Mayim Bialik Hits Back at Critics Who Slammed Her for Talking About 'Private Matter' of Her Faith: 'It's Public Whether I Like It or Not!'

Mayim Bialik isn't backing down.

The Emmy-nominated Big Bang Theory star took to Facebook to defend herself after receiving backlash for an interview she gave Fox 411 last week, in which she said it wasn't "trendy" to be religious in Hollywood.

"To the man who admonished me for discussing religion bc its 'supposed to be a private matter': it is private until Fox news asks you about it because you're on a TV show," she wrote on Tuesday morning. "And also, I'm Jewish. It's not just about my religion. It's my ethnic and peoplehood. It's public whether I like it or not!"

Bialik told PEOPLE on Monday that she didn't see her comments to Fox 411 as "a negative thing."

Mayim Bialik on Her Jewish Faith Not Being 'Trendy' in Hollywood: 'I've Gotten a Lot of Negative Attention for Visiting Israel'

Mayim Bialik says it's hard to be religious in Hollywood.

"I think in general it's never going to be trendy to be observant or religious in Hollywood circles," Bialik told Fox 411 in an interview published Friday.

Bialik, 39, is of the Jewish faith and opened up about some serious backlash she received after a recent trip to Israel.

"I've gotten a lot of negative attention for visiting Israel," she said, recalling a visit to a friend in the Israel Defense Forces. "That's what 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 [who] whether I like it or not are serving in an army."

"That reveals the truth," she continued. "It really doesn't matter what I support or believe; the fact that I'm Jewish and go there is enough – that should be alarming to most people."
