it, returning this passing shot for the win!

We have seen a few examples of celebrities and sportspeople backing down or deleting their pro-Israel posts after receiving such torrents of abuse. How refreshing to see one with the balls to stand their ground. Props to you, Eugenie!
