Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt they were one of the most famous marriages in the world. They are the parents of six children. The three adopted – Maddox, Pax, Zahara, and Shiloh and the twins Knox and Vivienne are their biological offspring. In May, the court battle between the former spouses for the rights to care for the offspring officially ended. The judiciary has ruled that celebrities should alternate custody of the offspring.

Angelina Jolie joined Instagram
Angelina Jolie joined the Instagram community on Friday, August 20. Almost immediately, it gathered almost 2 million observers. The fact that she has appeared on social media right now is not a coincidence. The actress is known for her social involvement and it was the events in Afghanistan, which also shocked Polish stars, that pushed her to take this step. On her profile we read: Mom, filmmaker, UN Special Envoy @refuges, there is also a link to UNHCR.org.
In the first, extensive post, she highlights a problem that affects the entire world. Let us remind you. Afghan Taliban entered Kabul. Taking advantage of the withdrawal of international military forces led by the US, they took control of the country. The country plunged into a civil war. Successive countries have evacuated embassies and their citizens. President Ashraf Ghani also left. The situation is critical.
Jolie’s post mainly concerns the situation of women who, led by extremists, will lose their rights, won over 20 years.
This is a letter that a teenager from Afghanistan sent me. Currently, people in Afghanistan are losing the ability to communicate on social media and express themselves freely. So I went to Instagram to share their stories and the voices of people around the world fighting for their basic human rights, she wrote.
Then she shared her experiences in Afghanistan.
I was at the Afghan border two weeks before 9/11 where I met Afghan refugees who had fled the Taliban. It was twenty years ago. It is disgusting to see Afghans being displaced again out of the fear and uncertainty that has engulfed their country.
She also shared her indignation.
To spend so much time and money, shed blood, and lose your life just to get there is a failure that is almost impossible to understand. Watching for decades how Afghan refugees – some of the most talented people in the world – are treated as a burden is also disgusting. Knowing that if they had the tools and respect, how much would they do for themselves. And meet so many women and girls who not only wanted education, but also fought for it, she continued.
Finally, she asked to join her.
Like others who are involved, I won’t turn away. I will continue to look for ways to help. And I hope you will join me.
The fast had a huge response. Internet users support Angelina Jolie en masse and sympathize with the Afghans.
