The post ends with ‘F*** America’ and ‘F*** Israel’ along with the hashtag ‘#freepalestine’.
An Elite New York spokesperson confirmed to the New York Post that Deterre was let go from her role on Tuesday, but declined to give a reason.
Deterre was born in Manhattan and has worked at interior design firm Roman and Williams, whose credits include Gwyneth Paltrow’s property in Montecito, California.
She has also modeled for labels including Maryam Nassir Zadeh and Eckhaus Latta.
She is the daughter of Ana Opitz, who co-owned the SoHo vodka bar Pravda, a famed celebrity haunt that closed after 20 years.
Deterre was also one of the main figures behind the design of Casino, a Chinatown-based restaurant that opened last December.
The profile said the venue is ‘one of the best designed new restaurants on the scene’.
The war that began after Hamas’s deadly assault on Israel on October 7 has brought widespread protests to the US.
On Saturday, thousands of pro-Palestinian protesters poured onto the streets of Brooklyn, New York’s largest district to voice their anger at Israel’s bombardment of the Gaza Strip.
For the past three weeks, the city has been rocked by demonstrations, rallies and vigils in support of the Palestinians and Israel.
Left-wing American Jewish activists are also up in arms against Israel’s war against Hamas in Gaza.
Mayor Eric Adams, who governs a city of nearly nine million people, including the world’s largest Jewish community after Israel, has repeatedly assured pro-Israel rallies that Israel’s ‘fight’ is New York’s fight too.
Some 8,796 Palestinians including 3,648 children have been killed in Gaza since the war with Israel erupted on October 7.
More than 1,400 people in Israel have been killed, most of them civilians.
