Canadian poet Rupi Kaur says she’s turned down an invitation from U.S. President Joe Biden’s administration because she opposes his government’s response to the Israel-Hamas war.

The India-born Kaur said on Instagram that the administration invited her to U.S. Vice-President Kamala Harris’s Diwali celebration.

She wrote that she won’t attend because the U.S. government is funding Israel’s bombardment of Gaza.
