Bill Ackman, a PTPA associate led by Novak Djokovic, was supporting pro-Israel counterprotests at UCLA campus amid violence over the Palestine-Israel conflict, according to reports.

There has been a recent outburst of violence on the UCLA campus, where pro-Israel counterprotesters are allegedly being funded by Bill Ackman, an associate of the PTPA (Professional Tennis Players Association), led by Novak Djokovic.

Pro-Palestine protestors against the Gaza War have sparked controversy on the campus of the University of California, Los Angeles in recent days.Thousands of pro-Israel and pro-Palestine demonstrators poured into the campus, although the first protests were nonviolent. However, things got out of hand on Sunday, and there were multiple fights between the groups. The situation worsened as students were viciously attacked by a masked group who had attacked the Palestinian supporters.

In response, the university canceled classes on Wednesday, and the LAPD (Los Angeles Police Department) also intervened as a result of the violence. The police broke up encampments, and many of the pro-Palestine demonstrators were then taken into custody.Meanwhile, news has surfaced that Bill Ackman, the Chairman of the Board in the freshly formed PTPA ‘Winners Alliance,’ contributed $10,000 to a GoFundMe page supporting Israel.In recent days, the billionaire hedge investor has also posted a great deal of pro-Jewish, anti-Gaza propaganda on social media.

In a 2022 CNBC interview, Bill Ackman praised Novak Djokovic profusely for founding the PTPA.Ackman emphasized that Djokovic is an individual who does not require the PTPA for himself, giving the Serb credit for considering factors other than his own well-being when establishing the association.Rather, Ackman pointed out, the World No. 1 launched it for “legacy reasons,” particularly because he was aware of how expensive it is for players at lower rankings to support themselves through tennis.

By means of Ackman’s foundation, the PTPA was able to gather $26 million in 2022 for its ‘Winners Alliance’ initiative.
