Mayim Bialik reveals social media abuse

Mayim Bialik was abused on social media after visiting Israel.

The 39-year-old actress - who's best known for her starring roles on 'Blossom' and 'The Big Bang Theory' - has revealed a recent trip to the Middle Eastern country caused quite a stir on social media.

Mayim, who is Jewish and visited a friend in the Israel Defense Forces, shared: "I've gotten a lot of negative attention for visiting Israel.

"That's what's amazing ... simply by going to Israel this summer and saying nothing more than, 'I've gone to Israel,' I got the same amount of hatred and threats and anti-Semitism for actually making a statement trying to support people whether I like it or not are serving in an army."

The actress also accused the entertainment industry of being unfriendly towards people of faith.

She told FOX411: "I think in general it's never going to be trendy to be observant or religious in Hollywood circles.

"There are people I know of faith and we tend to congregate together. I study Jewish texts weekly. That's something really positive to me when you're a person of faith, it stays with you all the time."
